Peter Andre has confessed that one of his kids signing up for Love Island is his “worst nightmare”.
The dad-of-four revealed both his son Junior, 15, and daughter Princess, 13, are keen to star on the dating show, but he is not exactly feeling supportive about their possible plans.
Pete's comments come after it was reported that Gordon Ramsay’s 21 year old daughter Holly is being lined up to star on this summer’s series.
Writing in his new! magazine column, Pete, 48, said: “Love Island bosses are said to be keen to sign up Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Holly for this year’s series, although she denies she’s taking part.
"I don’t know how Gordon feels about this, but it would be my worst nightmare!”
But while Pete wouldn’t be a fan of his children appearing on the show, he admits he “loves” watching the ITV2 series.
He continued: “Ironically, though, I do love watching the show. I like Gordon – I’ve known him on and off for years, and we ran the London Marathon together in 2009.
“But imagine having to cook for him if he was your father-in-law? Every time you went to add salt, you’d get told off!
“I feel his pain as a dad, though. Junior has asked me to go on Love Island, and Princess asked me recently if I would ever let her go on the show. I said, ‘Yeah, if you were presenting it!’”
As well as Princess and Junior, who was recently struck down with coronavirus, Pete is also dad to daughter Millie, seven, and son Theo, four.
Last week Love Island bosses were said to be eyeing up celebrity chef Gordon’s daughter Holly for the next series.
Meanwhile, boxer Nigel Benn’s son Harley, 24, is also rumoured to be a part of the line-up.

Earlier this year ITV bosses confirmed that the popular series, hosted by Laura Whitmore, would be returning to our screens after it was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Junior's Covid crisis
At the time of writing, we still have a few more days left in self-isolation after Junior tested positive for coronavirus.
Although many people have had it a lot worse, he ended up spending four days in bed with a lot of body aches, a sore throat and a bad headache.
Thankfully, he is starting to feel better now. He and Princess have been doing two lateral flow tests a week for school, so Junior testing positive meant a lot of kids from his school also had to self-isolate.
Junior also has his alternative GCSE exams this week, so it hasn’t been the best timing, but he started revising again as soon as he felt well enough. I told him to just do his best and he will be fine, as long as he puts the effort in.
So on that note, good luck to everyone going through their exams. It’s definitely not been the easiest of times for them. I’ve felt sorry for the kids being stuck at home, but also grateful that we have a garden. Emily has had to work from home so I’ve been on full dad duty!
Harry goes back to his roots
I love that Harry Redknapp is doing a cameo in EastEnders. He’s an actual East Ender so it makes perfect sense.
Being in a soap isn’t something I’ve ever considered or wanted to do, although I’ve always loved watching them. Never say never, though!
A lot of people are actually convinced I was in Neighbours. I still get people saying to me, “I used to watch you in Neighbours,” and I’m like, “That’s weird! Was I good?”
Vaccine boosters for the over-50s
The vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi has said the NHS will be ready to administer Covid booster jabs for the over-50s from September. This will be for those who’ve already received both jabs, as a top-up.
I think we should do whatever we need to do to get out of this situation and get back to normal, because we can’t keep going into lockdown every time there is a surge of cases or we’ll never get through this.
It’s becoming clear the vaccines are making a huge difference. I have to say we have absolutely smashed our vaccine programme.
Panic attacks are horrible
Jesy Nelson has spoken about leaving Little Mix after reaching “breaking point” on a music video shoot and having a panic attack.
People who’ve never had anxiety or panic attacks will never understand how awful it is. Your brain goes into fight or flight mode and you almost feel like it’s shutting down. You think you’re going to die and it’s just horrible.
I think it’s good that she’s taken some time away from the industry so she can come back when she’s ready, because being thrust into the limelight in a group like that is so intense.
Every dad's worst nightmare
