It comes after Peter revealed he was devastated as he is unable to see his poorly mother in Australia due to travel restrictions.

The singer even contacted the Australian embassy in order to see his parents, who are both in their mid-eighties.

Opening up in his New! Magazine column, Peter said: “I’m anxiously awaiting the borders opening as it’s been upsetting not seeing them, especially as my mum isn’t very well.”

He continued: “I actually contacted the Australian Embassy because there are special circumstances whereby family members can fly over, but sadly I don’t fit the criteria.”
