Peter Andre praises wife Emily as 'beautiful and educated' but refuses to talk about ex Katie Price

The Mysterious Girl singer sat down to speak about the 'women that turned his life around' in a recent interview with The Sunday Times.

Discussing his early career and stint on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, the subject soon turned to the 45-year-old's relationship with his ex wife Katie Price, who he met when he was 31.

When quizzed about their marriage he replied: "I just don't go there. Sorry."

He added: "But we all know, as a young man it’s all about looks, looks, looks.

"You eventually find out that you need a friend, someone who you know and trust inside and out.”

Moving swiftly on to discuss how he met his current wife Emily, 29, when he was 37, Pete explains that he wasn't actually looking for a relationship when he met the young medical student – who was 19 at the time.

He revealed how the children would call her "Aunty Em" as they got to know each other and even asked her father's permission before things became serious.

"I just didn’t think it was right to have a woman coming into their lives unless we were both serious,” he explained.

But the next sentence showed off how much respect he has for his wife, as he labelled her 'beautiful and educated'.

He said: "And when you meet a proper, beautiful, educated lady like Emily, if you want to be taken seriously then you put in 100 per cent straight away."

However, it seems that Emily's caring nature as they dealt with the loss of Pete's older brother  to kidney cancer was what attracted him even more.

He admitted: "I didn’t want to talk or eat, I was just broken by it.

"I was not easy to be with, but the fact that she said, ‘We’ll get through this together,’ I knew meant we’d be together for the rest of our lives."

Pete and Emily got married in 2015, and now have two children together Theodore, 4, and two-year-old Amelia.

The singer also has two children, Junior, 13 and Princess, 11,  from his previous marriage to Katie Price.

Last week it was speculated that Katie had reached out to Peter in a bid to “heal their rift” before the New Year.

A source told Closer Magazine: “She asked Pete to meet up, just the two of them, to hash things out.

“She told him she was happy to extend the olive branch to his wife Emily [MacDonagh] and smooth out any tensions.”

They added: “She hopes she can sort out things with him for the sake of the kids.”

A rep for Katie denied Closer Magazine's claims and said there was “no truth” in the story.
