Peter Andre :
Peter Andre, born (Peter James Andrea), began his life on the 27th February 1973 at Northwick Park Hospital in London, England. He is the youngest of his four brothers Andrew, Chris, Danny, Michael and his sister Debbie.
Peter had a desire for music from a very early age listening to the sounds of Motown, with the likes of The Jacksons and Stevie Wonder becoming a major influence in his later life both musically and personally.
The Andre's immigrated to Australia when Peter was just six years old, only to return to the UK three years later for just 18 months. It was this period that Peters desire for writing music began to set in. Listening to soul, blues , jazz and reggae, Peter started putting pen to paper and writing whatever lyrics he could. Although there was nothing he felt proud of showing to anyone, he continued to write.
The Andre's once again moved back to Australia and at age 13 Peter wrote his first song (along with brother Chris) called Dream A Little. This song eventually became part of his debut album 'Peter Andre'. Writing songs became Peters devotion and by the time Peter was 16, he had a back log of songs written; many of which were co-written with his brother Chris.
At age 16, Peter applied to become a contestant of 'New Faces' (a show very similar to the modern day X Factor), and once Peter appeared on the show. Not only he impressed the judges, but was offered a recording contract live on television; something that had never happened before on Australian television, and has never happened since.
Peter released his first single in 1992, and within two years, had received his first 'Gold' album. His first Top 5 Australian single was 'Gimme Little Sign' at the age of 19. This single became Australia's fastest selling single in 1993. Peter received numerous national awards in Australia for his outstanding musical achievements. Peter was chosen to be the special guest performer for both the Madonna and Bobby Brown concert tours. In 1995 he toured with East 17 for their UK and then European tour.
Peter decided it was time to move back to the UK to try his luck on the British music scene. His first release ‚"Only One" hit the Top 20 at Number 16, followed by the second release of "Mysterious Girl" finally making Number 2 in the UK Charts securing his success in the UK.
Peter became the first Australian male artist to debut at No. 1 in the UK, with 'Flava'. Peter scooped two awards at the year end Smash Hits Poll Winners Party. Soon followed a total of 3 Top Five hits, including two No.1 hits in the UK and a total of 11 top ten hits worldwide. Peter's most successful release to date, came with the release of "Mysterious Girl" which sold over 2 million copies worldwide, making it the highest selling single of 1996. "Flava" and "I feel You" followed consecutively, both debuting at number 1.
Chart success soon led to major tours throughout Europe, UK, Asia and Australia. Peter's final support tour was with Tina Turner before embarking on his own UK/European Tour. Peter's lifelong dream was to perform at Wembley, close to where he was born. He achieved this with a sell-out concert at Wembley Arena on the 16th July 1997. By 1997 with a multitude of national and international awards to his credit, the 6th highest selling solo artist in the UK during the 90's, Peter's music and merchandise sales had grossed in excess of 20 million pounds.
All in all to date, Peter has achieved 8 top 5 singles in the UK alone, including four number 1s and this is only the beginning. As Peter starts penning his brand new album, the future looks bright . Peter is so excited about this project as he plans to revolutionize the way pop artists can express themselves without the influence of record companies. This album is purely funded by Pete and will give the fans a way of accessing exclusive music from Peters future. All this as well as his grooming range and clothing range being released next spring, his weekly column in NEW magazine each week, and of course 'Katie and Peter-The Next Chapter' on Thursday nights 9pm on ITV2, things couldn't be better on the career side of things. But none of this matters without Peter's loving wife and children.
On the 26th January 2004, Pete appeared on Granada TV's 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' with nine other celebrities in the Australian jungle. Within ten days of Peter appearing on the show, the re-release of Mysterious Girl became imminent, thanks to a campaign by Radio One DJ, Chris Moyles. The song went straight to number 1, making history for being the first single to reach the top of the charts on its third time of being released. Same song, same video. Proceeds for this song went to Peter's chosen jungle charity, the NSPCC. As a result, the NSPCC made Peter an ambassador, and he continues today to support the charity wholeheartedly.
Peter married Katie Price on 10th September 2005 at "Highclere Castle", Berkshire, UK, becoming stepfather to Price's son, Harvey. Peter and Katie became the parents of a baby boy, Junior Savva Andre, on 13th June 2005. Their daughter, Princess Tiaamii, was born on 29th June 2007.
Peter and Katie announced they were seperating on 11th May 2009 after four years of marriage. Their decree nisi was awarded on 8th September 2009.
Peter is currently living in Brighton, East Sussex and shares custody of the couples children.
