Junior Andre reveals ‘strong bond’ with Harvey as he opens up on his brother’s weight loss journey


KATIE Price’s son Junior has opened up about the “strong bond” he shares with big brother Harvey as he supports him on his weight loss journey.

Junior admitted his brother’s fitness journey has been “difficult”, but said he and mum Katie, 44, usually know how to control his “outbursts” when he kicks off.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun at the KISS FM Haunted House party, Junior said: “Harvey is amazing, he is loving life, and everyone loves him.

“He’s the best, the bond I have with him, I don’t think people realise how close we are.

“I see him all the time and he always makes us laugh, he’s been through a lot and we’re all proud of him.

“How I’m with him and he’s with me, our bond is unbreakable.”

Harvey – who suffers from Prader Willi Syndrome, blindness and autism – reached 29st last year.

Katie gave fans an update on Harvey’s weight loss journey last month as she called his weight “life threatening”.

“He’s got Prader Willi syndrome, which means he can never get full and is always hungry,” Junior said.

“It’s hard because he’ll have outbursts if he doesn’t have food and he’ll kick off.

“But it’s about the people around him that can control him, me and my mum can support him.

“He is doing amazing and I’m so proud him.”

He opened up about his close bond with sister Princess, 15, who they share the same parents, Katie and dad Peter Andre, 49.

The talented musician said: “With all of my brothers and sisters, I love them, I can’t put it into words how much I love them.

“I’m their big brother and Harvey’s little brother, but his big brother at the same time.

“I love them all so much and I’ll look after them as much as I can.

“They are very supportive of me doing my music and I’ll always support them, I’m very thankful.”

Katie had previously opened up about the dangers of her son Harvey, 20, putting on more weight as he swelled to 28 stone.

However, the star has since revealed he has lost two stone through a careful diet plan – which still involves occasional “treats”.

During an honest chat, Junior opened up about his music career and admitted he does not feel the “pressure” to follow in his dad’s footsteps after launching his music career.

He told us: “It’s going amazing, it’s difficult to put into words how it feels to be doing what I’m doing, especially at such a young age.

“The support I’m getting from everyone is amazing, I couldn’t be happier.

“I think my dad was great in his own way and I’m going to be great in my own way.”

Junior is following in his dad’s footsteps by carving out a career in the music industry.

The youngster has proved he’s a chip off the old block when it comes to making hits, after he released his latest track Slide in the summer.

But Junior explained that he doesn’t want to be seen as Katie Price and Peter Andre’s son in the music industry, and said he wants to taken “seriously”.

“I think the reaction has been amazing, better than I could ever dreamed of. I don’t think people expected me to come out with something serious, but I’m taking it seriously, this is what I want to do,” he continued.

“I think the fans realise; I’ve had a really good reaction.

“I’ll let the music do the talking, this is just the start.

“My mum and family are all supportive, they play it in the house and sing along to it, we’ll be in the car, and we’ll put it on and they’ll just start singing.

“I’m lucky, growing up with my parents, I’ve always been able to experience that side of it.

“So, I don’t feel the pressure, obviously there are a lot of eyes watching, I’m about good energy and love and I’m going to have good people round me.”

Junior revealed he is also happily single, he added: “I’m focused on work and I’m a single man.

“No lucky woman has walked into my life yet. I’m a good boy.”
