Peter Andre has used his column in New! magazine to slam rumours that his split from Katie Price is a publicity stunt.
Writing from Cyprus where he is spending time with his brothers, Pete said: "I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight about one thing. You may have read or heard that this is a publicity stunt, but I can assure you it’s not. How anyone could think I would pretend to split up from my wife to grab headlines is beyond me. It’s just sick."
Pete seemed to hint that the pair might reconcile when he wrote: "Everything is up in the air at the moment but I am writing this from Cyprus as I came here to get away and spend some time with my family."
Both Katie and Peter are expected to return to London on Thursday to discuss custody arrangements for their three children. The glamour model has been in the Maldives with Junior and Princess since the split.
