Peter Andre has said he’d have to “leave the country” if his children went on Love Island.
The Mysterious Girl singer shares daughter Princess, 15, and son Junior, 17, with his ex-Katie Price, as well as two younger children with his wife Emily.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, he admitted he wouldn’t be that impressed if his children wanted to do a stint in the villa.

He told hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard: “When they turn 18, kids are going to do what they want. What I’ve said to them is, if you have a choice, I’d rather you present Love Island, although Maya Jama is going a great job right now.
“But what I’m saying is that’s what I’ve always said to them, it’s better to try and be a presenter, you know, look at yourself in that way, rather than a contestant. Even though I’ve been a contestant on many shows.”
“But no look if they really want to do something like that, I’ll just leave the country!” he added.
Andre, 49, also opened up about hitting the big 50 later this year.
"I hear the words and it freaks me out but actually I feel good," he said. "It sounds old but it’s not, it’s not."
The star said that he had found turning 40 more difficult, as he had only just lost his brother Andrew to cancer.
"That birthday was always surrounded by that, you know, not feeling great," said the singer.
