Peter Andre admits ‘people say I’m punching with Emily’ as he talks ‘stupid’ comments

Peter Andre has revealed people “always” tell him he’s “punching” with his wife Emily as he weighs in on Love Island star Luca Bish’s comments that Mark Wright is also punching with his wife Michelle Keegan.

Calling the comments “stupid”, Pete writes in his weekly OK! column: “Love Island star Luca Bish recently claimed Mark Wright is “punching” with his wife Michelle Keegan during an episode of the show.

“A bit harsh if you ask me. Mark is a good looking fella. Together he and Michelle make a great looking couple.

“I’m not sure why Luca said that, but hey we all say stupid things. People tell me all the time that I’m punching with Emily.”

Adding that his wife of seven years is a “beauty”, Pete continues: “I don’t mind as I think it’s a compliment. I love it, and let’s be honest she is a beauty!”

Luca, 23, made the comment during a recent episode as he discussed whether he was also “punching” with partner Gemma Owen with fellow Islanders Adam Collard and Paige Thorne.

Luca started the conversation by mentioning Mark and Michelle, both 35, as he said she was well out of Mark's league and that he was "punching” – which the trio all agreed to.

Meanwhile, the fish monger got into a heated exchange with Paige as he claimed he was evenly matched with dressage rider Gemma, and not punching above his weight by trying to date her.

Commenting that it was a "good thing", Paige turned her attention towards Luca as she light-heartedly told him he too was punching above his weight.

Luca immediately replied: "No I f****ing ain't."

Presenter Mark later posted a hilarious reaction to Luca’s comments following the episode of the ITV2 dating show.

Sharing a snap of himself with a puzzled face just after waking up in bed, Mark, who is currently in Australia visiting Michelle, wrote: “8:30am in Sydney…. minding my own business (literally sleeping) Waking up like…. What did I do? #luca.”

Mark recently flew to Sydney to be with his wife of seven years. Actress Michelle has been busy filming an exciting new BBC drama called Ten Pounds Poms.

The series follows a group of Brits as they leave the UK in the 1950s after the war and embark on a new adventure Down Under.

The couple will no doubt be looking forward to their return to the UK after the renovations on their £1.3 million home in Essex were recently completed.
