Peter revealed he was 'so proud' of Junior

"So proud of my son," she wrote alongside it.

Peter and Katie's daughter, Princess, was also in attendance, also revealing she was "so proud" of him. Junior's new single SLIDE will be released on Friday, nearly a year after signing his first music deal at the age of 16.

Last year, whilst appearing on Loose Women, Peter revealed that he made his son wait until he was 16 to sign the contract as it was the same age he was when he signed his own back in 1989.

"I'm so proud of him, I wouldn't let him sign his deal until he was 16, which is exactly the same age [I was] when I signed my deal."

"I've actually got a picture of the two contracts, the one Junior signed at 16 and the contract I signed at 16. I should put that up one day," he added.
