Reality TV star and all round babe Peter Andre has revealed that while he’d jump at the chance to take part in Strictly Come Dancing, he’d say ‘no’ to going into the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Speaking to What’s On TV before he had to cancel some of his personal appearances this week in order to be with his tragic brother Andrew – who is very sadly only expected to live a few more days – Peter said, “I’d like to do Strictly Come Dancing, but it takes up too long a time.”
But of Celebrity Big Brother, which Peter’s ex-wife Katie is rumoured to be taking part in when it returns to Channel 5 in January – he and Katie first met when they both starred in I’m A Celebrity – he said, “The one I would always be dubious about going on and can’t see myself doing.
“But then again you can never say never because I didn’t think I’d do I’m A Celebrity – is stuff like Big Brother…
“I don’t mean any disrespect to Big Brother, but there are certain shows I just wouldn’t feel as comfortable doing.”
However, he concluded, “I think TV is my future, but nothing can ever come close to me being on stage…
“The person I become, how happy I become, how focused I become – it’s all to do with stage, more so than recording an album.
“For me, it’s all about the concerts now.”
Meanwhile for Peter’s fans who weren’t aware that he’d had to cancel some of us upcoming live shows so that he can be with Andrew, a statement on Pete’s website reads that “with great regret” Peter will be rescheduling the gigs and appearances for January.
The statement added, “His brother Andrew’s health has taken a turn for the worse and Peter has made the decision to be with him and his family at this time.
“Fortunately it has been possible to reschedule the five remaining 2012 dates on the Up Close & Personal Tour to take place following his pre-existing shows in January 2013.”
Original tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates, and ticket holders requiring a refund are asked to contact the point of purchase.
