Peter Andre and Katie Price are mum and dad to Junior and Princess

Peter Andre looks happier than he has for years.

The singer took pretty medical student Emily Macdonagh to Cyprus on their first holiday as a proper couple and she was snapped tenderly nuzzling his neck.

However, there was one person who was determined to ruin the romantic break: Pete's ex-wife Katie Price, 34.

The former glamour model became obsessed after hearing that Pete had taken Emily to the holiday home he'd built for her during their marriage - so she started bombarding him with angry texts... at all times of day and night!

Although Pete did his best to ignore the texts, Emily, who turns 23 on 16 August, struggled to put up with the barrage of messages.

'Pete's used to Katie's random outbursts. He knows just how emotional she can be, but this was brand-new territory for Emily,' says a source close to the 39-year-old singer.

'She was annoyed that his ex was interrupting their first holiday together and that his mobile phone was beeping nonstop with new messages.

'It caused rows between them, which of course is exactly what Katie wanted.

'At one point, Emily actually told Pete that if his phone woke her up again, she'd "throw it into the sea".'

When Now approached Katie Price'steam, a spokesman said: 'There's no truth in accusations that she's texted Peter on the subject of Emily.'

However, when we pointed out that Pete hadn't revealed the content of the messages but had been upset by the frequency, the rep refused to comment further.
