Peter Andre's Strictly worries

Peter Andre is worried he has no chance of winning 'Strictly Come Dancing' after snubbing the show's live tour.

The 'Mysterious Girl' singer is set to hit the road on his own swing tour next year and will not be able to take part in the live version of the BBC show, but insiders claim it has left Peter worried that his decision could prevent him from taking home the Glitterball trophy.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Pete believes he'll be denied the Glitterball as they want the winner on tour at all costs.

"But he has his own live swing tour which is going to bring him loads more money and did not want to commit to weeks more 'Strictly'."

However, a spokesperson for Peter revealed he is trying to make an appearance on the tour if he can arrange it.

Meanwhile, the pressure is said to be getting to the reality TV star and singer, with the insider added: "There's been moments he's broken down because the pressure of it has gotten too much."

Judge Craig Revel Horwood recently admitted he's been disappointed Peter's performance on the programme so far and has warned the singer - who was favourite to win when the new series began - he needs to up his game and stand out more if he wants to stay on top.

He said: "Sorry to say it, but Peter Andre is becoming a bit of an also-ran in the competition. Technically, he's very good, but he needs to stand out from the crowd more."

He added: "I'd be worried if I were him. He's missing the 'It' factor and I want to see him fly not fail. Come on Pete!"
