Rehearsing for 40 hours per week is bound to make a difference, Peter Andre!

It seems like Strictly Come Dancing is already taking its toll on Peter Andre‘s physique – despite the fact that the show hasn’t started yet. He’s revealed that he’s rehearsing for a gruelling 40 hours a week, and that he’s already noticing changes to his body. Good changes, we assume!

Writing in his New! magazine column, Pete said: ‘I love that [Janette Manrara, his dance partner] is working me hard… I think I’m doing between 30 and 40 hours a week, but I’ve just got to! I’ve definitely noticed a change in my body…She’s pushing to perfect my posture.’

Pete also posted an Instagram picture of the pair messing around in sunglasses, with the caption ‘Salt and Peppa? Or Salt and Peter? As you can see today we are rehearsing hard. We are actually haha.’

Yeah, yeah, it looks like it…

His wife Emily MacDonagh, who recently qualified as a doctor, will no doubt be pleased with Pete’s now hot bod. The pair are more loved-up than ever, with Pete posting a steady stream of selfies with Emily on his Instagram.

Pete has also said that, despite his challenging rehearsal regime, he’s still focused on his family. He revealed that he spends the mornings with his 20-month-old daughter Amelia before heading to rehearsals, and always tries to be back in time to put her to bed. Aww!
