Peter Andre: ‘I admit it – I lost my temper’

Peter Andre has spoken of a furious phone row with the new boyfriend of ex-wife Katie Price over access to his children.

The glamour model, also known as Jordan, claimed on her Twitter page that Pete used threatening language in the conversation with cage fighter Alex Reid.

But Peter denied her claims, although he said he did lose his temper after not being allowed to speak to son Junior, four, and two-year-old daughter Princess Tiaamii.

Speaking on ITV1’s This Morning he said: “For five days I was not allowed to speak to my kids. And then the night before last I got on the phone saying, ‘I want to speak to my kids’, and I was handed the phone to this man who said he’s ‘the man of the house’ now and he refused [to let] me to speak to my children.

“Now, I’m not perfect, I am human, I am a father and I don’t know any father that would not react to some man saying, ‘no, you’re not speaking to them’, and I lost my temper – I admit it.”

Peter denied Katie’s claims that he had used aggressive language towards Alex.

“I didn’t say… not even close to most of those words and I look at it and think it’s a bit cheeky. I could’ve handled it maybe if it was kept private, but this man should not have come out there trying to act like Dad and not let me speak to my kids.

“That’s probably why I over-reacted,” he added.
