Katie Price’s Harvey back in hospital after mirror accident

Katie Price’s son Harvey was back in hospital last night after suffering a second accident in less than six months.

Partially-sighted Harvey, who turned five at the weekend, is thought to have fallen into a mirror at the family’s Surrey home and badly cut his face. His nanny Becky was also cut when she rushed over to help Harvey.

The boy was rushed to nearby East Surrey hospital but is now believed to have been transferred to St George’s Hospital in London. Doctors were worried that glass was embedded in the boy’s wounds and Katie, aka glamour model Jordan, and husband Peter Andre waited for three hours at the hospital for Harvey to have a scan.

This latest accident comes just weeks after Peter was diagnosed as suffering from viral meningitis and five months after Harvey spent a week a specialist burns unit due to badly scalding his legs.

Katie’s spokesperson confirmed yesterday’s accident saying: “She is in hospital with Harvey and is devastated. All she seems to do is spend time in hospital. It is unclear how long he will be there.”

Katie is due to give birth to her third child in the next few weeks: Harvey is her eldest son from her relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke.

The onlooker added: “Kylie was having a fantastic time, chatting to everyone and drinking champagne. But no one could believe it when she pulled up her dress and started gyrating all the way down to the ground - she is amazingly flexible.”

Angelina Jolie still hardly eating after mother’s death, says brother

Angelina Jolie’s brother James Haven has spoken out again about his worry for Angelina following their mother’s death in January.

In March, James revealed that Angelina was hardly eating since Marcheline Bertrand died at the start of the year and he’s added now that she’s still struggling with the loss.

He told Closer magazine recently: “[Angelina] exhausts herself and at the moment she has a very low resistance level because she misses our mother so much and just longs for her all the time.”

He added that she finds it especially difficult to eat large amounts of luxury food after meeting people on the verge of famine during her travels as a UN ambassador: “Angie visited Ethiopia and it changed her life. It’s hard for her to go home to a very expensive restaurant and order freely.”
