Katie Price's son undergoing 'routine operation'

Katie Price's son Harvey is undergoing a "routine operation" at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

The 37-year-old star confirmed via her Instagram account that her 13-year-old son - who suffers from septo-optic dysplasia and Prader-Willi syndrome - was in hospital with an unspecified problem, but she has subsequently said the concern is only minor and has thanked fans for their support.

Katie told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Harvey is currently in Great Ormond Street Hospital for a routine operation.

"He will hopefully be out in a few days but I wanted to say how touched I am by all those asking about his wellbeing."

Earlier this year, Katie revealed she's grown used to coping with Harvey's health problems.

She said: "I'm not going to lie - it's very hard work bringing up a child with disabilities ... He's on medication six times a day and if he doesn't take it, he'll die. And he has an injection at night.

"I can see how some people would probably find it hard because it's very challenging and stuff but I am a very patient and laid-back person and I think that makes a difference. I just love him and I wouldn't change anything about him."
