Peter Andre has praised his ex Katie Price's son Harvey following his appearance in documentary Harvey and Me this week.

Harvey, 18, was born with Septo-optic dysplasia, a rare genetic disorder affecting his eyesight, as well as autism and Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause learning difficulties and behavioural problems.

Media Relations Manager Tracey O’Brien told Metro.co.uk: "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."
Harvey has now seemingly accepted the offer, with Katie writing on Instagram: "Incredible news!
"Harvey is going to be a train announcer for @NetworkRail".
After the documentary aired, Katie thanked the filmmakers and viewing public for their support, tweeting: "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.
"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."
