Peter Andre shares health battle he faced while filming Mysterious Girl video

Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Peter Andre has revealed the dark truth behind the video to his hit single Mysterious Girl.

The singer was just 23 years old when the song was released in 1996, shooting him to superstardom in the UK as fans went wild for his rippling abs.

However, Peter, 48, has now admitted that while he felt great at the time his audience-pleasing appearance left him struggling to stay healthy inwardly.

Talking to Loose Women host Ruth Langsford and panellists Coleen Nolan, Linda Robson and Janet Street-Porter on Wednesday, Peter opened up about his personal struggles with his body as he promoted his new healthy living app #It'sFine.

The reality TV star confessed that while he looked at the peak of physical fitness and felt good, the strict regime he was following and having zero body fat meant that he wasn't as healthy as he appeared.

He said: "At that period of time I felt great I was watching everything I ate I was doing everything you're told you're supposed to do.

"But I was getting sick a lot and getting colds all the time, my brothers would say 'what, you're sick again?'

"Then when I stepped away from that image and my 30s came, even late 20s, I went the opposite way and put on three stone."

Peter then confessed that it wasn't until his 40s he really found his happy place and body confidence.

He continued: "For my 40s, which is the most comfortable I think I've ever been, I found a way to eat what I want but keep active."

Crediting his new joint venture with his business partner Ben Smith, Peter says the app has given him the knowledge to be a healthy weight without putting too much pressure on himself and still getting the body he wants.

He said: "I have what I want but counter it by balancing it with healthy foods and exercise. I feel so much better now."

Peter also admitted how proud he feels of his son for following in his footsteps and embarking on his own career in music – at the exact same age his dad started out.
