Peter Andre on Strictly: 'Emily's nervous for me'

Peter Andre has been dubbed one of the front-runners on Strictly Come Dancing and consistently scores highl in the leaderboard, but the suave singer has admitted that Strictly is the most nerve-wracking experience he's ever gone through. His new wife Emily MacDonagh also agrees.

"She's nervous for me," Peter said during an appearance on This Morning. "She knows how passionate I am and how I love doing what I do, but she also knows I'm clumsy!"

"But she's so proud," Peter added.

It was meant to be a peace sign

The Mysterious Girl singer has been training hard and topped the leaderboard on more than one occasion. This weekend Peter will be doing the rumba with his professional dance partner Janette Manrara and admitted: "I have no idea what it is, but it sounds great!"

Peter, who has brought his three children to dance rehearsals before, also addressed his dramatic weight loss. "I am exactly the same weight I was twenty years ago in my Mysterious Girl video – it's unbelievable. When you do the show, you can eat what you want, it's the only time you feel guilt-free."

"The nerves you have on the show is something I've never experienced before," he added. "You don't want to get anything wrong… but it's great fun. And you know when they say the woman is always right? In this case she [Janette] is!"

"Is Emily not always right then?" quipped host Amanda Holden.

"Oh yes, and Emily! Of course," laughed Peter, 42.

The singer married trainee doctor Emily, 26, in July, having been in a relationship with her for three years. The couple are parents to a daughter Amelia, who turns two in January next year.

On the subject of married life, Peter added: "It's just incredible. She's just beautiful... We filmed the whole wedding but there was a ten-minute highlight video and we saw it and I'd love to let everyone see it because it is that good. I'd love you to see it, it was a beautiful day."
