"Offically Divorced (Took Only 46 Seconds)"
Peter Andre has admitted that he is grateful for the comments that Katie Price made about his emotional TV interview with Kay Burley.
The popstar broke down during an appearance on Sky News earlier this month after Burley asked him about Price's new husband Alex Reid and custody of his children.
Price later claimed that she felt sorry for Andre after watching the footage and described her ex-partner as a "fantastic" father.
Responding to the glamour girl's remarks in an interview with New, Andre commented: "That's very nice. I appreciate her saying that."
The 'Behind Closed Doors' singer also suggested that Burley could have handled the interview differently.
He said: "At the end of the day, I could never predict that she was going to touch such a raw nerve, and I'm sure that she didn't anticipate that happening either. But I think she should have left it when she saw I was struggling."
Peter Andre is being lined up to play Danny Zuko in the West End production of Grease, it has been reported.
The Mysterious Girl star told friends he's a big fan of the long-running musical and would like to take on the lead role made famous by John Travolta.
Peter Andre is reportedly a favourite to play Danny in Grease
According to The Sun, theatre bosses have contacted his management after deciding Peter is 'the one they want'.
A friend told the paper: "Pete has had lots of offers from musicals but Grease is one of his favourites. He loves the character of Danny and he's confident that he will be able to play him - even if only for a short stint."
If Peter does take to the stage, he'll join a star-studded list of names who have played Danny since the musical premiered on Broadway in 1972, including Richard Gere, David Hasselhoff and the late Patrick Swayze.
Former Hear'Say singer Noel Sullivan is currently playing the part in the West End show, at London's Piccadilly Theatre.
Peter Andre wants his own chat show.
The 'Behind Closed Doors' singer has added to speculation he is being lined up to replace talk show host Paul O'Grady on his Channel 4 show and has admitted it would be his "dream job" to have his own programme like the 54-year-old comedian.
He said: "I can't really comment on this just yet, but I will say that I loved filling in for him back in November. It was such a laugh and I've always hoped to do more television presenting in the future. In fact, it would be my dream job."
Peter's view of TV presenters hasn't been that positive recently, following a tearful interview on Sky News earlier this month.
However, Peter has been taking tips from 'The One Show' host Christine Bleakley and Adrian Chiles - who he has praised for their "light-hearted" interview techniques.
He said in his new! magazine column: "I really enjoyed being on 'The One Show' last week. Adrian and Christine are such a laugh and their questions are quite light-hearted. I'm wary about interviews after what happened on Sky News, so I was like, 'Thank God for that' when they went easy on me. We had a chat about when it was OK for men to show their emotions and I said it was OK for men to cry over their kids, but not when watching a rom-com!"

|STATEMENT FROM PETER||7/17/09|
I want to let you all know that any quotes in the press are not from me or my family.
We are mortified that these untruths are being printed. I have never referred to Katie as a tart, and I never would, and my family would never speak about the relationship or about Katie.
I have spoken in my New Magazine column only, nowhere else -
