Peter Andre has made his presenting debut on the GB News breakfast show.
The singer swapped his microphone for an autocue on Wednesday to present the top news stories of the day alongside co-host Ellie Costello.
The 50-year-old weighed in on debates 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.
The Mysterious Girl singer first announced he would be appearing on the show during a video shared to Twitter.
He said: “I’m going to be hosting the GB News breakfast show with the lovely Ellie Costello tomorrow and Thursday from 6am to 9.30am.
“I’m going to be sharing my views on what is going on in the world and I’d love to hear from you too so please get in touch with me and the team…See you bright and early.”
Andre appeared in the ITV reality series I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004, losing to former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona, who became the first queen of the jungle.
