Peter Andre revealed he has ‘no regrets’ when it comes to his plastic surgery and said he wouldn’t stop his children from doing it.
The Mysterious Girl singer – who is Greek Cypriot – got a nose job almost 20 years ago as a result of low self-esteem and bullying.
As a child growing up in Australia, he endured a lot of racist abuse due to his heritage and the ‘bump on his nose’.
“A lot of the racism targeted at me also involved my nose,” he revealed.
“I was so self-conscious that when things started going well with my music, I’d ask that no pictures of me were taken side on,” he wrote in his column in New magazine.
“I ended up getting surgery because it affected me so much. Looking back, I don’t regret the op but I wish I’d spoken to someone about how I was feeling first.”
He went on to say that, during a YouTube Q&A, fans asked if he would ever stop his children from having plastic surgery.
He shares children Princess, 14, and Junior, 16, with ex Katie Price and shares Theo, four, and Amelia, seven, with wife Emily.
Peter added: “When it comes to the kids, my advice would be that they talk to someone if there was a part of themselves they disliked.

“If they then still felt a certain way about it, and it was affecting their confidence, it could be a conversation.”
He previously revealed that his family were the ‘only ethnic family’ on the Gold Coast when he was growing up and Peter said he was ‘beaten’ and ‘picked on a lot.’
“I had the dark hair, the big nose, the English accent and I stood out,” he told Lorraine Kelly in 2020. “We [him and his brothers and sister] were picked on a lot. Initially, it was racism, which is obviously a form of bullying.
“It wasn’t just calling names, we got beaten, we got beaten pretty bad.”
Meanwhile, Peter’s ex Katie has gone through endless cosmetic procedures.
Her latest one included travelling to Turkey to get full-body liposuction and a facelift.
