The media watchdog confirmed it had received complaints following the live incident
Loose Women has had a tough time lately, what with being forced off the air last week and panellist Nadia Sawalha being attacked for making a shocking parenting confession.
And now the show faces even more tough times after media watchdog Ofcom revealed they are investigating THAT infamous moment Katie Price‘s son Harvey turned the airwaves blue during a live interview.
The teen – who is visually impaired, autistic and suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome – joined his mum live on the ITV show to discuss online trolls last month.
At one point in the chat, Pricey asked Harvey: ‘If someone says something horrible to Harvey, what does Harvey say?’
The 14-year-old replied: ‘Hello, c***.’
Even though host Andrea McLean apologised several times for the swear word, Ofcom confirmed it had received 10 complaints following the episode on 17 May.
A spokesperson said: ‘Ofcom is investigating this programme which included the most offensive language before the watershed.’
Despite Harvey’s slip-up, Katie appeared to have no regrets after the episode and stressed that she wanted him to appear live and unedited despite previously discussing the option of a pre-recorded feature.
‘It’s important to see him live, to see what he’s like, not edited,’she said, before vowing to take her fight against the perpetrators even further.
’Something should be done. We’ve been doing lots of stuff behind the scenes and want people to be aware of the trolling.’
And most Loose Women viewers appeared to love seeing Harvey on the programme, with many praising the segment about Pricey’s fight against the trolls as ‘heart-warming’.
‘I’ve just fallen in love with Harvey a little,’ one Twitter user wrote. ‘@MissKatiePrice what a lovely young man you’ve raised #loosewomen #trollsshouldbeashamed’
Another added: ‘I cannot be the only one nearly reduced to tears, @MissKatiePrice and Harvey take a bow, what an amazing young man #loosewomen’
