The Loose Women panel had to apologise after Katie Price's disabled son Harvey swore during a live interview.

Price, who is a panellist on the ITV show, brought her eldest son Harvey onto the programme as part of a discussion about internet trolls. The 13-year-old, who is visually impaired, autistic and suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, has frequently been the target of online abuse.

He used the c-word while Price spoke to him about people who had targeted him.

Price (37), asked him: "If someone says something horrible to Harvey, what does Harvey say?"

The teen responded: "Hello, c***."

 

Panellist Andrea McClean immediately said: "We apologise for that. But this is one of the reasons that we wanted to do this live."

She and Price had explained at the start of the interview that they had been determined to show the chat with Harvey live, rather than arrange a pre-recording.
