Peter Andre's surprising new career move after birth of fifth child

Peter Andre is said to have bagged an exciting new acting gig in an upcoming TV series. The 51 year old pop star turned actor, who was recently spotted in his debut film role, is set to jet off next month to film scenes for a new Channel 5 drama.

A source revealed to The Sun: "Pete will fly out to Cyprus in June to start filming his latest role. It's a gritty Channel 5 thriller and he's really excited to get to work on it. Pete's been working hard on his acting career and he's got a lot more projects coming up."

Earlier this month, fans got a glimpse of Pete's first film role in the movie Bullet, where he plays a character named Flux.

In the teaser, Pete's character is seen confronting a thug in a deserted boxing gym, with both men backed by heavies, hinting at their roles as crime bosses.

Despite being best known for his hit song Mysterious Girl, Pete revealed that he actually studied acting before becoming a pop sensation. He said: "Acting is something I studied as a kid and I love doing something that combines acting, singing and dancing. Back in the old days, if you wanted to be an actor you had to learn how to sing and dance and if you wanted to be a singer you also learned how to act and dance."

Pete and his wife Emily recently welcomed their baby girl Arabella, which Peter and Emily had candidly discussed their struggle to pick the perfect name for the newborn.

After weeks of deciding and enlisting help from fans, Peter and Emily MacDonagh announced that their baby girl - who arrived on April 2 - they eventually settled on the name Arabella, with Emily announcing at the beginning of the month.

They revealed that the adorable newborn is called Arabella Rose - but seven weeks on and the Mysterious Girl singer has admitted he calls the tot something entirely different. In fact, he's even yet to call her Arabella at all!

Spilling the beans in his column for new! magazine, Peter revealed: "Arabella is now seven weeks old where has the time gone?"

"I still haven't called Arabella by her name. I absolutely love it and she really suits it but I still call her 'bubba.’”

He also fathers Junior, 18, and Princess, 16, from his previous relationship with Katie Price and is a doting dad to Amelia, 10, Theo, seven, with Emily.

Pete and his daughter Princess had fans in stitches recently with their latest antics together. The duo decided to re-create a viral video that saw the singer place a cup on his head while Princess aimed to knock it off.

Before the 16 year old threw a shoe towards the cup, in the hope of hitting it, Peter could be heard saying: "I trust my daughter." However, things didn't quite go to plan as when Princess threw the shoe, it ended up hitting her dad in the face, rather than knocking the cup over.
