Katie Price has reached out to ex Dwight Yorke in a heartbreaking message as she supports Children In Need.

The mother-of-five revealed that herself and her eldest son Harvey, who she shares with Dwight, will be supporting the charitable cause before making an emotional plea to the 47-year-old former footballer.

The Loose Women panelist shared an adorable image of 16-year-old Harvey as a baby cuddled by his dad.

I am so proud of the person he has become. For any of my followers bringing a child up with complex needs I admire you its not easy but it is totally worth it, she wrote on Instagram.

To who has never been there for him just remember its never too late. The door is always open…..

After the invitation for a family reunion, Katie posted another cute image of young Harvey, which she captioned: So innocent. I will be donating and supporting tonight for #BBCCIN #childreninneed are you?

Later on, the Celebrity Big Brother winner shared a picture that Harvey drew of Pudsey Bear ahead of the Children In Need fundraiser being aired on BBC on Friday night.

She beamed: Harvey is so clever. How cute he just made this for me. We are supporting children in need. Are you?

Katies social media activity about her son saw her page flooded with supportive messages from social media users who praised the television personality for the good job she has done with him.

Katie and Dwight had split by the time she gave birth to her first child Harvey in May 2002 and the model has since criticised the former Manchester United for his treatment of their son.

Yorke initially denied he was the father after Katie became pregnant, forcing her to undergo DNA tests to confirm he was in fact the father.

The mother-of-five explained: Id explained Harveys condition to Dwight many times, but he refused to understand it and kept going on about him being fat.

Harveys Prader-Willi Syndrome means he suffers from a chronic feeling of hunger, which means he is prone to putting on weight.
