Peter Andre's net worth

Pete is worth around £12.5 million, according to The Richest.

While his music career is where it all started, he's since branched out into other ventures, including women's fragrances and a coffee shop business with his brother, Danny.

He's previously spoken about being sensible with money and revealed that his dad helped him invest his earnings.

According to Hello magazine, Pete said: "My father was my saviour because the money, such as royalties, would come in from Australia, and he would just invest it for me. If it had gone into my account I'd have just spent it."
