TV’s Peter Andre is sending his kids back to school when they reopen, but only because wife Emily insists.
The former pop star has admitted he has differing views from his doctor wife as he prepares to send his children back, as lockdown moves to the next stage of relaxed measures.
In an interview with The Sun, he said: “We very rarely have opposite views – but I don’t think they should go back tomorrow and Emily thinks they should.
“The only reason I’m going with what Emily says is because she’s a doctor.”
He then admitted: “If it was up to me I’d say no.”
Homeschooling has been tricky
The doting father has two children with wife Emily (Amelia and Theo) and two children with ex-wife Katie Price (Junior and Princess). The Mysterious Girl star has admitted that homeschooling and entertaining the kids at home has proved a challenge.
Sharing a snippet of his online show Life with The Andres, Peter can be seen telling the camera how he struggled to teach maths to six-year-old Amelia. The clip shared on Twitter shows Peter saying: “I’m not even gonna lie, she’s six, I have struggled.”

He can be seen stressing to wife Emily: “You can’t tell me I’ve done all of it wrong because I’ve written so many things down. So look through her book please, I would be devastated…”
The clip shows the parents debating over whether Peter has managed to teach the Year 1 maths correctly, with Emily trying to reassure her husband that it’s not all wrong.
Returning to school
Schools are set to re-open with children in Reception and Years 1 and 6.
The re-opening has been met with concerns by teaching bodies and parents alike over concerns on safety. Some schools across the UK have refused to open until the pandemic has calmed down further.
