Katie Price reveals Harvey smashed his expensive Christmas present in a rage after ‘destroying six TVs in lockdown’

KATIE Price revealed Harvey smashed his expensive Christmas present in a rage after "destroying six TVs in lockdown".

The 42-year-old revealed in her BBC documentary Harvey And Me how her eldest, 18, smashed six TVs in the first lockdown.

Harvey has Prader-Willi Syndrome and is on the autistic spectrum, so can get frustrated at a variety of triggers.

Now in Katie's latest YouTube video, the star revealed Harvey has now smashed the projector – a Christmas present he received to stop him smashing TVs.

Katie said: "I got you a projector at Christmas to stop you smashing TVs. Then you smashed the projector thing so that didn't really work either?"

Harvey's Prader-Willi Syndrome means he struggles with an excessive appetite.

The condition can impact muscle tone and functions of the nervous system and sparks the constant desire to eat.

Katie has opened up in the past how she has to padlock kitchen cupboards to stop Harvey, whose weight has reached 29st, from eating.

However, the teenager sometimes turns violent when he doesn't get what he wants.

She told The Sun last year: "It’s a cruel and horrible illness where he feels hungry all the time — and if he doesn’t get food he gets angry. It’s hard work.

"He'll smash things up if you say no. I’ve had to re-plaster my walls because he’ll bash holes in them with his head.

"He knows what nice things taste of. I’ll give him sweet potato chips instead of real fries but he knows the difference.

"It's not what he eats in the day, it’s what he eats when I don’t see him. I’ve tried hiding food but he’ll find it.

"You can’t leave food or leftovers on the side or he’ll eat it, and he’s really quick too.

"He even eats in his sleep. He'll walk downstairs and eat whatever he can find. We've even found him rummaging through friends' bags for food."

Katie deliberately avoided showing the worst behaviour of Harvey in her doc, who has ADHD, autism, genetic condition ­Prader-Willi Syndrome and septo-optic dysplasia, which causes blindness.

However, she told The Sun he once destroyed a car windscreen with his bare hands and tried to attack a driver.

She said: "To give you an idea how strong he is, he smashed out a windscreen on the car that takes him to school and back.

"If the routing goes wrong he gets out and just punches the window screen.

"I could have shown all that [in the documentary] and show all the smashed tellies lined up outside ready to be dumped. But I’m not really going to gain anything from all that. It's enough you see all the holes in the wall.

"But it’s more damage he can do to himself. If he smashes a window he can cut his hand up, or sometimes he head butts the wall and could split his head open.

"When he’s in the car, I worry that he might open the car door which is why he always has someone in the car with him when he goes to school, and sometimes he might go for the driver."
