According to reports, he was taken to hospital earlier after experiencing breathing difficulties – and was thought to be at risk of organ failure.

A source later told the newspaper that Katie was ‘preparing for the worst.’
This is not the first health scare the 18-year-old has had in recent weeks. He was rushed to hospital at the beginning of July after experiencing ‘pins and needles’ chest pain at his sister Princess’ 13th birthday.
The teen reportedly told his mum that the pain was so bad, it felt as though there were needles being pushed into his chest.
After he was picked up by an ambulance and taken to hospital, doctors ran a number of tests and they found that there was nothing serious to worry about.
According to medics, Harvey could have possibly pulled a muscle in his sleep which brought about the uncomfortable pain.
Harvey has a number of health conditions including Prader-Willi Syndrome and partial blindness.
He is also on the autistic spectrum.
