Television personality Katie Price has said that her son Harvey has been moved out of intensive care and has again thanked people for their support.

The 18-year-old was hospitalised in the UK last weekend with breathing difficulties and a high temperature. Harvey was born with the genetic disorders Septo Optic Dysplasia and Prader–Willi syndrome. He is autistic, partially blind and has learning and behavioural difficulties.

In a post on Instagram on Friday night, Price wrote: "Hey everyone update my @officialmrharveyprice baby boy, he has been incredibly strong and brave and this evening he has improved, I'm so happy, it's been so difficult, I love him so much and want to thank you all again for your support and lovely messages, this picture I've taken today, only one drip in and moved out of icu." Price included prayer and heart emojis in her post.

Earlier this month it was announced that the mother and son are making a new BBC documentary about their life together.

"Being a parent of a child with complex needs, as Harvey has, presents daily challenges," said Price as the documentary, which has the working title Katie Price: Harvey & Me, was announced. "Simple day-to-day things that other people take for granted can take all day.

"Every day presents a new challenge, no two days are the same. We have learnt and grown together, and together we have built our private world, a bond between mother and son which goes deeper than most - we are unbreakable."
