Peter Andre reveals son Junior, 14, is banned from ever going on Love Island after he begged to go on the show – The Sun
PETER Andre has admitted he told his eldest son Junior he is never allowed to go on Love Island.
The 14-year-old is currently in school and has a drama scholarship, BUT Peter has revealed that he is keen for his son to focus on studies rather than reality TV.
When the teen asked his father if he could appear on the ITV reality show, Peter said his answer was "yeah but only to present it!"
Caroline Flack currently presents the show which has been running since 2015, and will go to twice a year from 2020.
Junior has over 140,000 followers on Instagram and is known for his love of singing and modelling.
He often works with mum Katie Price on her brands Princess & Bunny Boutique, and Junior & Jett Boutique.
"I've told him 'you're 14, work as hard as you can to get the grades to go to university'," said Peter, speaking to new! magazine.
"If he chooses to go, great, but if he wants to move into entertainment, I'll back him."
"I want him to concentrate on schooling and so far he's doing well," he added.
"He's got a drama scholarship so he's heading the right way. He wants to do acting and I love that because it's a great focus for him."
Katie and ex-husband Peter have been at loggerheads for years on whether to let their two kids – including Princess, 12 – use social media.
Peter banned both from using it until 2018 when he allowed newly teenage son Junior to have a private Instagram account.
Katie has argued both kids should be allowed access to social media in order to help their modelling careers.
However in October Peter voiced his concern over an online scammer who impersonated Junior and begged people to send them rude snaps.
The father-of-four, 46, is no stranger to having his identity copied on social media, but admitted it left him "very worried" when it happened to Junior.
Writing in his new! magazine column, he said: "I found it very worrying that someone set up an Instagram account posing as Junior and asked people to send inappropriate pictures, but I’m so proud of the way my son handled it."
Explaining how it was an unfortunate and common thing to affect the family, he continued: "I’m no stranger to having people pose as me online – it’s happened so many times – and there are about 12 accounts pretending to be Emily, who hasn’t been on social media in seven years!"
Earlier in October, Junior told fans not to follow a fake account that asked for "inappropriate pictures" in his name.
The teen exposed the fake Snapchat account on his Instagram Story, where he urged fans not to interact with people claiming to be him.
