A Facebook group has seen over 3,900 people call for Sky News presenter Kay Burley to be sacked for pushing Peter Andre to tears during an interview on Tuesday.

The anchor had probed Katie Price’s ex-husband on how he felt about the glamour girl’s wedding on Monday to Celebrity Big Brother winner Alex Reid and the future custody of his children with Jordan.

Peter’s agent Claire Powell later phoned Kay to complain about the way she treated the reality TV star.

A source told The Mirror: “Claire felt it was a blatant hatchet job. She kept saying, ‘How can you do that? Peter’s a great dad’.”

Kay wrote on her Sky News blog to apologise to Peter and claimed: “When I went to check during an ad break that he was OK, he sobbed on my shoulder in the green room.

“As we chatted he said he was relieved he’d finally vented some of the pent-up tension he’d been feeling.”

Viewers have reportedly contacted Sky and Ofcom about the interview, the regulator will look at the complaints before they decide if they need to investigate the incident.

Sky News told The Mirror: “Kay later spoke with Peter off-camera and they parted amicably.”
