Peter Andre hasn’t ruled out the possibility of bringing back his reality show – though he’s staying tight lipped on any other details.
The Mysterious Girl singer teased the idea in his weekly New magazine column, which would mean a return to reality TV following a four year absence.
Pete, 44, wrote: “A lot of people have been asking me about bringing my reality show back, you never know!”
His last stint on reality TV was his ITV2 series Peter Andre: My Life, which ran from 2011 to 2013 and documented, among other things, his romance with now wife Emily.
But he chose to quit reality TV partly because Emily, 27, prefers to stay out of the spotlight, and also because he wanted to “go out on a high” with good ratings.
“It’s going to be the tenth series since I started and we go on a high. The ratings have been amazing. The last series had the highest ratings we’ve ever had and I thought, let’s leave it on a high and bow out gracefully,” he told This Morning.
“I am with someone who is a lot more private and even though I am public and I could never ask for privacy, you have to also respect the other person.
“But it’s not just that, I do honestly think that we’ve done it and the public have been amazing, and I would hate it for the ratings to start slipping and then I have to stop.”

But it seems Emily may be coming around to the idea of appearing on reality TV these days as a source told New magazine she’s open to a new show – although she apparently isn’t that keen for daughter Amelia, three, and son Theo, three months, to take part.
“Pete’s been talking about bringing his reality show back for nearly a year now. There’s definitely something in the pipeline but the only sticking point is Amelia and Theo,” said the insider.
“Emily is happy to be filmed herself and featured quite heavily in his last series. But when it comes to her children, she doesn’t want them to be identifiable.”

Peter and Emily welcomed Amelia, their first child together, in January 2014. She was followed by a son, Theodore, in November 2016.
The couple have always tried to keep their children away from the spotlight and rarely share pictures of the two to social media.
Peter is also dad to son Junior, 11, and daughter Princess, nine, from his marriage to ex Katie Price.
Junior and Princess have been in the limelight since birth, as Peter once had a successful series of reality shows with then wife Katie.
Speaking to Now magazine last year, Peter said he felt it was “okay to a point” for the kids to be in the public eye, but he wanted them to remain children and have a normal life.
“I have a different view on this because my kids grew up on reality shows and I think it’s okay to a point. I’m just not a fan of kids being scheduled, you know what I mean?” he said.
“When we did the reality show, it was literally like home videos. It was cameras following you and filming what you’d do. It wasn’t set up, like: ‘Well, kids, you have to be at this point or be here.’
“What I’m trying to say is, we were capturing what the kids were doing and I’m cool with that and think it’s okay because the kids will grow up and make a decision about what they want to do.
“I want mine to stay kids now and when they’re older they can decide what they want to do for themselves.”
