KATIE Price’s pals are concerned about who will look after her son Harvey if she ends up behind bars.
The troubled 43-year-old is facing up to five years in jail after she allegedly sent a "gutter s**g" text to ex Kieran Hayler about his fiancée.
Her eldest son, 19, – who suffers from disabilities including Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism and blindness -currently lives in a residential home but has an incredibly strong bond with his mum.
The news of her latest arrest has sent shockwaves through her nearest and dearest and they are now fearful of the consequences when it comes to her kids.
A source said: “Katie and Harvey are so close and it would break his heart not having her around.
“He would really struggle to understand why she couldn’t visit him.
“It’s hard enough when they don’t see each other for weeks, let alone five years.

“Harvey needs his mum and we're all worrying about who will be there for him.”
Harvey's father is Dwight Yorke, who has played no part in his life.
Harvey has siblings Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, whose dad is Katie's first husband Peter Andre, and Bunny, seven, and Jett, six, who Katie shares with ex Kieran Hayler.
Katie previously admitted she hoped Harvey dies before because he would find it so hard without her.
Being devastatingly honest, she shared: "The reason I say it is because he won't cope without me.
"He'd be so heartbroken because I know everything about him – how he likes to be tickled, how I finish his sentences, I play the mum and dad role.
"And you can't beat your mum's cuddles, no one can cuddle him at school,
I don't think anyone else could care for him like me and he wouldn't understand why I wasn't there. I don't want him to die, don't get me wrong, but other mums would understand who were in my situation.
"It's because I care about Harvey. Of course, he has siblings who would make sure he was OK. It's just because I have that much of a bond with him, it would just break his heart."
Katie spent 12 hours in police custody after being arrested at her mucky mansion on Friday night.
She allegedly sent an abusive text to Kieran aimed at his fiancee Michelle Penticost – potentially breaching a court-imposed ban.
Close sources told The Sun the text allegedly branded Michelle a “c***ing w***e piece of s***” and a “gutter s**g.”
The ex-glamour model could face a maximum sentence of five years in prison if charged and convicted.
Katie is already on a 16-week suspended sentence for drink driving after she flipped her BMW in a horror smash in September.
