Peter Andre reveals that he found out about his ex-wife’s engagement with Carl Woods while the rest of the world did. Andre, 48, married and had two children with Katie, 42, after meeting on the sets of I’m A Celebrity in 2004.
However, the couple was divorced by 2009. Katie even accused Peter of “using her for fame.” She opened up about the divorce while speaking to Dame Esther Rantzen and Adrian Mills on their That’s After Life podcast. According to The Sun, Dame Esther said: “You were making a reality show with Peter Andre, and I think you and Pete actually split. Right, you want to know why I think that was?”
“Yeah, I’d love to know – I wanna know. I never did anything wrong,”
“And you know how it is with television – the viewers always like the underdog – and it began to look as if Pete was in love with you and trying to do what you wanted and nothing was quite right for you.”
“I totally agree, especially towards the end. But the way I look at it, it happened. You can’t change the past. But it’s been a horrific journey since then.”
Katie also revealed how she begged doctors not to let her kill herself after checking into the rehab facility as she had been suffering from “severe trauma.”
Katie also spoke to Esther about her recovery. “I’m still here. I didn’t actually push the button to commit suicide, that’s why I went to get help, and I will never, ever let anyone or anything around me ever get me in that state again.”
Things are different for Katie now. She is happy and loved-up with her fiance and former Love Islander Carl Woods. He has proposed, and she’s said yes.
Peter Andre is ‘really happy’ for the couple, but he also noted that he was not told the news before the public found out. He didn’t know Katie was engaged, but he expected the couple might get engaged soon, and he thinks it’s great. He thinks love is a beautiful thing and you can’t ask for anything more.
