Biography

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.

Peter Andre Backs Freezer Food Campaign


Peter Andre

Research shows the average U.K. household has $75 (£50) of food per resident sitting in the freezer, and frozen food chains Birds Eye and Iceland have launched a new social media drive to encourage Brits to tuck in and use up their reserve meals.

Mysterious Girl singer-turned-reality TV star Peter has signed up as one of the public faces of the campaign, and he tells fans they can bid for the chance to win $75 of Iceland vouchers by joining in and taking a 'freezie' - a fun 'selfie' photo in front of their open freezer.

He says, "The new social media campaign that Iceland and Birds Eye have launched goes to show we really do overlook what's in our freezers, with the average person keeping £50 worth of frozen food in there. My freezer is always full to the brim with frozen food, so I had to get involved in their Freezie campaign and take a selfie in front of my freezer. This week, 50 people can win £50 worth of Iceland vouchers every day... it's freezy money!"

Katie Price has compared her old relationship with ex-husband Peter Andre as being like “Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie” - at least in the minds of the British public.

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.”
