Peter Andre breaks down during TV interview

Pass the tissues.

Peter Andre fought back tears during a live TV interview yesterday, after questions about his ex-wife, their children and her new husband left the singer choked up.

During the segment with Sky News presenter Kay Burley, the reality TV star was shown archive footage of Dwight Yorke, the father of Katie Price’s son Harvey, 7, criticising Peter for wanting to adopt the child.

Responding to the clip, the 36-year-old said: “To me, a nice little thank you would be nice. I asked to adopt him because I love him. I didn’t ask to adopt him to be disrespectful. It angers me when people turn around and I get a comment like that.”

Asked how he might feel if Alex Reid wanted to adopt Junior, 4, and Princess, 2, he angrily stated: “‘No one is going to take my kids away from me – nobody. I’m sorry. Nobody is going to take my kids away from me. And I will fight to the death for that. Nobody’s going to take those kids away – I’ll die before I let that happen. It’s not going to happen. I will go to court.”

Andre, who admitted he had no prior knowledge of Price, aka Jordan’s whirlwind wedding to the cage-fighter, cut short the interview and has since cancelled a string of other scheduled appearances.

Katie Price weds Alex Reid

C’mon now, this is hardly a surprise. It’s Katie Price we’re talking about.

The glamour model has tied the knot with boyfriend of 7-months, cage-fighter Alex Reid in a quickie Las Vegas wedding.

Price, aka Jordan and the 34-year-old Celebrity Big Brother winner exchanged vows in a private ceremony – watched by a select number of family and friends, at the Wynn Hotel on Tuesday afternoon.

Guests also present at the nuptials, included Katie’s publicist, Diana Colbert and the ITV2 camera crew for the 31-year-olds reality show, What Katie Did Next, who were on hand to record the blessed moment for posterity.

The newlyweds said in the statement: “We are very much in love and look forward to the future together. We can’t wait to get back and celebrate our marriage with our friends and family who we know fully support our wishes.”

A spokesman for the pair added: “Their decision to marry has not been made with any pre-conceived commercial plan or media deal in place, and their reason for getting married is purely down to their love for each other.”

Bets are on for the divorce. Put me down for 20 come November… oh, alright then, September. Gosh, I’m such an optimist.

Katie Price and Peter Andre to divorce

katie price peter andre

Katie Price and Peter Andre are set to set divorce after four-and-a-half years of marriage.

The split ends months of speculation surrounding the couple, who have documented their tumultuous relationship on ITV2 reality series Katie and Peter: Stateside.

30-year-old, Katie, once said infidelity would be the only force that would drive them apart.

She told OK! magazine in October: “I wouldn’t [leave him]. It would only be if he cheated on me. I think that’s the same for both of us – there’s nothing else that would make us break up – only if one of us was unfaithful.” 

Peter, 36, has previously said he struggled with the glamour model’s occasional penchant for wild nights on the town, where she would reprise her alter ego, Jordan.

The pair who met while filming reality TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here ‘ have two children together – three-year-old Junior Savva Andreas, and Princess Tiaamii, 21 months.

Katie also has a son, Harvey, 6, from a previous relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke.

Commenting on the separation, Katie told The Press Association: “Pete is the love of my life and my life. We have children together and I am devastated and disappointed by his decision to separate and divorce me, as I married him for life”

“This is not what I want and the decision has been taken out of my hands. I will not comment further or do any interviews regarding the separation but I will always love my Pete,”

Jeez. Is there something in the water, there seems to be a running theme of nudity and divorce going on lately.
