Katie Price has revealed that an internet troll sent her an edited video showing himself 'appearing to have sex' with her 14-year-old disabled son Harvey.

Appearing on Channel 5 news yesterday (April 11), Loose Women presenter Katie talked about the petition she's launched to tackle online bullying.

Opening up about her son Harvey being a victim of trolling, Katie said: "I've had so many bad comments but I won't talk about them because it's so uncomfortable.

"One of them made a video of Harvey and made it look like he was having sex with him. The video was shocking – I sent it to the police so they arrested him.

"But they ended up letting him go because there is nothing in place... for an online troll there is nothing in place to punish them."

Katie is petitioning the Government to make online bullying a criminal offence, and she's already reached 200,000 signatures.

Talking to Channel 5 about her petition, Katie said: "It won't be hard to get through those Commons when I'm suited and booted and I'm on a mission.

"This isn't about me, I want to save a life, I want to help people. It's not just about my son, it's about everyone out there.

"It's got to stop, it's not clever and it's not funny. The social media sites need to tighten up too," she added. "After I've conquered this in the UK I'm going to take over the world."

Back in February, a teenager was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated abuse towards Harvey on Twitter.

It comes shortly after a 30-year-old man apologised to Katie over abusive tweets sent to her about Harvey.

She previously enlisted her other son Junior – who made touching speeches about his brother on Katie's Instagram – in an attempt to get the troll to come forward.
