"I'm so sad I can’t see you face to face yet, but I pray the borders will open soon. Thank you for inspiring me in every possible way. Bringing me and my brothers and sister up in a way that I hope has made you proud. I hope we’ve listened (I'm sure I’ve messed up a few times, and for that I apologise) but I have and will always try to think of you both and your lessons as I bring my children up in this changing world," wrote the 48-year-old.

Peter's celebrity friends rushed to support him in the comments, with Jamie Lomas writing: "you are an amazing dad", whilst Kerry Katona commented: "Oh I love your mum and dad… they’ve always been so lovely to me…. Happy anniversary".

Peter is father to four children, Junior and Princess from his previous marriage to Katie Price, and Theodore and Amelia, who he shares with his wife Emily Andre.

The father-of-four is clearly passing his loving relationship with his own parents onto his children, and often takes to social media to share sweet moments of them growing up.

"Love and all the respect in the world. Love from your son".
