The singer prefers to be in control of his beloved motor

Peter Andre is very pleased that his Lamborghini is running again.

The singer, 41, adores his car – which he’s nicknamed The Beast – but hasn’t been able to take it out for a while as it was in need of some mechanical work.

‘He’s been locked up in the garage and wasn’t happy!’ says Pete.

‘I love driving him through the countryside because it’s a great way to clear my mind.’

Unfortunately for Pete, he isn’t able to experience The Beast with his fiancée Emily MacDonagh as they can’t fit their six-month-old daughter Amelia in it.

But the dad-of-three secretly isn’t that bothered.

Pete – who also has son Junior, 9, and daughter Princess, 7, with ex-wife Katie Price – quite enjoys zooming around in his sports car by himself.

‘Now that Millie is here, there are always three of us, so I have to take The Beast out on my own as he’s only a two-seater,’ says Pete.

Ems isn’t interested in driving him one bit, it’s not her type of car. I kind of like that though!’
