Peter Andre has come a long way since his muscular Mysterious Girl days! He’s gone from 90s pop singer to reality star, husband, dad and Strictly performer! Scroll down to see the pictures that show the Australian star’s transformation from unknown one-hit-wonder to one of the nation’s favourite celebs…
In May 1996 Peter’s single, Mysterious Girl was released and became a chart sensation! He was also an instant hit with the ladies thanks to his tanned muscles and amazing abs!
Once the fuss died down, and after several failed new singles later, Pete took a break from celebville but returned in 2004 for I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, where he famously fell for Jordon, aka Katie Price.
After they flew home the pair continued their relationship and the media LOVED it! They played up to the cameras at every opportunity and appeared a match made in reality TV heaven.
Pete’s weight ballooned on the red carpet in 2004 as he and Jordon were seen at just about every red carpet event they could get invited to!
Peter took on the role of dad to Katie’s disabled son Harvey from her relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke.
Books, TV shows and interviews – the celebrity couple were rumored to have made £30 million in endorsements and merchandise.
Katie soon fell pregnant with the couple’s first child in 2005 and they had a son named Junior in the June of that year.
Two years later Peter was a dad again as the couple welcomed their daughter Princess into the world in June 2007.
Peter started shaping up in 2009 and ran the marathon in Jade Goody’s memory.
Later that year he split from Katie Price and the fairytale ended. Peter was downcast while out and about with his mum.
Peter never stopped being a great dad to Junior and Princess throughout the media frenzy over the split and in the same year he released the single ‘Behind Closed Doors’ which went to no.4 in the UK chart.
In 2011 Pete began dating former WAG Elen Rivas but it was a short-lived romance as he continued his search for The One and he also started presenting the show 60 Minute Makeover bringing him back onto our TV screens once again.
And in 2011 he returned to the jungle in I’m A Celebrity for a cameo appearance! But the only relationship that grew was his budding bromance with TOWIE star Mark Wright. Bless!
In 2012 Peter went public with his romance with medical student and soon to be doctor, Emily MacDonagh. She was a world away from his former loves.
Tragedy hit Peter in 2012 when his brother Andrew died of cancer – he was heartbroken and remained close to his family throughout. Emily supported him through his heartbreak.
Peter had happy news once again when he announced he was expecting his first child with his new love Emily in 2014.
And shortly after the birth of his daughter Amelia (above), Pete proposed to Emily and the happy couple got married in 2015 in a low-key, manor house wedding.
In August 2015 Peter announced he was joining the Strictly Come Dancing line, looking to wow us (and the judges!) once again with his amazing dance moves!
Peter looked happy and healthy as he attended the Pride of Britain Awards 2015 with his new wife. So nice to see Peter happy and content again.
