Peter Andre could not be prouder as his eldest daughter Princess prepares to take the modelling world by storm.
The 16-year-old made her debut for Pretty Little Thing on Tuesday after reportedly signing a lucrative four-figure deal with the fast fashion brand.
Princess, along with her older brother Junior, 18, who is a budding singer and actor, are both being managed by Andre’s long-time manager Claire Powell of The Can Group, with him acting as a “silent manager”.
Speaking to the Standard at the launch of The Butterfly Ball at Fantasia 3, Andre, 50, could not hide his delight at Princess carving out a name for herself, declaring: “She’s smashing it!”
“She has just done a big shoot and I couldn’t be prouder of her.”
Reflecting on Junior following him into the music world, the Australian singer said: “What’s great is he’s only 18, so he does a bit of music, then he steps away and he’s doing his acting, then he comes back and does the music and I love that.”
In the future, the Mysterious Girl hit-maker says he could see both appearing on ITV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here in the future.
Their appearing on the show would be like them coming full circle as it’s where Andre first met and fell in love with their mother, glamour model Katie Price, whom he was married to from 2005 until 2009.
He said: “I did say to them they should definitely think one day about going on I’m A Celebrity because I think they’d be brilliant. To go to the place where, it’s like not many people can experience that.”
Drawn on which of his offspring he thinks would fare better in the Australian jungle, he laughs: “I think Princess would be more entertaining because she’s scared of everything, where Junior’s pretty confident.
“She’ll be petrified of everything saying ‘I need to ring my dad because there’s a spider.”
Princess has previously expressed her desire to appear on another reality TV show – Love Island.
Andre is pretty adamant that’s not happening.
“Here’s the thing,” he explains. “Until she’s 18, I have a say. Then when she’s 18 she probably won’t listen to me anyway,” he said.
