Katie Price’s son Harvey is attempting to enter the Guinness Book of World Records with the longest ever drawing of a train.

The 21-year-old rail enthusiast is taking on the challenge to raise awareness for charity Mencap's Learning Disability Week and along with ten friends from his residential college who all have learning disabilities aims to draw a 20m long, 1m high picture of a train.

Proud mother Katie, 45, shared on Instagram: "So proud of @officialmrharveyprice who will begin his own @guinnessworldrecords attempt for @mencap Learning Disability Week.

"Harvey and the team will be taking on the record for the world's longest train drawing! They'll aim to complete the drawing in one month!

"Go Harvey!!!"

Harvey added: "Me and my team will be attempting to draw the worlds longest train! I'm so excited!!"

The reality TV star is taking part in the Mencap Myth Buster campaign, demonstrating what is achievable in spite of living with learning disabilities.

Harvey - who has Prader-Willi syndrome, partial blindness and severe autism - revealed his trainspotting hobby in BBC documentary Katie Price: Harvey & Me.

As a result Network Rail offered to let him work as a station announcement maker for a day.

And in November 2022 Harvey was travelling home from a hospital appointment in London on board the Gatwick Express when he was given the chance to tell passengers where the train would be stopping.

Harvey is even in line to star in his very own series about trains.

Katie revealed: "The BBC have offered Harvey and his friend Zack an eight-part series on trains and automobiles.

"There will be some gorgeous trains like the Bluebell Railway.

"I am not interested in bloody trains. Me and Jeanette [Zack’s mother] will be sitting there having our tea and sandwiches saying, ‘What are we bloody doing here on a train station?’ But, as long as they are happy, that’s what matters.”
