Peter Andre: I Had To Ask Emily For Permission To Do Strictly

While we might be super pumped to see Peter Andre garb up in sequins for this years Strictly Come Dancing it would seem that he was worried not everyone would be as keen – namely, his wife Emily MacDonagh.



Peter admits that before he even dare consider signing on the Strictly dotted line he made sure he asked his new wife for PERMISSION.

In a sneak excerpt from a soon to be aired interview on Free Radio, the sometime coffee shop entrepreneur said:

“Of course I asked her permission. Guys, I wear the trousers, but she picks ’em for me. She picks the colours, the size, the belt. I mean, you have to ask permission.”

We suppose ballroom dancing can be seriously objectionable.

However, by the sounds of things Ems is getting right into it suggesting perhaps some rather sparkly trousers for her hubby.

“She’s already sending me pictures of sparkly outfits with smiley faces at the end. It came about because Strictly have been kind enough to ask me for the last three years.”

Nice casual humble brag there, Pete.

Peter joins weather presenter Carol Kirkwood, BBC Proms star Katie Derham, former Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote, EastEnders star Kellie Bright , TV chef Ainsley Harriott and BBC host Jeremy Vine on the 13th series of the Saturday night dance contest.

It has also been just announced this morning that Daniel ‘O Donnell will also join the line-up.
