Pete tells Now's Jessica Boulton about his role model

He’s the housewives’ favourite with millions of fans – and gorgeous new girlfriend Emily Macdonagh, 22 – yet Peter Andre’s spending a romantic night in with Now’s News Editor Jessica Boulton.

They meet up in a private room in London’s Kettner’s restaurant to talk about relationships and the Mysterious Girl singer couldn’t be happier.

‘It’s going really well [with Emily], Pete, 39, tells Jess. ‘She’s a lovely girl who’s making me happy again.’

Peter’s here to promote his new ITV2 show Peter Andre’s Bad Boyfriend Club, in which he gets experts to help hapless people become better other halves.

It’s an irony not lost on Pete.

‘I’m not putting myself up as an example,’ he shrugs. ‘I’m a bad boyfriend.

‘I don’t know much about relationships. Look at my past.

‘The person I really look up to is David Beckham.

‘Look how long Victoria and him have been together. Apart from that one thing [that’ll be Rebecca Loos then] he knows how to make it work.

‘I really admire him when it comes to family.’

Ooh! Could family be on the cards for him and Emily?

‘No, no, not yet,’ he laughs. ‘It’s only been a few weeks!’
