Katie Price: Harvey and Me viewers' shock as disabled teen furiously bangs his head against door during anxiety attack

KATIE Price fans watched the shocking moment her disabled son Harvey furiously banged his head during an anxiety attack shown in their new documentary.

Katie Price: Harvey and Me aired on BBC One tonight following the star's testing journey raising the 18-year-old who has ADHD, autism, genetic condition ­Prader-Willi Syndrome and septo-optic dysplasia which causes blindness and who needs 24/7 care.

The mum-of-five was visiting care homes with Harvey when he was spooked by a loud noise.

The panicked teen suddenly threw his head back and smashed it against the door.

He started crying and yelling before Katie swooped in to calm the teenager down.

Viewers said the moment was hard to watch, but praised Katie for her bravery in opening up about caring for a child with complex needs.

"People can definitely have their perceptions on @KatiePrice , but she goes through so much with Harvey," said one.

"My heart goes out to them. The scene with him banging his head was heartbreaking."

Another added: "Breaking my heart at Katie price and Harvey."

Someone else said: "One thing you can say is she is an unbelievable mother and the love and patience she has for Harvey is humbling. Loving @bbcharveyandme."

Katie has previously revealed Harvey will smash up her house and leave holes in the wall if she denies him food.

The 42-year-old "It’s a cruel and horrible illness where he feels hungry all the time — and if he doesn’t get food he gets angry. It’s hard work.

"He'll smash things up if you say no. I’ve had to re-plaster my walls because he’ll bash holes in them with his head.

"He knows what nice things taste of. I’ll give him sweet potato chips instead of real fries but he knows the difference.

"It's not what he eats in the day, it’s what he eats when I don’t see him. I’ve tried hiding food but he’ll find it.

"You can’t leave food or leftovers on the side or he’ll eat it, and he’s really quick too.

"He even eats in his sleep. He'll walk downstairs and eat whatever he can find. We've even found him rummaging through friends' bags for food."
