“He wakes everyone up at night—it’s always disturbed sleep,” she said on the radio show. “He’s been waking the kids up all the time, and he’d go for the kids. You don’t want them worried. It was a crisis.”
Katie also made it clear that although caring for Harvey has had it challenges, she “would not change Harvey for anything.”
The Celebrity Big Brother alum previously opened up about the decision earlier this month. She had told The Sun that it will be “so upsetting” to not see him every day, but that “this is the best thing for Harvey, and we have to think positively because I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.”
As explained in The Sun, Harvey attended residential school for five days a week at the start of 2020 but returned home in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Katie will learn in March 2021 whether he is admitted into her new school of choice.
A documentary about the mother and son entitled Katie Price: Harvey and Me will air Monday, Jan. 25 on BBC One.
