Peter Andre hates reality TV shows but would like to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Peter Andre hates reality TV shows.
The 39-year-old star - whose career enjoyed a resurgence after he took part in 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!' in 2004, going on to appear in the 'Katie & Peter' programmes with then-wife Katie Price from 2005 to 2009 followed by a string of fly-on-the-wall documentary series chronicling his life after they split - rarely tunes into celebrity competition contests and has never seen the popular show 'The Only Way is Essex', even though he is friends with many of its cast.
He admitted: "Believe it or not, I just don't really like reality TV shows.
"I love my show because it's about me and the kids and we are documenting our lives, but I'm not a reality TV person.
"Things like 'X Factor', 'Dancing on Ice', occasionally I'll see something but I don't like watching them.
"I haven't even seen a single episode of 'TOWIE', ever. That's bad seeing as I know them all but it's true."
Despite his comments, Peter - who has stepson Harvey, 10, son Junior, seven, and daughter Princess, five, with Katie - would love to compete on BBC show 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've always wanted to do 'Strictly'. I love that you are learning a skill while doing it."
