Peter Andre was left shell-shocked when his daughter Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther asked him whether he would ever let her take part in Love Island.

During an appearance on Loose Women, the Mysterious Girl singer revealed the news when he weighed in on whether it’s okay for parents to allow their children to watch the ITV2 dating show.

Admitting that he doesn’t want to be “strict” and implement a hard ban in his household, he recalled how 12-year-old popped the unexpected question evening, to which he responded: “‘When they start doing Love Island based on priests and nuns and doing sermons on Sundays, you can go on.'“

Talking about his son, Andre explained: "It's really difficult because Junior is 14 now and he's like, 'Are you going to let me watch it?’

"I'm like, 'But but but.' Then he goes, 'I'll just go and watch it on my phone.’”

When it comes to Princess - his youngest child with ex-wife Katie Price - Andre says he’s a little bit firmer with saying ‘no.’ Yet he still worries that she’ll think he’s “mean.”

While he isn’t keen on his children tuning in to what’s going on in the villa every night, the 46-year-old insists he’s not preaching other parents or care-givers do the same.

"It doesn't mean I'm right,” he added. “I always say this - every parent's got a different thing, they use their discretion. For me, I just think she's a bit young.

"I don't mean to be strict. They get told everything by their friends anyway. Junior is getting to the stage where he wants to hang out and watch things. His friends have it on their phones and they watch it on catch-up."
