Katie Price wants Harvey to finally meet his secret half-brother and tells ex Dwight Yorke ‘the door is always open’

KATIE Price wants Harvey to finally meet his secret half-brother and tells ex Dwight Yorke "the door is always open".

The mum-of-five, 42, hopes the footballer, 49, watches her upcoming documentary and has a change of heart about seeing his son, 18.

Katie also doesn't know whether Dwight's other son – Orlando, who was born in 2007 – even realises he has a brother.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the reality star said: "His dad has never stuck up for him. It's a weird one – I don't know why and I don't understand why he doesn't want to be in touch.

"I would love Dwight to watch the documentary and reach out to Harvey. I've always said the door is open for Dwight when he wants to get in touch.

"At the end of the day Harvey has done nothing wrong, he's innocent and deserves to know his dad and meet his half-brother.

"Why should Harvey be deprived of that and why should Harvey's brother not get the chance to meet Harvey? I wonder if he even knows Harvey is his brother?"

Katie hopes Dwight watches her BBC show Katie Price: Harvey and Me on January 25 at 8.30pm, which documents her life as her son’s carer.

Last July Katie hit out at the pundit for failing to get in touch after Harvey was rushed to hospital as his temperature hit 42C and he struggled to breathe.

She blasted: “Whether you want to be in your son’s life or not, you still created him and he’s still your son.

“If you know your son is in intensive care and there’s a chance he could die, as a human being with feelings you should get in contact.”

The TV star has raised disabled Harvey mostly as a single mother.

The 18-year-old is partially blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome.

Harvey’s autism means loud noises and slamming doors can cause him to lash out unpredictably, headbutting walls and smashing windows.

At 6ft 2in and almost 29st, it is too hard for 5ft 4in Katie to calm or restrain him.

This is why Katie has made the heartbreaking decision to put Harvey into a residential college, which will teach him to have a more independent life and learn new skills.

Katie said: “It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day but 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.

“This is his chance to live an independent life, learn skills and socialise with people other than me.

“I’m trying to get him used to me not being there all the time. But he’ll call on his iPad and say, ‘Mum, I need you’, and I run to him.

“When he’s three hours away it will break my heart because I won’t be able to get there as I’ve got to juggle him with my other kids.

“When he goes to college he will learn to be an adult. He says now, ‘Mummy, I’m not a boy, I’m a man.’

“The other kids are excited for him — they want to see what he can do. But I think they’ll find it hard when he’s not around on weekends.

“I need to learn to let go but it’s tough — anyone in my position knows how hard it is.

“We have an incredible bond. I don’t know how Harvey will react or how he’ll feel when I can’t get to him. It’s too painful to think about.”

Katie has her heart set on the Northern Star long-term living accommodation in Cheltenham, Gloucs.
