Katie Price's disabled son Harvey, seven, has been rushed to hospital with breathing difficulties.
The mother of three was "in pieces" after her son's health took a turn while she was on a nationwide book tour.
A source said: "Harvey had a massive temperature and couldn't keep any food down either.
"More worryingly, his breathing was also a huge concern and there was no option but to urgently seek medical advice."
After being taken to A&E at East Surrey Hospital in Redhill, Surrey, doctors informed Price that the boy would have to stay for 48 hours.
A source said: "The doctors weren't taking any chances. If he doesn't get any better, he might be there for a while. It could well be complications arising from potential swine flu but they don't know yet. He's a very poorly young man."
When Kate was told the news, she broke down in tears.
She is quoted in the Daily Mirror as telling a friend: "I have to be there for Harvey. He's my little angel and he needs his mummy."
A source said: "When it comes to Harvey's health, even little coughs and colds are treated very seriously. That is why Kate is deeply worried."
Harvey suffers from a septooptic dysplasia which means he is partially blind and requires constant care. His father is footballer Dwight Yorke.
A source close to Price's ex-husband Peter Andre said: "He is very worried and has gone to hospital because he wanted to be with Harvey as well."
