KATIE Price wants to help set up a theme park for disabled children and adults.

The former glamour model has a 12-year-old disabled son, Harvey, who was born with a limited pituitary gland and suffers from a range of disorders, including Autism.

Katie claims current attractions don't have enough for people with physical limitations and learning difficulties to enjoy and she wants to change that with a park designed specifically for them.

Speaking on her new FUBAR Radio show which aired today (24.06.14), she said: "In the summer holidays, when you've got kids that are able to do things, there are loads of things, Alton Towers, Thorpe Park or Chessington [World of Adventures].

"What is there for disabled kids or adults? There are no rides for wheelchairs, there is disabled access but I wish they would tag on some kind of theme-park on the side that stimulates their brain."

Katie, 36, added: "[It could] have rides that wheelchairs could go on, so they wouldn't be left out. It would be something I would love to do. I have looked into and obviously it's millions and millions but if the government could get behind it, I would so love to do that, set up a theme park for families with able and unable children to go and enjoy the day."

The brunette beauty is pregnant with her fifth child and her second with estranged husband Kieran Hayler, and as well as Harvey - whose dad is her ex-boyfriend Dwight Yorke - she also has Junior, eight and Princess Tiaamii, six, from her marriage to Peter Andre, and 10-month-old son Jett with Kieran.
