Pete says the trip is planned for August

Peter Andre has talked about heading to Australia with girlfriend Emily MacDonagh, 23, before, and now he’s actually planning to go.

But the trip will just be a visit for the pair rather than a permanent move, as Pete, 40, wants to take his girlfriend to visit his parents. 

‘We’re planning to go to Australia at the end of August, to visit my mum and dad, which we’re both excited about,’ Pete says. ‘We’re hoping to take Princess and Junior too.’

Ems has been to Australia before, but was actually backpacking last time! I’m so envious because I’ve never done that, and really want to. Maybe one day…’

Pete, 40, first mooted the idea of a permanent move Down Under on his ITV2 show Peter Andre: My Life.

And he says if it wasn’t for children Junior, seven, and Princess, five, he might’ve made the move much sooner.

‘To be honest, if I didn’t have kids, I might already have gone back there,’ Pete said at the time.
