Peter Andre doesn't just have the judges to impress during his stint on Strictly Come Dancing, but his children too. The father-of-three has joked that his children Junior, ten, and eight-year-old Princess are already warning him not to embarrass them on the show.

"The kids are giving me ultimatums already. 'If you embarrass us once, dad, just once…'" he said ahead of Saturday night's launch show.

The Mysterious Girl singer also admitted to feeling the pressure after being named as the bookies' favourite to take home the coveted Glitterball trophy this year.

"That's the worst pressure anyone could have," Peter revealed. "It's so nice but you can't stuff up once, that's what's so scary. They might say that at the start because maybe it's a certain audience at the moment but that will all change as soon as we start dancing."

Peter previously told HELLO! magazine that he is honing his dance moves before the series launch by watching old YouTube videos of Fred Astaire in action.

He explained: "For the past ten days I've been looking at clips of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, the Nicolas Brothers and Sammy Davies Junior to see what they did to make the audience like their performance."

He also revealed that he hopes producers won't make him dance to his hit song Mysterious Girl, telling HELLO!: "I really hope they would never play that. Although I will try to do a mysterious twirl with a mysterious girl."

While Peter is excited about appearing on the popular BBC entertainment show, he has admitted that he asked his wife Emily MacDonagh for permission to compete first.

"Of course I asked her permission," he told Free Radio. "Guys, I wear the trousers, but she picks them for me. She picks the colour, the size, the belt. I mean, you have to ask permission."
