Peter Andre

Peter Andre is one of Britain's most watched reality show stars.

He first found fame aged 16 years old after he was offered a recording contract following a stint on Australian talent show New Faces.

He then released several albums and songs, including his 1996 hit single 'Mysterious Girl'. That single peaked at number two in the charts but the album it was taken from reached number one.

But it was with Pete's move into reality TV and his marriage to Katie Price that really ramped up his showbiz career after they met while taking part in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! back in 2004.

They got engaged just months after the series ended and tied the knot in 2005.

The couple went on to launch the 'Katie & Peter' reality show franchise on ITV2 which documented the trials and tribulations of their celebrity lives together.

Shows in the sprawling fly-on-the-wall series included When Jordan Met Peter, Jordan & Peter: Laid Bare and Jordan & Peter: Marriage and Mayhem.

Their lives were also laid bare in Katie & Peter: The Next Chapter and Katie & Peter: The Baby Diaries among many others.

Peter and Katie share two children: son Junior, 12, and daughter Princess, 10.

Sadly, however, the pair divorced in 2009 after three and a half years of marriage.

Since 2012, Pete has been in a relationship with doctor Emily MacDonagh.

The pair were married in 2015 and have two children together - daughter Amelia, four, and son Theo, one.

He currently presents Peter Andre's 60 Minute Makeover and often features on ITV's This Morning as a roving showbiz reporter.

In 2015, he appeared on the thirteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing, partnered with Janette Manrara. They were voted out before the quarter final on week 10.
