Peter Andre: I asked for permission to appear on Strictly Come Dancing

Peter Andre asked for his wife's permission to appear on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Mysterious Girl' hitmaker was announced as a contestant on the reality TV show earlier this week, but has revealed he only agreed to appear on 'Strictly' after getting the go-ahead from his new wife Emily MacDonagh.

He shared: "Of course I asked her permission. Guys, 'I wear the trousers, but she picks 'em for me'. She picks the colours, the size, the belt.

"I mean, you have to ask permission."

What's more, the 42-year-old singer revealed his wife has already been teasing him about some of the potentially cringe-inducing outfits he may be asked to wear.

He told Free Radio: "She's already sending me pictures of sparkly outfits with smiley faces at the end. It came about because 'Strictly' have been kind enough to ask me for the last three years."

Meanwhile, Peter also dismissed suggestions he has an advantage over the other contestants - such as BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood and celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott - because of his career as a pop star.

He said: "How do we know that the weather lady doesn't go home and underneath her weather costume is sparkles and she is unbelievable?

"What about Ainsley Harriott? He's good with his hands, but with his feet?

"What he doesn't know is I'm gonna be picking his brain about cooking, I'm gonna exhaust him. It's distraction."
