Peter Andre: 'Strictly Come Dancing has asked me to take part for the last three years'

Peter Andre on Strictly Come Dancing has been a long time coming - the star has been asked to take part for the last three series.

The singer, who was confirmed for the BBC show earlier this week, told Free Radio that he's "incredibly excited and incredibly nervous".

Explaining how the producers "have been kind enough to ask [him] for the last three years", Andre admitted that he thought his window of opportunity had come and gone.

"I remember the last year when they asked, we couldn't do it because we still had the reality show and these sorts of things we were committed to, and you need a certain amount of hours a week to film, etc," he said.

"So I said to [manager] Claire, 'They're not gonna ask me next year, they won't'. I said, 'The show's too big now, it's become the biggest show on TV and they don't need to ask anyone,

Renee Zellweger Is Now Completely Unrecognizable

Renee Zellweger Is Now Completely Unrecognizable
Yes, this is really Renee Zellweger.

It's safe to say Renee Zellweger's looking a little different these days.

The 45-year-old actress made an appearance at Elle's 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration in Beverly Hills, Calif. Monday night, and her nearly unrecognizable appearance is shocking to say the least.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you -- this really is what the Bridget Jones' Diary star currently looks like.

Photos: Most Shocking Celeb Transformations

Though many speculate that Renee's new look is the result of plastic surgery -- pointing to her completely wrinkle-free face -- she has never addressed the reports.

She has, however, commented on the criticism that she's too thin.

"When you read reports that you are starving yourself or that you are anorexic it's very unfair and disappointing," she told the U.K.'s Daily Express last November. "It's not very pleasant to read reports which say you've gone too far or

Renee Zellweger: Third Bridget Jones Movie Would Be
If Renee Zellweger is up for doing another Bridget Jones's Diary movie, what's the hold up? "It would be fun," Zellweger says. Sadly, the Chicago star insists she isn't in the loop on the third film's progress.

Hugh Grant recently revealed that he has pulled out of the project. "The book's excellent, by the way, but the script is completely different—or the script as I last saw it a few years ago," Grant said in a recent Free Radio interview. "And in the...

Hugh Grant Flees From Bridget Jones 3

Hey, remember how they’re making another Bridget Jones movie? No? Neither did I, until this very moment. Some of that might have to do with the fact that the last film, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, was a sort of poorer cousin to the very good Bridget Jones’s Diary. While author Helen Fielding decided to return to her popular series one more time in the book Mad About the Boy, I think many of us simply forgot about the character. Hollywood, however, has not, and still plans to make a Bridget Jones 3 – but they’re going to have to do it without Hugh Grant.

When asked about reprising his role as Daniel Cleaver in Bridget Jones 3, Hugh Grant informed Free Radio (via Cinema Blend) that he will not appear in the film. The reason for this appears to be script-related:

Then titled Bridget Jones's Baby, the movie was said to focus...
