Katie Price has had some real struggles to overcome in 2018. She found out her husband Kieran Hayler was cheating again, faced the threat of bankruptcy, spent time in rehab, broke her driving ban, her mum Amy is bravely battling a terminal illness and things have been shaky with on again off again partner Kris Boyson.

However on Friday night whilst watching Children In Need, Katie decided to share some positivity.

She told her followers on Instagram how proud she was of her son Harvey and praised followers who are bringing up a child with complex needs. However she also took the opportunity to reach out to Harvey's absent father, ex-footballer Dwight Yorke, and give him a chance to put things right.

Katie posted a photo of Dwight and Harvey cuddled up with the caption, "Harv as a baby just found these pics. I am so proud of the person he has become. For any of my followers bringing a child up with complex needs I admire you ❤️ its not easy but it is totally worth it. To who has never been there for him just remember it’s never too late. The door is always open.....".

She then followed the sweet snap with another photo of Harvey and confirmed she would be supporting Children In Need and asked her followers if they would be.

When she took 17-year-old Gareth Gate's virginity

Katie was pregnant with Harvey at the time, and Gareth was on Pop Idol. Katie said of the 'three-second' event: "[He was] shaking so much his trousers practically fell off his legs."

In the past Katie has slammed Dwight for not being there for his child. Back in 2016 Katie revealed how Dwight had reacted badly to his son's disabilities. Katie revealed in her book 'Reborn', "The last time Harvey’s biological father Dwight Yorke saw him, which was around eight years ago, the first thing he asked was why Harvey was so big."

She explained Dwight questioned her on Harvey's size. She wrote, "Why was I overfeeding him? I’d explained Harvey’s condition to Dwight many times, but he refused to understand it and kept going on about him being fat."

"I have always said that if Dwight could see what a courageous and talented boy Harvey is then he would enjoy being with him so much.

"For me, it’s impossible to understand why a little boy’s dad wouldn’t make contact after being sent snaps of his son opening his birthday presents, learning swing ball, or giggling his head off a quad bike.

"They are such precious moments. Any man can fill a pram but it takes a real man to be a father."

Former professional footballer, Dwight Yorke, and Katie Price were in a relationship between 2001 and 2002. Harvey was born on May 22nd 2002 and is Dwight's only child, however he hasn't seen his son in over a decade.

Katie has four other children. She has a son Junior Savva Andreas Andre and daughter Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther Andre with Peter Andre. Katie also has a son Jett Riviera Hayler and daughter Bunny Hayler with Kieran Hayler. She recently posted a picture of all her children together to promote her show 'Katie Price: My Crazy Life'.
