Peter Andre is at the centre of a huge row with ITV after pulling out of I’m A Celebrity because of Jordan.
The singer was set to travel to Australia for three weeks as a behind-the-scenes reporter for This Morning, but after discovering his ex-wife Katie Price was heading for the jungle, he told studio bosses it would be “totally improper” for him to report on the hit show.
The row erupted as the new line-up of so-called celebrities was announced. Jordan was not among them, but she’s expected to arrive in the jungle in around a week’s time as a late entry.
Pete has said he’ll now stay at home and look after the couple’s children, leaving TV executives desperately seeking a replacement.
A source said: “Pete was really looking forward to going back to the jungle but as soon as he found out that Katie was going to appear, he said there was no chance in hell he would go.
“Pete reckons there’s no way he could speculate on Katie’s antics and any outback flirtations in an unbiased way. This Morning executives are livid.”
The 36-year-old star will instead use the time to promote new single Unconditional and album Revelation, which has spent nine weeks in the Top 20.
I’m A Celebrity starts on Sunday night.
