Katie's legal backlash at comedian's "vile" jokes about her disabled son

Katie Price has asked her lawyers to write to Channel 4 after comedian Frankie Boyle made a "vile" joke about her disabled son.

Price said she was seeking legal advice after Boyle made comments about her son Harvey, who suffers from septo-optic dysplasia and autism, on his show Tramadol Nights.

In a statement on her website, she said: "Harvey Price is a little miracle. Every day he overcomes so many difficulties with the help of family and medical experts and has so many tiny battles to win due to his medical problems.

"If Mr Boyle had a 10th of his courage and decency he would know that to suggest, let alone think funny, that Harvey may sexually attack me is vile and deeply unfair.

"To bully this unbelievably brave child is despicable, to broadcast it on television is to show a complete and utter lack of judgment."

A message at the beginning of Boyle's programme, which was broadcast on Tuesday night, warned viewers the show contained "very strong language and uncompromising adult content".

A Channel 4 spokeswoman said: "Frankie Boyle is one of the highest profile comedians in the UK, he's well known for his controversial humour and the programme carried appropriate warnings as to the nature of the material."
