Katie Price’s 16 year old son Harvey enters Autism’s Got Talent
Harvey Price has entered this year’s Autism’s Got Talent competition.
The talent show — which showcases the talents of both children and adults living with the condition — will hold auditions in Cornwall later this month.
Katie Price’s 16 year old son has autism, a rare complex genetic condition called Prader-Willi syndrome and is partially blind.
Cornwall Live reports that Harvey will make his stage debut when the roadshow hits St Ives on 29 June, playing the keyboard.
Harvey has played the instrument since he was four years old, but was inspired to audition for the inspiring competition after watching Autism’s Got Talent in London last month.
The competition’s founder, Anna Kennedy OBE, took to Twitter to confirm Harvey’s participation in the contest by sharing a photo of him and Katie on stage at the contest.
She wrote: “Thank you to @KatiePrice and lovely Harvey for supporting out 8th Autism’s got Talent yesterday.
“Harvey helping his mum introduce one of our performers Daniel. Harvey will be performing at our Autism’s got Talent Roadshow in #Stives.“

It is believed that Katie will be in the audience to cheer him on in the contest.
Speaking about the contest — Anna told Cornwall Live: “It is a fantastic opportunity for those with autism to get up on stag and really show what they can do.
“We have had participants from Croatia, Canada and the USA and have also showcased world class gymnasts and artists who have appeared on The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.

“People with autism of all ages are making history, showing that autism need be no barrier to success.”
Harvey will appear alongside 34 year old magician Jono Blythe and 11 year old musician Lakhile Dlamini — who can play a song after hearing it just once — at the event.
Singer Charlotte Fieldson, who was non-verbal until she was five years old when she suddenly began to sing Sleeping Beauty, will also perform.
