Peter Andre was fresh from supporting his son following in his musical footsteps as he appeared on This Morning today. The Mysterious Girl singer appeared on the ITV daytime show on Wednesday (July 27) to chat about his starring role in the West End and his three decades in showbiz.
He joined the show’s summer hosts Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle live in the ITV studio as they chatted to him about his 30 years in the spotlight. “I do think I went through an arrogant stage,” he confessed to the presenting pair. “I do get annoyed at myself when I look back at how I said things or did things or the way I acted.”
He added: “I know I should be joyful about everything but the main thing is you get to a point where you realise you’ve grown up now.” But Josie, 37, didn’t appear to agree as she replied: “I’d have never have said that. I’ve always thought of you as the nicest man in showbiz.”
But Peter, 49, responded: “No, I’ve had my moments and I think everybody does.” Earlier in their chat, Craig reminisced about when he first met Pete leading to Josie admitting: “I’m not joking, you two have aged very well… In fact, I think you look better!”
Later, as their time chatting to Peter came to the end, Josie and Craig signaled a surprise for the dad-of-four as he was presented with a special cake by the team on the ITV show to mark his 30-year-long career.
And it was quite the surprise as it featured a replica of him in his Mysterious Girl music video from back in 1995, complete with sculpted abs made of icing. Josie said: “So we thought we’d give you a little treat with your own cake.” Seeing the creation, Peter said: “That’s fantastic,” before adding: “That’s amazing, look at those abs!”
Asked if he thought it was uncanny, Peter replied: “I’m pretty shocked at how good that is. It’s better than me, so I’m happy about that. My abs are there but they’re hibernating there nowadays.” Craig then proceed to check Pete’s abs before Josie got in on the action.
But This Morning viewers couldn’t help but note that Pete has appeared on a few ITV shows of late. @onlysmols tweeted: “Does ITV just keep Peter Andre in a cupboard somewhere in Television centre and when they need to fill a bit of time they let him out #ThisMorning.”
@mostlystupid said: “It feels like Peter Andre has been promoting it [Grease] on #GMB, #Lorraine and #ThisMorning weekly for the last couple of months.” @DinghyDiver joked: “Has Peter Andre got an ITV season pass?”
His appearance on This Morning comes after he supported his son Junior at his first gig. The 17-year-old, who Pete shares with ex-wife Katie Price, took to the stage after his debut single, Slide, appeared in the UK iTunes chart following its release.
Peter shared footage of his son’s performance on his Instagram page and it showed that Junior going for it as dancers flipped on stage, pyrotechnics fired and the crowd sang along. And his dad couldn’t have been prouder.
He wrote alongside the clip: “So proud of you on your first ever gig son. Let’s go go go @officialjunior_andre So much more to come….. @columbiauk @rebelrecs @officialprincess_andre @dr_emily_official @thecangroup #slide #proudpops #musicmanagement.”
