PETER Andre has admitted that he refuses to go topless when at the beach after losing his legendary six-pack.
The Mysterious Girl singer, 46, has found it hard to come to terms with how his body has changed over the years because of what he used to look like in the 90’s.

The dad-of-four still struggles with insecurities surrounding his body and it’s only in the last few years that he’s felt at peace with his body and mind.
Peter told Closer Magazine: “The one thing I still struggle with is my confidence and body image.
“I’m 46 and I’m in shape, but I’m still not comfortable walking around the beach with my shirt off.
“There’s always that worry or fear – I guess I built a rod for my own back in my 20’s with that!

“There’s an immense amount of pressure in society with looks, I don’t want my kids to suffer from that. I want them to love themselves.”
Despite his confidence issues, the singer does feel “completely content” with his life which he shares with his wife, Emily, 29 and his kids, Junior, 13, Princess, 11, Amelia, 5 and Theodore, 2.
Speaking previously about his exercise regime, Peter said he prefers hard work to going under the surgeon’s knife.
He said: “Forget liposuction and steroids, I like good old-fashioned Rocky-style training.”

He told New! magazine: “Since the arrival of [Prince] Harry and Meghan’s son Archie, I’ve started thinking: ‘Should we try for another one?’”
However, Emily made it clear that she wasn’t as keen as he is for another baby, and joked that she had hit him with a sex ban.
“Emily wants me to sleep on the other side of the bed now though,” he added.
