The Mysterious Girl star was raised in Australia but has not been able to visit his parents as much as he would like due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Last year, he shared his worries about his mum and dad – who are both in their 80s – should either of them fall ill, and again shared how grateful he was that his sister was close to them. Speaking to MailOnline, Peter said: "What if they need me? It is such an intense feeling… The only saving grace is that my sister is there."

Meanwhile, Peter's ex-wife made headlines this week. Katie, 43, was involved in a car accident in the early hours of Tuesday and a short time later her family released a statement admitting they had been "concerned" about her wellbeing "and overall mental health" for some time.

Her friends and family were quick to react to the family statement, with Junior, 16, writing: "Love you mum," followed by a red heart emoji. Princess, 14, who Peter lovingly calls Bister, added: "Love you mum so much."
