Katie Price transforming garage into gym to help 29st Harvey lose weight
Katie Price and her boyfriend Carl Woods have transformed his garage into a gym in order to help her son Harvey shed the pounds.
Katie's eldest child weighs 29 stone, and the former glamour model has expressed her concern over his obesity.
Harvey, 18, has Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes sufferers to have an excessive appetite.
Katie, 42, has recently moved in with her boyfriend Carl and he has now revealed that they have kitted his garage out with fitness equipment for the teenager to use.
"Kate and I have kitted my garage out with fitness equipment, and it's all for Harvey," Carl said.
"He likes to do things with me and Kate. If he sees us doing that, I think he'll do that with us."
He continued to The Sun: "You'll never understand it until you see it. Kate is all over Harvey about his diet and exercise. But if he doesn't want to eat you cannot make him.
"She's got a hard job. Believe me, every day she's on at him.

"She won't let him butter her up for more food, but with me he'll tell me he loves me and ask me for a bowl of extra pasta. He's very clever.
"He's not worked out with me yet that I'm on to him as well. He's very astute," Carl added.
"It's not an easy life for Kate at all. She would much rather get him to eat healthy but he doesn't want to do it. Do you starve the boy? And cause him problems in that way?"
Harvey's extreme cravings have led to stark warnings from doctors who have warned he is at risk of a heart attack.
Over the weekend, Katie shared a snap of Harvey in a pair of new pyjamas and revealed that they are size 7XL.
Mum-of-five Kate previously told The Sun: "He'll need to lose weight or he'll end up dead. I don’t want to lose him."
She's also concerned about Harvey catching coronavirus, after he spent 10 days in hospital earlier this year.
"My mum and Harvey are very high risk. You can hear him breathing," she said.
"Because he is a big boy you can just hear him breathing. Even if he gets a cold that is bad.
"If he gets Covid it would probably finish him off, that is not a joke, so we are really, really, really careful."
