Peter Andre asks the Australian embassy to let him visit his parents

‘I miss them too much’: Peter Andre reveals he begged the Australian embassy to let him visit his elderly parents during the pandemic

Peter Andre has revealed he begged the Australian embassy to let him visit his elderly parents due to the country’s strict travel rules during the coronavirus pandemic.

In his new column, the musician, 47, insisted it’s his ‘number one priority’ to travel to see his dad Savvas, 87, and mum Thea, 84, who currently ‘isn’t very well’.

The father-of-four said: ‘I actually contacted the Australian Embassy because there are special circumstances whereby family members can fly over, but sadly I don’t fit the criteria.’

TV personality Peter expressed his hopes to meet up with his beloved relatives as he added to new! magazine: ‘My number one priority this year is to go and see my mum and dad in Australia, as I miss them too much. 

‘I’m anxiously awaiting the borders opening as it’s been upsetting not seeing them, especially as my mum isn’t very well.’

The artist initially shared his fears to The Sun as he added: ‘Dad was telling me that they said on the news that it might even be the end of next year they allow international travel.

‘It really worries me because mum and dad are in their late 80s – or dad certainly is. When they were in their 40s and I was a teenager, not seeing them for a year, you just knew you’d see them a year later and they’d be fine.

In December, it was announced the Australian government has extended its ban on international travel, with residents only allowed to leave the country for specific reasons.

Restrictions on international travel departures and cruise ships in Australia will remain in place until at least mid-March.

The move comes after the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee deemed COVID-19 a significant public health risk internationally due to the rapid spread of the virus in many other countries. 

Health Minister Greg Hunt said the disease was continuing to spread overseas at a rapid rate.

Businessman Peter also discussed the prospect of welcoming a third child with his wife Emily, 31, this year as he ‘doesn’t want to be changing nappies when he’s 50’.

The couple share daughter Amelia, six, and Theo, four, while the Mysterious Girl hitmaker also has son Junior, 15, and daughter Princess, 13, with ex-wife Katie Price. 

Elsewhere in his post, the I’m A Celeb star said his ‘biggest wish is that Junior does well in his GCSEs’, days before Boris Johnson announced the new lockdown, which means exams could be cancelled in the summer for a second year running.
