Peter Andre's cha cha saw the whole nation swoon over the kind of hip swiveling steps we haven't clapped eyes on since the video for his hit single 'Mysterious Girl'.

He jokes that he's got the moves of a man half his age, so it's little wonder he's the talent show's current favourite to take home the famous glitter ball trophy. But he's not just our fave, as he reveals his wife Emily MacDonagh is his number 1 fan. Aww!

And when we catch up with the man himself, he tells us, "Emily said to me, 'You may be 42, but you can still shake like you're 20!', quickly adding, 'I didn't mean for that to sound quite as rude as it did!'"

Pete is clearly besotted with his wife, and happily gushes about their dreams to extend their brood.

The couple, who wed three months ago at the gorgeous Mamhead House in Exeter, have a one-year-old daughter Amelia, and Peter also has daughter Princess, eight, and son Junior, 10, with his ex-wife, Katie Price.

"We're not trying for another baby at the moment but a baby before next Christmas would really be something. I'd start right now, right this second. After this interview, of course," he laughs.

On the baby's sex, he adds, "I wanted a boy before Amelia was born, but now we've had Amelia, she's the coolest baby and just so sweet, so I'd be happy with another girl".

When we mention the 'C' word – the infamous Strictly Curse – Pete, who has double-dated with his Strictly dance partner Janette Manara and her fiancé Aljaz Skorjanec, tells us he's a firm non-believer.

"If you're the type of person who wants to go and have fun, then you'll go and have fun. But if you're the type of person who doesn't have that in their mind and doesn't want to go and do that, then why would you do it?" Pete says earnestly.

"I'm completely besotted with my wife. We're in love and she's my best friend. We have a lot of banter. And fancying each other like mad helps too."

Peter's album, Come Fly With Me is out 16 October on East Records/Warner Music.
