I was sad to hear what happened to his brother. RIP.

But I am baffled as to why Peter Andre would want to make a TV show when such a personal family thing is taking place. Surely you would cancel all TV commitments?

does seem odd, I'd be taking some time out but maybe he can't afford to and needs the money. I'm not sure how his tour is doing, I don't think his lifestyle comes cheap

For what it's worth, I think sometimes people find it easier to throw themselves into work anyway. Performing, recording, and being filmed isn't what I'd want to do, but Peter Andre clearly enjoys the attention (that sounds judgemental; I don't mean it in a bad way), performing and he clearly thrives on being on stage, seeing everyone and singing, so if it makes him happy and gives him an escape, fair enough. I thought I wouldn't want to do anything at all after my mum died, but I went back to kickboxing two days later, only missed a training session on the day of my mum's funeral, and just threw myself into sport as an escape and somewhere to be happy.

I actually cried watching the last episode of his show. He seemed very stressed and down, I think he was talking about how it's an escape for a while and then he goes back to reality and it's always there.

Is there anything he cannot do? When he goes for it in one of those photos (fittingly titled mean and moody) he blows away Derek Zoolander in the "Blue Steel" stakes.

Get the look......

Well done Emily.

Well, yeah. Some do reckon opposites attract.

Think she seems a nice girl though. Who knows how it will pan out.

Honestly, I'm not even being sarcastic here. They just seem worlds apart. But as you say, opposites attract, and they do have the benefit of knowing each other 'off-camera' for a couple of years so...

Oh yes, I can just imagine the two of them sitting on the sofa discussing molecular biology or somesuch(Clearly I am not a Bsc so I have no idea what she's been studying)

I couldn't help but at the MY Emily though. It really is all about him isn't it?

She's been studying for a medical degree. I took the 'my' as a form of endearment rather than taking any credit for her achievement, supported by the fact he cropped himself from the picture on his Twitter account to make sure she was centre stage.

I agree they seem an unlikely couple but there must be a deep attraction for both of them, all credit to him for for not being intimidated by her brains.

I wish he'd have a shave. He looks so soapy in those pics.

Given the utterly thick statements he's made about medical issues, that's a given!!

Maybe she's fishing for a job in Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

Ah now we know why Petey is with her, she's only become a Scientist, they know all sorts of stuff from how to dissect frogs to Dr Brian Coxs phone number.
Petey will make sure she specialises in cryogenics so he can be defrosted in like 40,000 years when he will be truly appreciated, probably be leader of the Morlocks all things being fair and all.

I am completely baffled as to why you would think he needed "credit" for this

Just a turn of phrase, I was forgetting how carefully you have to choose your words on here

From experience I'd say some men can be insecure about their partner being better educated and having a demanding career. I doubt Emily will be a 'stay at home' wife so if he's really as jealous and controlling as some posters here like to make out he hasn't made life easy for himself so to quote some Madness lyrics 'it must be love....'

It's like the narration on that show of his where every single thing he does is an occasion for celebration! Pete gets up, makes toast, praise Jesus, Pete has a cold but bravely goes to the shop, praise Jesus, on it goes. Praise Jesus. <- saintly face.

Turn of phrase or not, the fact that you considered his having a clever woman (emphasis on the "clever") as a GF as praiseworthy absolutely reeks of desperation and - in truth - makes me really sad for the young, educated, ambitious women of today. The inference being that they should be grateful that someone wants to go out with them, despite their brains.

So you think the children would have been better of with two parents who hate each other?

That is a stupid thing to berate PA for. Why should he not leave an unhappy relationship - whoever caused it? Most children can cope better with the split than they can the acrimony that precedes it.
Did anyone see the episode - last series I think it was - where PA was having breakfast with the two kids and Junior came straight out and asked 'why doesn't mummy want to marry you any more?' - the look on father-of-the-year's face was classic. Then he replied with some inane remark and Junior asked him why HE left their house, PA replied that he didn't, and both kids shouted 'yes you did!'. Those dont look like damaged kids to me, and they clearly put daddy on the spot - I was surprised Claire-baby did not edit that nice little family moment out of the episode.

I wasn't saying anything remotely like that. Posters were commenting on the disparity between them and there have been silly insinuations that it's a showmance to make him look good. I disagree. I think that being with someone who will challenge him and who he will need to give a lot of support to (first few years of training to be a doctor can be physically & mentally draining) show that he's not the egotist you make him out to be.

I believe that's exactly what you were saying. Whether you meant to or not, is another question. You said that PA deserves credit for not being intimidated by a clever woman. The inference being that he is doing her a favour.

And, your pesky poor choice of words again? Where have I made him out to be an egotist?

Changa, If you inferred that I was saying Pete is doing Emily a favour by dating her, my apologies but you couldn't be more wrong. I think they make a complementary couple and it's good to see him in such a healthy, happy relationship. Very glad that you don't consider him an egotist, I'd formed the mistaken impression from your previous posting history that you did. Good to have cleared that up.

Perhaps I do consider him to be an egotist, but I certainly haven't said whether or not I do in this particular discussion or in this thread, so you must have gone very far back in my posting history previously to try and found out if this was true. Why would you do that? An attempt at cheap points scoring perhaps?

I always find it bizarre when FMs check back on other FMs posting history. Weirdly stalkerish yes, but it shows such a terrible desperation to be proved right. You see, this thread isn't about me, nor was our discussion, until you decided to do some peculiar check on me.

You still haven't cleared up your strange assertion that PA deserves "credit" for being willing to go out with an academically gifted young woman. Instead you seem more interested in my posting history.

If you're going to make claims on here, you should expect them to be debated and discussed and be ready to back them up and not try and divert the discussion by attempting to put words in my mouth, checking up on me and misrepresenting me.

You have cleared nothing up at all.

Changa, if you do consider him an egotist I'm at a loss to know why you'd take such offence at my saying so other than to manufacture a completely pointless argument. I'm not the one making this personal. Anyone who's read the numerous PA threads will confirm that certain posters crop up time and time again making pretty much the same points and it's difficult not to form an impression of them. I certainly haven't been trawling through your posting history and have no interest in doing so.

For the sake of clarity, I'll rephrase the comment you appear to have such difficulty with which I think was 'all credit to him for for not being intimidated by her brains' to 'Good on yer Pete, she's an absolutely cracking girl. Glad to see you don't have any ridiculous hang-ups about dating a partner who's more intelligent than you are.'
