Despite at one stage stating he would not want to see his kids embark on a career in the entertainment industry, Peter Andre’s stance might have softened in recent years - and the “Mysterious Girl” singer is using his own fame/infamy (delete as appropriate) to give his Princess a boost. 

Exclusively revealed by the Daily Mail, Andre informed the paper that he and Princess collaborated on an "amazing song" together and that he wrote the song with his teenage daughter about a year and a half ago. Initially, Princess didn't show interest in pursuing it further, however, a recent reappraisal of the track led the 16-year-old to “fall in love with it.”

Though the proud father is happy to acknowledge his daughter’s musical prowess, he is hardly the pushy “showbiz dad” that some young performers have, emphasizing that he isn't pressuring her to release the song. 

Instead, he wants her to carve her own path and make her own choices. Andre has previously been staunch that he didn’t want to force either of his children (he also has a son with Katie Price, Junior) into the entertainment or modelling world, preferring them to make their own decisions rather than feel “compelled” to do so given the family’s history in both industries.

But having recently penned a deal with fashion brand PrettyLittleThing, and with Junior already scoring number one on the iTunes chart (and with his dad co-managing him), it looks as if Andre hasn’t had to nudge his kin into the industries that made both he and their mother famous.

Why is Peter Andre signal-boosting Cliff Richard?

In other Peter Andre news - are you aware of how much of a fan he is of Sir Cliff Richard? At least, he is a fan of Richard’s classic summertime song “Summer Holiday,” with the Australian attempting to get radio stations to play what he considers a “summer holiday tradition.”

“It’s a British tradition and a must-do to get you in the holiday spirit straight away. It marks the start of your summer holiday and when you’re singing it on the way to the airport you can almost feel the weight of everyday life lift from your shoulders. I have great fun singing it with my family,” he discussed in his position as Head of Summer Holidays at On the Beach.

 “Cliff was right, a holiday means no more working and no more worries for a week or two. We have to bring it back into our holiday routine. I’m calling on radio stations, airport lounges, baggage security lanes, planes and everyone going on their jollies this summer to play it.” 

“British holidaymakers really are missing a trick by not listening to Sir Cliff’s holiday song before jetting off on their holiday [...] Bring back the holiday song and let’s get back to enjoying the simplicities of our jollies!”

One for PeopleWorld to keep an eye on when we take a look at which K-Pop performer is doing well on Spotify next week, it would seem.
