Radio 1's Matt Edmondson dares to quiz Peter Andre on Celebrity Big Brother, won by his ex-wife Katie Price
When Pete – who has son Junior, 9, and daughter Princess, 7, with Katie – popped into Radio 1 for a chat on Saturday, DJ Matt Edmondson got the singer to take part in a Plank All Over Me interview, which involves the celeb performing the plank move over Matt as he asks them questions whilst lying underneath them. As you do.
Cheeky Matt took the opportunity to quiz Pete, 41, on whether he’d been tuning in to CBB this year. There was a moment of silence before Pete replied: ‘Go to the next question.’
Eek! As Matt laughed at the response, Pete still seemed a bit flustered.
‘I can’t always speak English you know,’ he joked. Luckily Matt moved on to a safer question about Disney characters.
Pete married Katie, 36, in 2005 after they found love in the I’m A Celebrity jungle the previous year but they split in 2009. The Mysterious Girl star is now engaged to recently qualified doctor Emily MacDonagh, who gave birth to their daughter Amelia in January 2014.
The dad-of-three might have kept a dignified silence when asked about CBB but for a moment we wondered if he was about to discuss something personal when Matt asked what advice he would give to his younger self.
‘Don’t do it,’ Pete replied, causing Matt to inquire: ‘Don’t do what?’
It turned out that the singer was referring to the music business when he explained: ‘You know, I was 16 when I went into the industry. [I] wrote some rubbish stuff at the beginning. Mysterious Girl was alright.’
Matt clearly wasn’t done and snuck in another cheeky reference to Pete‘s time with Katie by joking that Insania – the track Pete penned whilst in the jungle – wasn’t so good. Once again Pete chose not to respond and instead light-heartedly asked for a time check on how long he’d been planking. Interesting!
Pete seemed to enjoy the unorthodox interview though. Later in the day he told a fan on Twitter that he’d ‘Had fun :)))’.
What a good sport! Watch the video below…
