Kate Price admits her youngest son hasn't been to school for nine months

Katie Price says her youngest son hasn't been to school in nine months. Jett is one of Price's five children, alongside Harvey, 21, Junior, 18, Princess, 16, and Bunny, eight.

Harvey's father is former footballer Dwight Yorke, while Junior and Jett are shared with ex-husband Peter Andre. Jett, aged nine, and Bunny are shared with Kieran Hayler.

Price's children often feature in her social media posts and during her TV appearances. She also often updates fans via social media, doing Q&A sessions. During a recent TikTok live Q&A with fans, Katie gave an update on her youngest son - revealing he has been out of school for nine months.

She explained: "Jett is good. He hasn't been to school for nine months, so he has home-schooling at the moment."

Katie is one of a number of celebrities who have decided to home-school their own children. Loose Women star Stacey Solomon has been a vocal advocate of the practice, saying that the alternative form of teaching has been beneficial for her two eldest sons, Zachary and Leighton, reports the Mirror. When both boys reached secondary school age, they joined mainstream school.

Stacey shared via Instagram at the time: "I've had the most amazing two years with you. Home education has been all that I imagined and so much more. It wasn’t always easy but it was always rewarding."

Meanwhile, Katie Price recently shared that she was diagnosed with ADHD, which had affected her own learning abilities. Opening up about her diagnosis after her terminally ill mother Amy revealed the news to the public, Katie told OK! Magazine that she feels she is learning how to listen now that she is at the age of 45.

She said: "I've tried to educate my mum, but my brain is wired differently to other people. I hate labels, but now my mum and I have both spoken to doctors and she has realised why I’ve done things in the past, why I act the way I do, why I do things, why I am the way I am."

She went on to add: "It's not because I don’t listen and take it on board, there's just something in me. I've got better now, I've learnt with therapy to hold back, to listen, and think of what other people are saying – maybe they’re right, maybe they're wrong, but I think of the consequences. It didn't exist in my head, a consequence, what could go wrong, so, I've learned. It’s taken me 45 years, but I'm still here."
