Peter Andre was born Peter Andrea to mother Thea and father Savvas in Harrow, London in 1973. He later dropped the last letter of his surname to form his stage name.
When he was six, Peter's Greek-Cypriot parents moved to Australia with him and his siblings Andrew, Chris, Danny, Michael and Debbie.
They settled on Queensland's Gold Coast and Peter attended Benowa State High School.
As a teenager, Peter competed on variety show New Faces. Afterwards, he was offered a recording contract.
Peter released his self-titled debut album in 1993. His second record Natural featured his infamous 1996 single Mysterious Girl, which got to No 2 on the UK Top 40.
It finally reached No 1 when it was re-released in 2004.
After his third album Time peaked at No 28 in 1997, Peter Andre took a break from the limelight.
He reappeared as a contestant on ITV reality show I'm A Celebrity in 2004, where he penned his No 3 hit Insania. In the jungle, he hit it off with glamour model Katie Price.
The couple married in September 2005 and had two children together. Their son Junior arrived in June 2005 and daughter Princess made her entrance in June 2007.
While married to Katie, Peter was stepfather to her son Harvey. Harvey - who Katie had with football player Dwight Yorke - is both blind and autistic.
Katie and Peter starred in various reality TV shows together and released joint album A Whole New World. Unfortunately, their love didn't last and they divorced in September 2009.
Peter continued to appear on his own reality programmes until he got into a serious relationship with medical student Emily MacDonagh in 2012.
Emily helped Peter cope when his brother Andrew sadly lost his battle with cancer at the end of that year.
The couple got engaged on New Year's Eve 2014 and welcomed their daughter Amelia a month later.
Aside from his music and fly-on-the-wall ventures, Peter has presented daytime show 60 Minute Makeover and opened his own coffee shop chain New York Coffee Club.
