So with things looking like they're going well for him, his recent X Factor comment seems a bit odd.
So Pete said in his column recently, "I was asked recently to be a judge on the Australian version of The X Factor but I had to turn it down, as it would mean being away from the kids for about four months. I hate turning down fantastic opportunities like this and I would have loved to have taken part, but my children absolutely come first and there is no way I could be apart from them for that long. It would kill me.”
Ok, we guess that seems believable enough - kinda...
But then a spokesperson from Syco - Simon Cowell's company who co-produce the show came out and said, "Peter has never been offered any role on X Factor in any country."
Cringe. That's mildly embarrassing.
So what's gone on here then - a simple case of crossed wires or a desperate bid to still seem wanted and relevant?
Pete's agent Claire came out and said, "We had an email into our office about three weeks ago. It came from Fremantle, who co-produce The X Factor, asking whether Pete would be involved in Australia’s edition. We had a serious discussion about it. Why on Earth would Pete or any of us make that up?"
Well - being linked to one of the biggest TV franchises in the world must be tempting...
