This thread is so sad. Just skimmed through reading some of the comments and i can't for the life of me understand some of you. You seem to have so much hatred for this man but continue to watch his shows adding to his viewing figures and are constantly talking about him but yet you say you don't like him. Looks like the jokes on you. Your thinking about him more than people who actually like him.


Don't forget his on Jonathan Ross tonight
I don't watch his shows..

PA is known for being a cryer, at every emotional situation. Why ask him not to be who he is?
err because he is a 40 year old father of two, coming across as an 8 year old who didn't get what he wanted from santa....

Fizgig;65593712]I am bemused at most of the comments on this thread. Un-BElievable.
The channel has obviously called it 'Peter Andre's 60 minute makeover' to garner more attention and to differentiate it as a new series. Pete gets a lot of attention. He is very famous in this country. Why it should mean he does the work himself is just pmsl ridiculous.
As for announcing his cancer charity...Is he supposed to hide it? Would that be a good way to promote it? I don't get it.
I would say he's called the charity after his name because of his fame, people will immediately know who it is and who it was set up to honour.

Well it's never had to be called anything other than the 60MM previously & it pretty much says what it's about in the title without having to add Pete's name to it, I presume people who watch it will be interested in home improvements, interior design etc so adding his name to it IMO isn't going to make that much difference to ratings.

As for naming the charity after himself, I'm quite sure the Andre name would be suffice to let people know who it was for therefore I think it should have been called after Andrew


Ryan has been his friend since the 90's. Are you saying they're paying Ryan?

I had honestly never seen or heard of Ryan but I stand corrected if he has been around since the 90s, it just seems very odd that he was introduced as Pete's best friend when I'm pretty sure Karl has been given that title in previous eps.

Apologies for my lack of quoting, I've mad a right pigs ear of that!

I honestly doubt it.
Unless it's raising awareness of Peter Andre, I wouldn't have thought he'd be interested.
As for him talking about symptoms or signs of illness, let alone letting people know when they should consult a doctor, no-one should EVER take advice from someone who has proven not only that he knows nothing about the illness that sadly killed his brother, he is a damn liar aswell.
Why else would he name the foundation after anyone but himself. Ronan Keating at least had the good grace to name his after his mother and there's very few in Ireland who don't know know about the Marie Keating Foundation.

Oh Daisy, thank you for saying that. I had a laugh doing the reviewage to begin with and finding laughs in it for our entertainment but it's so beyond that now. Reviewing it as comedy now is as fraudulent and fake as PA is.

RIP PA as unintentional entertainment.
I sensed your apathy in the last few weeks and I think if even you struggle to muster the energy to watch the shows and critique humorously, then they must be depressing to watch. We love your reviewerage and don't want you to stop but we understand if you want to.

I think it's part of his "little boy lost" routine to appeal to woman who want to mother him
Yeah, he's tapped into that 'mothering' thing that appeals to some women. In fact all you see on screen is him being babied, crying and getting his numerous 'mummies' (Gloria, Claire, Emily) organise him, hug him and pick up after him like he's two. Manbaby fans and cryey sorts must love it,I can see the appeal.

@Nota - precisely.
The Marie Keating Foundation is extremely well-known and does a fantastic job.
Clearly despite his many faults, Ronan is not a parasitic famewhore.

@Daisy - I've genuinely never understood the appeal of a grown man who acted like a little boy.
It's even stranger that someone almost young enough to be his daughter (the blessed St Emily) seems happy to go along with it aswell.
Surely by now someone should have told him to grow a pair and man up.
He's 40 ffs.

Exactly re Ronan & same applies to Gloria Hunniford for setting up her daughter's foundation in her daughter's name.
He's set this up but I think I've seen one tweet from him in the last week about it & he managed to squeeze in he was partly funding it In my opinion he should be hammering his tweets with info etc about it to help raise money while it still fresh in people's minds but one tweet!

Well obviously.
It's NOT about raising awareness of anything but PA.
Give it a week or two and the hilariously hopeless manbaby will have handed over control of the whole "foundation" to someone else and will be back to the shameless, disgusting famewhoring he does best.

He's a self-centred abomination imho.

I really do not think he gives a rat's backside about anyone other than himself.

Agreed.

His behaviour totally disgusts me.

'Peter Andre's 60 minute makeover'
, surely that describes an evening of him getting ready to go out: having his hair spiked (may be secretly dyed), which pair of sunglasses to wear (or not to wear), which level to set the 'tan-o-matic' spray booth at. Come to think about it, 60 minutes is cutting it fine. Better make it a feature length episode!

If you read my post properly it says she MIGHT not be comfortable ...etc ..I'm making a suggestion..it's not a conclusion it's a discussion point ..an idea .. A theory .. I'm not scraping any barrels or fantasising ..
You said "Princess might not be comfortable because she knows the difference between when he is being a genuine loving dad and when he is doing it just for the cameras .. "
It means what I said it means as well as what you think it means.

I agree.

err because he is a 40 year old father of two, coming across as an 8 year old who didn't get what he wanted from santa....
He's crying over his dead brother, hardly a manbaby, and to compare it to the BIB, how vile.

A few posters have been complaining about the other thread being over the line, yet they're here making the worst comments they can think of.

Oh you're so clever. Yuh that happens but not with a face that looks like it is smelling the worst fecking shit anyone had ever produced. No one would want to come home to a face like that, you'd think what have they done to my fecking house if he has a face like that

I've never heard Karl being described as his best friend, but if so, he must have more than one best friend, as opposed to no friends at all

He's called the charity after himself - he's a shameless famewhore.
If the charity was called after the person it was set up to honour it would be named AFTER HIS BROTHER.
