Peter Andre: We know it's chilly. But where was his six-pack when the lights went on?

Barbara Ellen, The Observer, 9 November 1997

I AM TRAVELLING to Radio One in the back of a white limo with teen pop sensation Peter Andre, his PR, a camera crew, the Observer's photographer, and Andre's road manager. Luckily, the limo is of the stretch variety and, for a heartthrob famed for his abdominal "six-pack", Andre is very slight. Even with his legs and arms flung out as wide as they can go, and wearing a jacket that a small child could use as a Wendy house, he only takes up half an inch of space. Andre is so titchy that I keep worrying he might slip down the back of the seat like loose change. Then I would have to fish him out by his trademark sticky-up fringe, which usually resembles an octopus doing the can-can, but today looks very limp and jet-lagged.
