Peter Andre has reportedly landed a 1.5 million-pound cookery book deal putting him on par with his estranged wife Katie Price, who has amassed great money publishing her own tome.
The singer’s progress may be envied by the hottie, say sources. “This will really drive Katie round the bend – Pete’s empire just keeps on growing. Kate prized herself on having best-selling books, it was one of the things that made her more of a housewife than a party girl,” the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
The insider added: “But now Pete is riding high and more and more success is coming his way since their split.”
The book is supposed to be perfect as a single man’s guide to prepare easy meals for the family.
A source said: “It will start with barbecue food – which all men will love – and ways to spruce up a juicy piece of meat. Then it will have delicious pastas and soups. Trust Pete to keep it authentic with some old Greek family recipes that his fans won’t be able to resist. He’s even considering having a wok section with oriental recipes inspired from his recent trip to Asia.”
Andre is also set to release his comeback single Behind Closed Doors this week.
Meanwhile, Katie’s latest novel Sapphire was a best seller last week.
