Peter Andre is known for being one of the nicest guys in show-business – but the singer has faced a bit of flack recently after claims he is secretly a massive diva.

Yup, after a ‘rider’ was released from a recent gig, the Mysterious Girl star apparently requested 41 pricey items on top of his $ 53,000 (AUD) appearance fee.

Reportedly included in the lengthy list of demands was the ‘best white wine’ available, as well as 15 medium-sized black or navy hand towels, and a three-course dinner for his crew members.

‘When we do our big arena tours an agent sends out a rider, everyone who does music has it.’

Joking about the huge wine request, the dad-of four said: ‘The funniest thing is I don’t drink.

‘When we’re working with the band, and there’s a lot of them and they’re working 12 hours, I like to look after them. [The negotiating of requests] is usually done by agents.’

According to The Sun, Pete – who shares kids Junior, 12, and Princess, 10, with ex Katie Price, and Amelia, 3, and one-year-old  Theodore with wife, Emily – also demanded a selection of assorted Cadbury chocolates, chopped ginger, chewing gum and manuka honey.

The dad-of-four continued: ‘Of all the stuff I ask for I might use honey and ginger for my throat. I laughed about it and thought “if people are actually going to believe if it’s not the right wine I won’t do a performance”.

‘I am the least diva you’ll ever meet in your life!’

Before adding: ‘There’s no point in going online and being defensive. But, generally, everyone who performs has a rider – it’s standard thing, agents will put in what they think you’ll like.’

That settles, that! Now, where we can we get a job with Pete’s crew?
