Katie Price attracted criticism recently over a video in which she was seen lying in bed next to her son Harvey Price, who could be heard snoring in the background.

The reality TV star, 44, shared the footage with her followers on Instagram and posted a similar clip - in which Harvey, 20, appeared to get woken up - on TikTok the same day.

The former post sees Katie posing before showing her eldest son asleep in the same bed. She wrote: "[He's] home and getting in my bed like a baby wanting cuddles".

Harvey - who is partially blind, on the autism spectrum and has conditions including Prader-Willi syndrome - is heard snoring as he lies next to the mother-of-five.

The post on TikTok instead saw Katie tell viewers: "Look at what a cheeky sh** he is!" She then pans to show him snoring, before calling him and prompting a response.

Asked why he's in her bed, Harvey - who lives in a residential college but is understood to have been staying at her home for Christmas - appears to say they are "cuddling".

Katie responds: "You snore. [...] I want you out of my bed." The former glamour model seems to tease over it, with Harvey saying: "Oh crap, here we go". He also apologised.

The clips were uploaded last month but have continued to attract reaction in recent days. The first video divided viewers, with some criticising Katie, whilst others have supported her.

Some viewers took issue with the mother and son sharing a bed, whilst others were critical of Katie having posted the clip, suggesting it was an invasion of Harvey's privacy.

"Totally inappropriate at his age regardless of his needs," wrote one viewer in the comments section on Instagram. Another said: "He's a man. He needs to be in his bed".

Others suggested that it was an invasion of his privacy, with one writing in their response to Katie: "Respect your son's privacy". Another commented: "That's hugely invasive".

One viewer commented in the comments section of the recent post: "Wholly inappropriate. That poor young man. Leave him in peace. Always exploiting for coin".

One response, posted earlier this week, described it as "creepy". Another, responding to someone who said it didn't "seem right," commented: "I agree [it] isn't right".

A number of fans have however supported Katie, saying it was normal. "Never too old for cuddles," wrote one follower. Another said: "They never stop being our babies."

"Honestly the best sleep ever is when your babies are next to you," said a third. Another person wrote: "Nothing like cuddles with mummy. Don't matter how old they are."

"Those people saying this is inappropriate etc are so privileged to be unable to relate to what is required to care for a child or adult with complex needs," said one viewer.

Fans have defended her in recent days too. One wrote: "That is her baby. There is nothing inappropriate about it." Among those reacted positively was a fan who wrote: "Bless him".

There was a similarly reaction on TikTok, with one viewer saying a few days ago: "Hope my boy still gives me cuddles at Harvey age". Another said: "Bless him can't beat mom cuddles".

"Your bond is amazing," said a third viewer this week. Another wrote on the platform: "My little boy is 5 with special needs and I hope to have the relationship you do".

Katie appeared to brush off the criticism last week, sharing a video in which both her and Harvey said that they had "slept really well". Katie said she'd slept well because he hadn't woken her up.
