Harvey was rushed to hospital by ambulance with breathing problems after his temperature shot up  to a dangerously high 42 degrees.
A close friend said: “Katie has been preparing herself for this moment all his life and she’s been told Harvey is in a perilous condition.
"She’s been here before, but this time it’s far more serious.
“She’s trying to be tough and strong, but inside she’s falling apart and feels helpless.”
The model and TV star was “devastated” that she would not be allowed to stay overnight next to Harvey in ICU due to new visiting restrictions triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The close friend added: “Doctors need to get his temperature down. He’s in a really bad way.”
Harvey has the rare genetic condition Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause weight gain and behavioural problems, and is also partially blind and on the autistic spectrum.
He sat in a wheelchair inside the ambulance that took him to Epsom Hospital, Surrey.

On Instagram last night, Katie told followers: “I can confirm Harvey is in intensive care and in the best hands and would like to thank the ambulance services and the hospital staff for the quick response and making him stable.”
It is the second time Harvey has needed hospital treatment in two weeks after he fell ill at sister Princess’ 13th birthday at her Surrey home.
Harvey experienced chest pains that felt like “pins and needles” and  was later sent home after being diagnosed with a chest infection.
Speaking to The Sun earlier this month Katie revealed doctors told her Harvey is at serious risk of dying from a heart attack if he does not lose weight.
And, in a brutally stark statement, the fearful mum said she hoped Harvey would die before she does, because he simply will not be able to cope without her.
Katie said: “When Harvey went into hospital, I feared the worst. I always do.
“The doctors have told me he’s at high risk of having a heart attack. He’s 27½st, wears 5XL clothes and he gets out of breath walking up the stairs. So of course I panicked.”
As well as Harvey, whose dad is former Manchester United footballer Dwight Yorke, Katie has Princess and Junior, 15, with ex-husband Peter Andre.
She also has two children - Jett, six, and Bunny, five — with Kieran Hayler.Katie and Dwight dated in 2001 but split shortly before Harvey was born.
A spokeswoman for Katie said: “Katie went with Harvey earlier this evening by emergency ambulance to hospital. Harvey’s symptoms are serious.
“Katie has total faith in the outstanding team whose care Harvey is now under.”

Death fears at 27st

By Joe Duggan
KATIE admitted this month she feared 27-stone Harvey could die of a heart attack if he does not lose weight.
The teenager has an excess appetite caused by his genetic condition.
After his hospital trip with chest pains last month, Katie said: “I can’t see him living past 50 unless we sort out his weight and breathing.”
Harvey was born with the brain disorder septo-optic dysplasia which left him partially sighted.Katie found out when he was around six weeks old.
He also has ADHD and an underactive thyroid.
In 2018, when he was 16, Katie admitted she feared Harvey could die from diabetes if he did not get fit.
She praised her then boyfriend Kris Boyson for working out with him after his weight topped 22 stone.
Harvey now lives in residential care five days a week.
Katie has said his conditions “aren’t life-limiting as long as he takes medication and we watch his weight”.
