SINGER and TV star Peter Andre will co-host a new show on GB News throughout December, it has been announced.

Andre, 50, will present Saturday Morning Live with Ellie Costello from 10am-12pm from this Saturday after making his presenting debut on GB News in May.

He said: “I can’t wait. Ellie and I got on so well in May, and although I was quite nervous because breakfast is such a tough gig, I really loved it.

“Viewers are really included in GB News programmes, so there’s an intimacy to your relationship with the audience that’s rare in television.

“I got wonderfully kind feedback from everyone, so it’ll be a joy to join the GB News family throughout Christmas.”

The 50-year-old weighed in on debates while presenting in May, including the “scandal” surrounding former This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield and his affair with a “much younger” ITV colleague.

While interviewing a publicity coach, Andre said: “ITV have been very much at the forefront of promoting ‘be kind’ and this seems to be a big question mark around the mental health of the young lover.”

He also reacted to the Government refusing to provide WhatsApp messages as evidence in the Covid inquiry.

Andre told a political commentator on the show: “Obviously there has been a lot of leaks to journalists so the question is, should the prime minister have an element of privacy in regards to the WhatsApp messages?

“He is in a position of authority so it’s very questionable.”

There were calls on social media for Andre to be made a permeant fixture after the broadcast.
