Jordan - Price Officially Complains Over Disabled Son Jokes

British model-turned-reality TV star KATIE PRICE has lodged an official complaint with U.K. broadcasting watchdog Ofcom after a comedian cracked jokes about her disabled son and refused to apologise.
Scottish funnyman Frankie Boyle made several "offensive and hurtful" gags about eight-year-old Harvey during his Tramadol Nights show on U.K. network Channel 4.
Price was so disgusted by the remarks, she issued a statement blasting Boyle and threatened to take legal action if the broadcaster did not apologise by Thursday evening (09Dec10).
Bosses at Channel 4 failed to make amends - and now Price is taking action.
Her lawyer, Mark Bateman, says in a statement, "Following our earlier statement, we are deeply saddened that, despite requests, publicly-owned Channel 4 has not met the 5pm deadline for an apology over the deeply offensive and hurtful sexual comments it broadcast about Katie Price's disabled son Harvey.
"Accordingly, on Katie Price's instructions, we can confirm that we have had no option but to formally complain to OFCOM on Harvey Price's behalf about the comments."
Harvey is Price's son with former soccer star Dwight Yorke.
