    Peter Andre worried he would be branded "boring" if he admitted he was teetotal

    The 51-year-old pop star gave up alcohol more than a decade ago, but he kept the decision quiet for some time and often made "excuses" about why he wasn't drinking to cover up the fact that he'd decided to give up booze.


    In his column for OK! magazine, Peter explained: "I don't drink anymore myself ... We're at a time where it's no longer 'uncool' not to drink.

    "I remember when I stopped drinking, I always felt I had to make excuses. I'd say things like, 'Oh, I'm driving' or 'I'm on antibiotics,' because I was worried people would find me boring.

    "There's nothing wrong with having a drink, but, for me, I just felt like I didn't need it."

    Peter's doctor wife Emily is also teetotal and she previously admitted her decision to give up drinking for good during her first pregnancy had an impact on her husband.

    She told The Sun newspaper: "I stopped drinking when I got pregnant with Millie [who was born in 2014] ... it was just because I realised when I was pregnant that a) I didn't like the taste, b) didn't like the hangovers anymore and just that I am quite sociable anyway so don't really need it.

    "So when I had her I was breastfeeding, so wasn't drinking then and I just never started again and then he [Peter] felt 'I won't sit at home and drink wine with a meal if you are not having it', so he kind of stopped as well and neither of us have drunk now for ages."

    Emily added that she only had one sip of Champagne at her wedding when the couple tied the knot in 2015 and that was her only taste of alcohol in the last decade.

    She said: "I wouldn't even have a glass of champagne, at our own wedding I had a sip of champagne to toast with but literally I have had no other sips of alcohol in 10 years.

    "None of the kids have ever seen us drink because even the oldest kids would have been still quite young when it stopped. It's not really a big deal in the house, it doesn't really come up in conversation much. It's just how it is."
