Katie Price has splashed out on an exercise bike worth a whopping £2,000 in a bid to help her son Harvey shed over ten stone.

The proud mum-of-five, 42, is doing all that she can to help her 18-year-old son get healthier after he recently tipped the scales at 27-stone.

Harvey, who has Prader-Willi Syndrome, an underactive thyroid, diabetes, is autistic and partially blind - has struggled with his size due to his health conditions.

Now, Katie has splashed the cash on a state-of-the-art exercise bike to help get her eldest son down to a much healthier weight.

In pictures obtained by the Sun, the mother-son duo can be seen trying out the bikes for the first time as Harvey gets to grips with the equipment.

Lifting the lid on his first experience on the bike, a source told the publication: “Harvey needs to lose around ten stone to get back to a good weight for him and he seems to enjoy going on the bike so she snapped a couple up.”

The insider also revealed that Katie is hoping to get in better shape too, so the pair will work towards their weight loss goals over the next couple of months together.

“Katie wants to get in shape too, so she's hoping they can work out together ahead of him starting college in September,” the source told.

Reality TV star Katie has been incredibly vocal about her fears for her son as his weight continues to creep up the scales.

Harvey recently moved across the street from his mum as he lives independently for the first time, and in a recent YouTube video, Katie explained that she had installed cameras in every room of the new place in case of emergencies.

The proud mum also ensured that the cupboards in Harvey’s home weren’t constantly stacked because if they were, he wouldn’t be able to control his appetite.

“I think he's actually lost weight because when he's in the actual household, I've said before, he's quite disruptive in the night because he goes in the cupboards and eats the food - that's his Prader-Willi Syndrome.

"But in that house, I don't put anything in the cupboards that he can get, so he can't have a snack in the night because there's nothing there for him to snack on! I think he has lost weight."
