Peter Andre is trying his hand at seeing the effects of eating unhealthily for 21 days on ITV's The Junk Food Experiment,&which airs on ITV on Wednesday. Before we watch the popular TV personality settle into three weeks of junk food, let's take a look at the star's amazing net worth. Unsurprisingly, with a successful career spanning music, reality TV, presenting, voiceovers and lucrative business ventures, it is no surprise that the 45-year-old has earned a healthy sum over the years. Here, we take a look at how much the star is worth, and how exactly he has earned his fortune.
What is Peter Andre's Net Worth?
According to The Richest, Peter has a net worth of £12.3million. Peter's income comes via many different channels. Whilst his music career took off in the 90's, Peter has since branched into reality TV, ladies fragrance and even coffee shops! Back in 2009, Peter opened up to The Telegraph that he was both a spender and a saver. "I used to be more of a spender, but I'm learning as I go. I used to take friends on first class holidays and buy jewellery for girlfriends. I think I've learned my lesson."
Peter also told how his father encouraged him to invest his money after he started having musical success. In the 90's he invested in properties in Australia and bought some land in Cyprus. He said: "My father was my saviour because the money, such as royalties, would come in from Australia, and he would just invest it for me. If it had gone into my account I'd have just spent it."
Continued Peter: "When I went into the jungle in 2004, some people may have thought I went in with nothing – but unbeknown to the public, I had those investments and I was starting to really do well from them."
Peter Andre's singing career
Born in the UK to Greek-Cypriot parents, Peter and his family moved to Queensland, Australia when he was ten. At the age of sixteen, Peter won an Australian TV talent competition called Hey, Hey It's Saturday, which earned him his first recording contract. Peter reportedly earned £146,000 from the deal. Peter went on to release his self-titled debut album in 1993. But it wasn’t until the release of his second album Natural that he became a household name. Natural topped the UK chart in 1996 and went platinum. His most popular single was Mysterious Girl, which reached number two in the UK charts and sold two million copies worldwide.Peter has released a total of eleven studio albums.

After falling in love on I'm a Celebrity in 2004, Peter married Katie Price the following year on 10 September 2005 at the picturesque Highclere Castle, which later became famous as the setting of Downton Abbey. Katie has since revealed on Loose Women that their extravagant wedding day cost around £1million. "I remember people chucking Swarovski crystals onto the tables. We had a carriage, we had a tunnel, special lighting, pink carpet… I mean, what didn't we have?!" said Katie.

Peter and Katie had two children – Junior and Princess Tiaamii – together. During their marriage, Peter was stepfather to Harvey, Katie's son from her previous relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke. Peter and Katie announced they were splitting in May 2009, and later divorced in September 2009. They cited unreasonable behaviour, and despite extensive media coverage, details of the divorce were kept private.
Marriage to Emily MacDonagh
After Peter met 20-year-old medical student Emily MacDonagh in 2010, the pair started dating in 2012. They tied the knot in 2015 at Mamhead House in Devon. It was reported that Peter forked out £5million for a six-bedroom Sussex mansion, which was once owned by Hollywood actor Tom Cruise.

Peter often treats his wife to luxurious trips to celebrate special occasions. In June, Peter told HELLO! About the surprise trip to Venice he organised for Emily's birthday. "We landed in Italy, she had no idea where we were. I wouldn't let her look at any signs. I got her on a boat. As soon as she saw the signs of Venice she was like 'Oh my God'. So I got her all the way to Venice without her knowing. It's those kind of fun things I like to do with her," said Peter.
Peter and Emily recently went on holiday to Cyprus, where the family stayed in a luxurious £600 a night villa. Peter also has a holiday home in Cyprus, estimated to be worth £2.2million (in 2013).
