Katie Price admits finding it ‘hard’ not being able to drive to see Harvey after losing license
Katie Price has revealed she catches up with her 19-year-old son Harvey on FaceTime twice a day after he's moved to Cheltenham in Gloucestershire to his residential college National Star.
And in her new memoir, Harvey And Me: A Mother’s Love, Katie, 43, has addressed how she has been struggling with the distance between her and her eldest son after he relocated three months ago.
Now, speaking to new!, the mum of five admitted she is still finding it hard, especially as she can't drive to see her son whenever she wants to since losing her driving license.
"It’s been hard," Katie, who revealed her daughter Bunny suffers from bullying because of her fake boobs and wigs, began.
She continued: "Before, I felt better knowing that I was getting my driving licence back in December so that I could drive to him whenever I wanted."
"So now, I’m trying to get my head around the fact that I’m going to be banned from driving for a long time [after her drink-drive crash]."
Katie then told us she previously planned to take her other kids – Junior, Princess, Bunny, and Jett – to see Harvey settling into his new life.
"I had originally planned to take the kids to see him and go and see my mum as well because she’s really ill now," she shared. "It’s hard, but I know that Harvey is happy there."
The star also discussed how Harvey is settling into his college, going into detail over what they do together on their weekends when she visits.
"He’s loving it. I visit him every weekend, without fail. Before he went to college, he saw me every weekend so I didn’t want that to change," Katie added.

"If it did, he wouldn’t understand why I wasn’t seeing him. So I make sure that I always make the effort."
The doting mother explained: "I make sure I take him out. When he was at home, I spent a lot of time cleaning up after him, which I obviously didn’t mind.
"But now, because he’s being looked after at college, we can spend proper quality time together when I see him – which is amazing."
Katie also told us she and Harvey went Christmas tree shopping, which Harvey loved.
She said: "The other weekend, I took him to buy a Christmas tree and then we went to a garden centre and got him lots of baubles and decorations.
"We took it all back to his little flat in the college and put everything up for him. He loves looking at all the Christmas lights, which is really common for people with autism. "
