KATIE Price has revealed her 18-year-old son Harvey is going to be a train announcer after impressing fans with his rail know-how.
The 42-year-old star’s fans launched a Twitter campaign for the teen to land the Network Rail gig after watching moving BBC documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me earlier this week.
And now the mother-of-five has revealed that the online petition was a success as she shared an Instagram post from The Royal Mencap Society – a leading charity that supports people with learning disabilities.
The Instagram story included a clip of Harvey and Katie from the documentary, writing: “Incredible news!
“Harvey is going to be a train announcer for @NetworkRail”.
Katie shared the post to her own social media page but did not add any extra comments.
Network Rail also confirmed the offer on Instagram, sharing a screenshot of a news article about Harvey being offered the role.
Harvey needs 24/7 care after he was born with a series of disabilities, including ADHD, autism, genetic condition Prader-Willi Syndrome and septo-optic dysplasia, which causes blindness.
He and Katie starred in a BBC documentary that followed their research into him going to a residential college later this year so that he can learn to have a more independent life.
During the hour-long show, viewers were left emotional as Harvey and his pal Zach discussed their love of trains at London’s Waterloo station before they made their own train announcements.
Another scene showed Harvey overcome with emotion as he visited his local train station – a common day out for the teen and his mum.
In light of the moving documentary, fans rallied behind Harvey’s love of locomotives and targeted British train companies on social media, campaigning for him to voice a pre-recorded train announcement.
