Junior signs first record deal

It’s been a busy few weeks for Junior, who recently followed in his dad’s footsteps and signed his first record deal.

He also joined Peter, 48, on stage last month at the Fantasia festival in Essex.

Junior’s mum, Katie Price, said at the time that she’s glad the teenager has Peter to help guide him.

“He’ll be a little star,” Katie told New! magazine.

“He’s always been good at singing. His dad is the singer even though I still try, but his dad knows more in that area than me.”

Protective Peter

Meanwhile, Peter is very protective when it comes to his children.

He previously confessed that he has banned Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, from ever appearing on Love Island when they’re older.

“Princess has said she wants to do it but I still haven’t changed my mind about that,” said Pete. “Presenting it? Yes. A contestant? Not so sure!”

“She said to me: ‘Would you ever let me go on Love Island?’ I said to her: ‘When they start doing Love Island based on priests and nuns and they’re having their sermons on Sundays you can go on Love Island but until then no chance.'”

Pete reiterated his nun comment to Princess this morning as she headed back to school.

Sharing a picture of her in her uniform, he tweeted to say: ” You have a lovely heart and a lovely sense of humour. Now, about becoming a nun…”
