Peter Andre heartbroken as he can't hug son Junior due to COVID-19

Peter Andre has been heartbroken by not being able to hug his son.
The 47-year-old star revealed that he has not been allowed to embrace 15-year-old Junior, who he shares with his ex-wife Katie Price, after an outbreak of coronavirus at his school has forced him to self-isolate.
The 'Mysterious Girl' singer admits that he can't wait to cuddle Junior again and doesn't care if he finds it awkward.
Writing in his New! magazine column, Peter explained: "At the time of writing this Junior is about to finish self-isolating after a couple of pupils in his year at school tested positive for coronavirus.
"He hasn't been able to sit next to us at dinner and I haven't hugged him in so long, which is so hard. I don't know if he's loved that or hated it, but I can't wait to give him a big squeeze!
"He's going to say I'm cringe but who cares? He's my boy."
Peter recently revealed that he wants his 13-year-old daughter Princess, who he also shares with Katie, to be a contestant on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.
The star competed on the 2004 series of the hit ITV reality show where he met and fell in love with Katie in the Australian jungle and revealed that he would fully support Princess if she went on the programme.
Peter said: "My daughter Bista has said that she would love to go on 'I'm A Celeb...'. It was one of the best experiences of my life, so I'd love to see her on it one day. As long as it's not 'Love Island' – unless she presents it, of course!"
