Peter Andre promises to ‘get educated’ after Princess was criticised for swim with dolphins06/23/2021
Peter Andre recently came under fire after animal rights organisation PETA found out he'd let his daughter Princess swim with dolphins in Portugal – and Pete has responded to the criticism head on. In his new! magazine column, the star says he is "always learning" and promises to "get educated" following the criticism.
On a lighter note, the Andres recently celebrated Junior's 16th birthday and protective dad Pete reveals why he gave in and got his son a moped. He also shares his thoughts on the upcoming series of Love Island and offers the contestants a spot of advice for when they leave the villa.

A learning curve
It was a case of Peter vs PETA recently after I revealed I had edited footage of Princess swimming with dolphins in Portugal when I was contacted by them. The animal rights group weren’t necessarily having a go – just trying to get the point across about what goes on with dolphins in captivity.
I just thought, “Wouldn’t this be a brilliant experience for my daughter as it’s her dream?”
But when PETA sent me a letter, I realised the extent of the damage to dolphins in captivity. You can either turn a blind eye or become educated. I chose to get educated and spread the word so everyone else is aware.
At the end the day, we’re always learning and I’m not going to get everything right every time. I’m sure I'll continue to make mistakes, but I’ll try not to make the same ones twice.
Love Island’s back!
I’m not going to lie… I’m pretty buzzed that the new series of Love Island starts next week. People have missed it and I think it will feel we’ve got some normality once it’s back on. This series will reportedly see the show’s first disabled contestant, and it’s great that it is becoming more inclusive.
My advice for contestants would be to enjoy themselves and embrace any opportunities they're offered afterwards. Most importantly, ignore any trolls or negativity! Just delete any negative comments and don't dwell on what you read!
Junior on wheels
Junior had a brilliant 16th birthday! I surprised him by throwing a party with the help of a few friends for him and his mates. We also had a barbecue and he had a massive cake made by my cousin Sophie.
I ended up giving in and getting him a moped. I was really in two minds about it but then seeing his reaction made it all worthwhile. It was unbelievable!
If the moped could go more than 30mph, I definitely would have said no. But I did say to him, “I don’t want you going from this to a motorbike, I want you to get a car.” It’s not the motorbike that worries me – it’s the other road users!

Courage of Models
It was very brave of Abbie Quinnen on Lorraine showing the full extent of her injuries six months after she sustained burns filming a hack video.
I love that she did it because she’s exposing a part of herself that is completely different to how it used to be – and that takes courage.
I’ve always admired my friend Katie Piper for showing herself with and without makeup, too. She’s such a good role model. I was on Lorraine a few days after Abbie talking about Grease The Musical, as well as Martin & Roman’s Weekend Best! which was a lot of fun. It’s great being busy again!
Wedding day hitch
It's great that weddings can now go ahead with more than 30 guests, but I still don’t think it’s clear enough as there were so many grey areas with the guidance. I also read couples could face a £10,000 fine if they don’t complete a proper risk assessment for their big day.
I think that’s way too much pressure for a wedding and I feel so sad for the couples who will have to worry about all these dos and don’ts!
