Peter Andre has hinted he will soon be reunited with his family, who are based in Australia. Over the past 20 months, the 48-year-old has expressed his heartache over not being able to see his elderly parents due to the various travel bans during the pandemic.

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."
Back in January, in his column for new! magazine, Pete had said his parents are his "main priority" this year. "My number one priority this year is to go and see my mum and dad in Australia, as I miss them too much," he explained.
"I'm anxiously awaiting the borders opening as it's been upsetting not seeing them, especially as my mum isn't very well."
He added: "I actually contacted the Australian Embassy because there are special circumstances whereby family members can fly over, but sadly I don't fit the criteria."
