Peter Andre has changed his mind about allowing his children Princess and Junior to appear on Love Island – but there’s a pretty big catch.
The 50 year old pop singer, who rose to fame in the 1990s thanks to smash hit Mysterious Girl, shares his 15 year old daughter and 17 year old son with ex Katie Price.
Peter previously banned the teenagers from appearing on the ITV relationship reality show – on one occasion interrupting Princess’ Instagram Q&A to say: “She won’t be going on Love Island. Not tomorrow or next year or…ever.”
But now it appears he has lifted the ban, albeit with one big condition, as he revealed he would prefer his children to present the show, rather than appear on it as contestants.
Peter, speaking to MailOnline, said: “I've sort of said to them I'd love you to try and present it rather than be a contestant, but then again, I've always said there's some great people who have come from the show.”
He went on to point out the example of Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, who have “done so well” after coming second on the 2019 season, staying together and welcoming the first child Bambi in January.
Peter added: "So there is a lot of good things that come from it."
When Princess turned 15 last year, Peter shared a hilarious birthday message that once again spelled out the Love Island ban.
He wrote on Instagram: "Happy 15th birthday to my kind, loving, moody and caring daughter. You bring so much life to our home. We all love you so much.
“You are beautiful inside and out just the way you are and never forget that. Happy birthday and NO, you can’t go on Love Island. Love dad."
In February this year, Peter said that if Princess or Junior went on Love Island he would ‘leave the country’.
Speaking about the Love Island ban on Good Morning Britain, Peter said: "I say things in jest a lot of the time. I've said my daughter was going to be a nun for how many years, you know, and everyone knew I was joking, but I was kind of secretly going 'hopefully'.
"But you know, when they turn 18, kids are gonna do what they want. What I said to them is, if you have a choice, I'd rather you present Love Island.”
He added: "What I'm saying is that's what I always said. It's better to try to be a presenter. Look at yourself in that way rather than a contestant. Even though I have been a contestant in many shows.
This week, Peter had his say on the drama surrounding This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield in his exclusive column for OK! VIPs, saying the duo had "never been anything but nice to me”.
