Peter Andre’s latest throwback picture on Instagram has fans in hysterics.

Staring dangerously into the camera, a twenty-something Pete shows off his wet-look curtains, his gold hoop earring, and fashion-forward roll-neck woolly jumper.

It’s all so very nineties.

I know ……I know #throwbackthursday

A post shared by Peter Andre (@peterandre) on

He captioned the picture: “I know, I know #throwbackthursday”.

Fans went predictably wild for the retro shot.

One wrote: “I loved you back then, but I love you even more today. Not only have you got better looking with age but over the years we’ve been able to find out who the real Peter is, and what a man, father, friend, husband, the list goes on.”

Another added: “You were my pin up back then and still are now! What a hot human you are”.

A third said: “OMG brings me back my school days, I had you postered all over my walls lol.”

Back in the nineties, the now 44-year-old was everyone’s favourite singer/six-pack.

After a series of number one singles in Australia, the singer hit the big time in the UK with his second album Natural in 1996.

It included the unforgettable hit single, Mysterious Girl, which reached number two in the UK charts, and Flava, which peaked at number two.

Mysterious Girl was the soundtrack to many people’s youth – yes, including ours.

But last year, Pete revealed the shocking truth that it had originally been called Mystery Man.

He told NewsCorp: “The guys I wrote the song with had a song called Mystery Man.

“It was written in the way that Shabba Ranks did that song Mr Lover Man. The girls were singing the chorus, ‘Oh mystery man, I want to get close to you’.

“They wanted me to rap something after they sang that. I can’t rap. So we decided to change it to Mysterious Girl and I’d sing the whole thing.”

After his early success, the reality star disappeared for a while. He re-appeared on UK screens in 2004 as a contestant on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

It was there that he famously fell for glamour model Jordan – AKA Katie Price.

The pair were married between 2005 and 2009, and share children Junior, 12, and Princess, 10.

Pete has since re-married doctor, Emily MacDonagh and they have two more children, Amelia, four, and Theo, one.

We’d LOVE to know what Emily and the kids think of this shot.
