Katie Price's Son Harvey Given Chance To Make Rail Station Announcements After Calls From Fans
Network Rail has made a touching gesture to Katie Price's son Harvey Price, by offering the teenager the chance to make an announcement at one of their stations.
The offer came after the rail company watched Katie and Harvey's recent documentary, Katie Price: Harvey and Me which aired earlier this week on BBC.
In the doc, Harvey expressed his love of trains and was seen mimicking the announcements on a number of occasions.
At one point, Harvey could be seen taking pictures of passing trains, while in another he impersonated a train operator.
"May I have your attention please?" Harvey said. "This train is formed of 12 coaches. Platform four for the 11.34 South Western Railway service to Guildford."
Media Relations Manager, Tracey O'Brien, told Metro: "We, Network Rail, would be happy to arrange for Harvey to make an announcement at one of the Network Rail managed stations when it is safe to do so."
The offer comes after hundreds of fans took to Twitter to urge rail bosses to let Harvey make an announcement.
One person wrote on Twitter: "This is my official petition for Harvey Price to become the announcer on the train lines."
While another said: "Petition for Harvey Price to record all of the TFL train announcements."
And one viewer added: "@TfL needs to give Harvey Price some work experience maybe even a job. He is obsessed with trains and would be perfect."

One even suggested South Western name a train after the 18-year-old. "@KatiePrice come on Southern Western Rail name a train Harvey Price for such a smashing young man," they wrote.

Meanwhile, Katie took to Twitter herself earlier this week to thank fans for their support following the show, which highlighted the ups and downs of raising a child with severe disabilities.
In the doc, viewers hear how Harvey was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder known as septo-optic dysplasia, which brought with it partial blindness, autism, Prader-Willi syndrome and learning and behavioural difficulties.
"I wanted to say thank you so much to @bbcone, @Minnow_Films and the general public for all your support in the lead up to #HarveyandMe and the incredible feedback tonight," said Katie.
"This really has been such an amazing journey for Harvey and myself, and I want to continue the conversation surrounding the difficulties that parents of children with complex needs face, and help parents going through a similar situation. Thank you all so much x."
You can catch the doc over on BBC iPlayer now.
