“Ahhhh, I see you chose the best setting for him (I’ve been there many times in my line of work). Well done Harvey,” another added, acknowledging Katie and Harvey’s journey to find him the best residential college to cater for his needs.

Katie, who is also mum to Junior, 16, Princess, 13, Jett, seven, and six-year-old Bunny, spoke about Harvey’s health battles in her recent memoir, Harvey and Me, and said he will live at the college in Cheltenham for the next six years.

“I hope like any mum with a child with a severe, complex disability, that Harvey will be able to live a full and independent life,” the former Page 3 pin-up wrote.

“But I know Harvey best and I know he will always need his mum. I will always encourage him to be independent and continue his journey in an environment I think he will thrive in,” Katie explained.

Harvey is supported by trained specialists at the award-winning college, which caters for people aged 16 to 25, and features a wide programme of activities, including aquatic therapy and drama.

Katie has admitted it's not easy for her to not see Harvey every day.

“I’ve been responsible for him all his life, and now it feels weird to have this freedom,” she wrote.
