Peter Andre's wife Emily MacDonagh is confident their relationship will survive his stint on Strictly Come Dancing. The 26-year-old, who tied the knot with Peter in July, said she isn't worried about the supposed Strictly "curse" because the Mysterious Girl singer is a "loyal" person.

Speaking to The Mirror at the Pride of Britain Awards, she said: "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.

"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."

The recently qualified doctor also said she thinks Peter's dance partner Janette Manrara is "great".

"I've met Janette and she's great," Emily said. "I think we'll all have a night out together soon."

Emily's comments echo Peter's sentiments that she is not fazed by the thought of him spending so much time with his professional dance partner.

"Gosh, we've just got married, so if she's worried now then we've got problems," the 42-year-old told Fabulous magazine. "I don't necessarily know if it's nice to see, but I know that she knows me, that I'll just switch it on on stage. I've got to be able to give my all. Em's said to me: 'Go and do your thing. Do it'."

Peter previously admitted he asked Emily for permission before signing up to compete on the BBC show, telling Free Radio: "Of course I asked her permission. Guys, I wear the trousers, but she picks them for me. She picks the colour, the size, the belt. I mean, you have to ask permission."

The performer may be training for up to five hours a day, six days a week in his bid to win Strictly, but it appears to have put no strain on their relationship. The couple, who are parents to one-year-old Emily, could not take their eyes off each other as they walked the red carpet at the Pride of Britain Awards on Monday.
