    Katie Price knows her son Harvey is "extremely settled" at residential college because he has been "smashing" up his room

    The 43-year-old star's eldest child – who has a number of complex health conditions, including septo-optic dysplasia, autism and Prader-Willi syndrome – has been living at the National Star residential college in Cheltenham for the last three months and Katie knows the 19 year old is comfortable there because he's done so much damage


    She said: "I know for certain that Harvey is extremely settled because he’s now smashed things up. He’s smashed his computer and his keyboard up, he’s smashed his printer, his TV and even the lights in his room. He also lifted a table up to try and throw it at the window.

    "I said to the staff at the college, 'I’m so happy that he’s done all this because now I know he’s really settling in!' They’re now living and breathing what I’ve had all of these years."

    Katie travels three hours to visit Harvey every weekend and was looking forward to getting her driving license back later this month to make the trips easier, but after recently pleading guilty to drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance after crashing her car on September 28, she knows now she won't be back behind the wheel any time soon.

    She told Britain’s OK! magazine: "It’s been hard. 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.

    "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. It’s hard, but I know that Harvey is happy there."

    Being without Harvey has made Katie - who also has Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, with third spouse Kieran Hayler - realise just how much he used to rely on her.

    She said: "The first few weeks I absolutely hated it. But now, I’ve come to terms with it and it’s made me realise how much I do for him. I do step back and think to myself, “How did I actually even do it all on my own for all those years?”

    "Now he’s at college, he has three carers with him. I don’t know how I did it, but I did. As his mum I just got on with it."
