Junior’s foray into drama means he’s firmly following in the footsteps of his famous parents: his mum is Peter’s ex-wife, Katie Price.

And Junior’s certainly no stranger to a showbiz life!

Ever since Katie discovered she was pregnant with him, the youngster has been on TV and posed for magazine covers with sister Princess, ten.

He also has half-siblings Amelia, three, and Theo, one, from Peter’s marriage to second wife Emily, and brothers Harvey, 15, Jett, four, and sister Bunny, three, from his mum.

Peter revealed Junior’s acting ambitions in an interview last year, saying that he’d enrolled the youngster in acting classes at his school.

However, Pete wanted Junior to finish school and get his qualifications before taking any serious steps towards an acting career, if that is what he wants to do.

No doubt Pete is particularly proud of Junior’s success given his own desire to do more acting.

Back in April, Peter revealed he’d landed his very first movie role in a Hollywood thriller called The Undoing.

At the time, he told fans: “Finally. I’ve received (after months of talks) my first ever film script. Start filming in LA next year, and… it’s a big part…. wahoo! I’ve only waited 44 years.”

Congrats, Junior!
