"He's so obese, he weighed 28.5 stone and he was weighed about a month and a half ago at Great Ormond Street. His BMI is high and that's why if he gets Covid it's really dangerous for him because if he does get it, because he has adrenaline crisis, it's his lungs," she said.

Detailing the different health struggles he's faced due to his weight gain, she continued: "He's got sleep apnoea now because he's so overweight and I don't think people realise how difficult it is.

"Even Carl [Woods] was like, when I was first with, 'You know, just don't give him food when he wants it and this and that,' and I said, 'It's not as easy as that.' He's seen it himself and said it's so difficult.

"Until you live and breathe with Harv, you will never understand. His obesity has got all these medical stuff and he wakes up in the night."

Katie, who recently asked fans for help about her son's weight, went on to talk about her son's behaviour when he becomes hungry and there is no food readily available for him.

She told The Sun Online: "We have to bolt lock the fridge and then sometimes he's pulled the fridge out to try and open the door. We have to hide food from him when he's gone to search for it.

"If I've got people who are staying the night, he'll go in their bags to look for sweets and things. If you've had a takeaway and you leave it on the side, you can't, because he'll wake up in the morning and eat all that you've left. That's how bad it is."

She ended by sharing her extreme worry over Harvey that he could have a heart attack if he doesn't lose weight soon as she said: "His weight will kill him. He will have a heart attack.

"Literally, he's on a high level of having a heart attack. He could die because he is so big. He walks up the stairs and he's in sweats.

"So I've had to get this gym equipment," she continued. "I'm going to start slow with Harvey. He's got to lose weight or he'll die, he will die. He's always been big but now it's ridiculous, his clothes are 7XL.

"I'm really really worried about his weight because he sweats and he's so out of breath, he snores because he's so overweight.

"The way I look at it now, every time I feed him or he wants something like that, I'm killing him. So although he's happy inside because he wants it [crisps], it's cruel for me to do it because it's killing him. It makes him put on weight."
