Peter Andre is impressing the judges with his dancing skills on Strictly Come Dancing, but he was not so confident on the dance floor on his wedding day. The Mysterious Girl singer has opened up about his first dance with wife Emily MacDonagh, revealing that they both couldn't wait for it to be over.

The couple, who tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in July, selected Eva Cassidy's Songbird for their first dance as man and wife. In an interview featured in the official 2016 Strictly Come Dancing annual, Peter explained: "It was just a smoochy dance and halfway through I whispered, 'Are you over this?' and Emily said, 'I'm SO over this.' We couldn't wait to get through it."

Peter and Emily said their vows in front of their friends and family at the idyllic venue of Mamhead House in Exeter on 11 July. The couple, who are parents to 20-month-old daughter Amelia, are still in the honeymoon period with Peter recently reflecting on his wedding day on social media.

The 42-year-old shared a gorgeous never-before-seen photo of his bride in her wedding dress, standing at the top of a staircase on Friday.

"I saw this and it made me so happy. A short while before I saw my bride :))" Peter wrote in the caption.

Their relationship continues to go from strength to strength, with Emily continuing to support her husband throughout his Strictly Come Dancing adventure. The junior doctor has sat in the audience on more than one occasion, and has previously said that she isn't worried about the so-called Strictly curse.

"I think if you are someone who is going to have an affair it would be part of your personality and you would do it regardless," Emily told The Mirror at the Pride of Britain Awards. "But Pete is not like that, he is very loyal and I trust him completely. Maybe I'll be proved wrong but that's how I feel."

Peter, likewise, has always made his affection for his wife public. He congratulated Emily on passing her medical exams earlier this year, and openly admits that Emily is the boss.

"Guys, I wear the trousers, but she picks them for me. She picks the colour, the size, the belt," Peter told Free Radio.
