Katie Price says son Harvey is going to be a Network Rail train announcer after impressing fans with his rail know-how

KATIE Price has said that her 18-year-old son Harvey is going to be a Network Rail train announcer after impressing fans with his rail know-how.

The 42-year-old star's fans rallied together a campaign for the teen to land the gig after watching moving BBC documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me earlier this week.

And now the mother-of-five has revealed that the petition was a success as she shared an Instagram post from The Royal Mencap Society – a leading charity that supports people with learning disabilities.

The Instagram Story had shared a clip of Harvey and Katie from the documentary, writing: "Incredible news!

"Harvey is going to be a train announcer for @NetworkRail".

Katie shared the post to her own social media page, but did not add any extra comments.

Network Rail have also confirmed the offer on Instagram, sharing a screenshot of a news article about Harvey being offered the role.

Harvey needs 24/7 care after he was born with a series of disabilities, including ADHD, autism, genetic condition Prader-Willi Syndrome and septo-optic dysplasia, which causes blindness.

He and Katie starred in a BBC documentary that followed their research into him going to a residential college later this year so that he can learn to have a more independent life.

During the hour-long special, viewers were left emotional as Harvey and his pal Zach discussed their love of trains at London's Waterloo station before they made their own train announcements.

Another scene showed Harvey overcome with emotion as he visited his local train station – a common day out for the teen and his mum.

In light of the moving documentary, fans rallied behind Harvey's love of locomotives and targeted British train companies on social media, campaigning for him to voice a pre-recorded train announcement.

Harvey and Me also had viewers in tears, with many flocking to Twitter to heap praise on Katie for being such a devoted mother.

TV presenter Richard Madeley even called for the former glamour model to be on the New Year's Honours list for her services to motherhood.

He said: "We just watched the Katie Price BBC2 doco. That woman should be in the next New Year's Honours list for services to motherhood."

In the doc, Katie shared her heartbreak as she explained that Harvey will smash her house up due to his conditions, with the sound of closing doors one of his biggest triggers.

She also discussed her fears about Harvey being detained in a mental health facility, as well as her concern that he will not be able to cope when she dies.
