Peter Andre is an Australian pop singer and songwriter.
Childhood: Peter Andre was born in the UK to his Greek-Cypriot parents, Savvas and Thea. Peter has four older brothers, Andrew, Chris, Danny and Michael, as well as an older sister, Debby.
Music Career: Peter Andre first came to public attention in 1990 when he appeared on the Australian talent show New Faces. The boss of Melodian Records, Molly Meldrum signed Peter Andre after seeing his impression of Bobby Brown.
Andre's debut single, 'Gimme Little Sign' was released in 1992 and reached number three in the Australian charts. His debut, self-titled album followed shortly after. His popularity increased when he released 'Mysterious Girl' which was a hit in the UK and Australia alike.
Andre's next album, Natural was a number one hit, as were the next two singles, 'Flava' and 'I Feel You'.
By the time his third album, Time, was released, his success and popularity had waned. He released 'Kiss The Girl' for the soundtrack of the Disney film The Little Mermaid and was dropped by his record label.
After a break from the public eye, Peter Andre returned when he appeared on the reality TV series I'm A Celebrity. Get Me Out Of Here! Peter Andre came third in the competition, which was won by Kerry Katona, formerly of the pop group Atomic Kitten. The former royal correspondent Jennie Bond came second. The series was also notable for the apparent burgeoning relationship between Peter Andre and the glamour model Katie Price (also known as Jordan).
Peter Andre decided to capitalize on his newfound popularity. Shortly after leaving the jungle, he re-released 'Mysterious Girl', followed by 'Insania'. This was followed with the release of an album entitled The Long Road Back. The follow-up single from the album was entitled 'The Right Way' and featured his wife, Katie Price, in the video.
Between 2005 and 2009, several series of Katie & Peter were aired on primetime UK TV. The reality show was a fly-on-the-wall documentary that followed the couple's family life.
In 2009, Andre released a new album, Revelation. The promotion for the album was somewhat over-shadowed by the very public and very bitter split from Katie Price. The album deals with the breakdown of the relationship.
Peter Andre has also been announced that he has landed a job as a showbusiness reporter for the ITV show This Morning.
Personal Life: In September 2007, Peter Andre married Katie Price at Highclere Castle in Berkshire. The lavish wedding was attended by Vanessa Feltz and Jennifer Ellison and Sarah Harding of Girls Aloud was a bridesmaid, along with Kerry Katona.
Peter and Katie have a son and a daughter together, named Junior Savva Andrea and Princess Tiaamii. Katie already had a son, Harvey, by the footballer Dwight Yorke.
In May 2009, Peter Andre and Katie Price announced that they were separating after three years of marriage. The subsequent months rarely saw them out of the tabloid gossip pages and they were eventually granted a divorce in September 2009.
Gervais posted an update from the set of the big screen version of 'The Office', currently a month into filming.
Ricky Gervais has given fans a glimpse of “a new dawn” at ‘The Office’. Quite literally, in fact, as he posted a photo on his social media pages of a new actress playing the receptionist Dawn in the movie adaptation of his old BBC sitcom that he’s currently filming.
‘The Office’, which introduced the world to Gervais’s most famous comic creation David Brent, is getting the big screen treatment, which will see the deluded branch manager pursuing his dream of becoming a rock star with his band, Foregone Conclusion.

Jordan left the show permanently at the weekend, and as a parting shot claimed that 'Strictly' producers interfered with the judges' marking.
Professional dancer Ola confirmed her permanent departure from the BBC show last weekend, and has since implied that the judging panel systematically gives higher marks to more popular contestants in order to keep them in the show for longer.
At around the same time, eliminated star Jamelia also reckoned that the judges were keeping bookies’ favourite Peter Andre in the show after she lost the dance-off against the former pop star in week nine of the show this weekend.

Jamelia exited the BBC competition on Sunday after loosing out to Andre in a dance off.
Former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestant Jamelia has suggested that Peter Andre’s standing ovation on Sunday night’s show was faked so he could stay in the competition. Jamelia made the claims on her return to ‘Loose Women’ after being eliminated from ‘Strictly’ after facing Andre in a dance-off.
Jamelia has spoken out after her ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ exit.
On Sunday’s show Andre was shown getting a standing ovation for his performance in the dance-off against Jamelia, but she claims BBC producers got the audience to stand and clap and used that footage instead.
Andre may now live a comfortable life, but his father's childhood in Cyprus was extremely difficult, working as a slave to provide for the rest of the family.
‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestant and current favourite Peter Andre has made the revelation that his father was sold as a slave in his native Cyprus when he was aged just 11.
82 year old Savvas Andrea has apparently only recently told his son about his childhood on the Mediterranean island in the aftermath of the Second World War, telling him that the family was so short of food that selling some of their 13 children to slavery was the only option to survive.

Andre was testifying in a court case regarding a contract dispute between ITV2 and a reality TV show producer.
Current ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ star Peter Andre has been on the receiving end of a severe tongue-lashing by a High Court judge, who branded him as “an extremely unsatisfactory witness” and then accused him of “complete fabrication”.

She also backed her ex-husband to win 'Strictly Come Dancing', and spoke about the state of affairs with her current spouse Kieran Hayler.
When they tied the knot in 2005, Andre and Price were arguably the hottest celebrity coupling in Britain, having fallen in love in the public eye the previous year on ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’. They went on to have two children – Junior, now 10, and Princess Tiaamii, now 8 – before divorcing in 2009.
However, the 37 year old former glamour model Price still thinks that the public is still obsessed with them, even though that she has been married twice subsequently and had two more children.Speaking to The Sun’s Fabulous magazine, she said: “We've both moved on, but we're like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - everyone is obsessed with our exes… That is in the past for both of us now.”

It is claimed that professional Ola Jordan wanted the singer as her dancing partner
The sight of Peter Andre’s body parting waves on his now infamous Mysterious Girl soundtrack may have been almost 20 years ago but it seems there are some who still swoon over his saucy dance moves. It looks like one of these is Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola Jordan who, it has been claimed, was furious when the BBC One show didn’t match her with the suave singer.
Pete is a man in demand on his new show Strictly Come Dancing
The Mirror believes that the blonde dancer had a "massive meltdown" when she realised Andre wasn’t her guy and that she was instead with Olympic athlete Iwan Thomas.
