Katie Price’s daughter Bunny, six, stole the hearts of viewers of Monday night’s BBC documentary following her mum and brother Harvey.  

Viewers of the documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me swarmed Twitter to note the touching bond between the siblings, after one amazing scene saw Bunny bring her brother his iPad before they settled into watching Peppa Pig together.     

The widely-praised BBC One film documented the highs and lows of Harvey, whose father is Dwight Yorke, transitioning into adulthood and Katie’s journey into researching for a specialist college that caters to Harvey’s complex needs. 

The teen, who is the eldest of her five kids, is on the autism spectrum and was born with disabilities including partial blindness, ADHD and Prader-Willi syndrome.

Katie is also mum to Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with her ex-husband Peter Andre, 47, and son Jett, seven, and Bunny with Kieran, 33.

The documentary saw Katie’s difficult task in finding a residential college for Harvey which wasn’t too far from home and in which her son felt comfortable in.

The show also detailed her anguish at learning to let her son go as she worried whether he could cope without her.

At the forefront of everything was the emotional bond between Katie and Harvey, with the former glamour model clearly devoted to her son, while Harvey’s adoration of his mother was hard to miss. 

One scene in the show saw Harvey become distressed and kick a door as he struggled to adjust to his new surrounding, with Katie making the decision to leave the college tour early, saying: ‘That was overwhelming for him.’

However, there was good news for Harvey later in the show as the pair visited National Star College in Ullenwood, near Cheltenham, with Harvey seeming delighted at the college.

After the show was filmed, Katie was again taking to social media to share an amazing video showing her and Harvey playing with scratchcards. 

Katie revealed she had splashed out £80 on cards, and asked Harvey what he would do if he won ‘a million pounds,’ as he revealed he would buy ‘a big chocolate cake.’

The 13-minute video was filled with incredibly touching moments showing the unshakable bond between the duo as they bantered over the scratchcards. 

At one moment, Harvey scratches the card so hard that he accidentally gets rid of the numbers underneath – to which Katie revealed it could have been their winning moment.  

WHAT IS PRADER-WILLI SYNDROME?

Prader-Willi syndrome is a rare genetic condition that causes problems including constant urges to eat food, restricted growth and reduced muscle tone.

Other potential issues include learning difficulties, lack of sexual development and behavioral problems such as tantrums or stubbornness.

The rare condition, which affects one in every 15,000 children born in England, is caused by a defect on chromosome number 15 – and happens by chance.

Because there is no cure, treatment aims to manage the symptoms – with parents of sufferers urged to get their children to stick to a healthy, balanced diet.

Children with the syndrome can eat up to six times more than children of the same age – and still feel hungry.

It was first described in 1956 by Swiss doctors A Prader, A Labhart and H Willi.
