Peter André (born Peter James Andrea, in Harrow, London, UK in 1973) is a singer. He was raised in Australia, and is of Cypriot descent. The UK is where he found the most success. At first he was on the Australian soap opera Neighbours before turning to music, the show spawning many other actor/actress turned singers such as Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Natalie Imbruglia, Holly Valance and Delta Goodrem.

In the UK he began his music career in 1996, first having a top 20 single called Only One, reaching number #16, but then gained massive success with the song Mysterious Girl (featuring Bubbler Ranx), reaching #2 in the UK singles chart. He then had a #1 album Natural, and two #1 singles Flava and I Feel You. However, after attempting to transform in to an R&B artist rather than a pop artist, and releasing a few more singles, he didn't have as much success as previously, with his second album, Time, only reaching #28. In 1998 he released his last single (a cover of the song "Kiss the Girl" from Disney's The Little Mermaid) before taking a long break from the charts.

During this break, he went back to his native Cyprus, and no one had heard from him until very recently, being on the British reality TV series I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, and flirting with model Jordan. He then re-released his breakthrough hit Mysterious Girl in 2004, finally reaching #1 after 8 long years since the original breakthrough release of the song (it had actually been released once before the breakthrough, but with very little success reaching #53 in 1995 without the rapping of Bubbler Ranx). It had also been 6 years since his last chart appearance. To prove the song, his success and his attempts to resurrect a music career were not a one hit wonder this time around, he released a new song Insania, which was another big hit, reaching #3 in the UK in June 2004. A new album, titled The Long Road Back, was also released that month, however only reached #44. The next single from the album was The Right Way, which features Jordan in the video, and that only reached #14 in September 2004.

André and Jordan became the parents of a 5lb 13oz boy, Junior, on June 13, 2005. On September 10, 2005, they were married at Highclere Castle, Newbury, Berkshire.
