TV

Katie Price has dabbled in a mixture of television projects over the years, from fly-on-the-wall reality shows to the Loose Women panel but now she is going it alone.

The former model, 42, is believed to be teaming up with long-term friend and autism rights campaigner, Anne Kennedy OBE, who worked alongside Katie to ensure that her eldest son, Harvey Price, 18, found the best possible college.

It’s believed that Katie will now turn her attention to presenting an online chat show with all guests being on the autism spectrum.

Katie won the hearts of the nation over last month when she featured in a BBC One documentary titled Katie Price: Harvey and Me.

During the emotional episode, Katie detailed her life bringing up Harvey, who lives with autism, Prader-Willi Syndrome and partial blindness.

Speaking to The Sun, Anna revealed: “We’ve been chatting about more projects because now she’s got the taste for wanting to do more to help raise awareness of autism acceptance and disability.

“We’re talking about doing something on her YouTube channel going live possibly as soon as next month.

“There’s going to be myself, there’s going to be Katie and we’re going to invite an autistic adult on every month, see how it goes.”

Anna went on to add that she has been told by pals it’s evident that Katie is comfortable around her.

Last week, mum-of-five Katie pleaded with her social media followers to sign an online petition that had been started by Anna, who is a mum to two autistic sons.

Former Page 3 model Katie shared a screenshot of the petition, encouraging fans to “Swipe Up” to access the site along with a gif reading “Make A Difference”.

The petition titled: “Who will look after my sons when I am no longer around?” goes on to say: “Parents all need peace of mind that practical and emotional support will be available when they are not there to help.

“We are calling upon the government to ensure social care is adequately funded to meet the ever-growing needs especially in these uncertain times of families and disabled adults.”

This wouldn’t be the first time that the two mothers have worked together, as Harvey has fronted Anna’s Give Us A Break! antibullying campaign and also participated in Autism’s Got Talent back in 2019, performing a stunning rendition of the hit song When The Saints Go Marching In by Bruce Springsteen.
