A sensational war of words broke out yesterday between Peter Andre and Syco TV, the production company who produce 'X Factor' for Simon Cowell, over a mysterious 'job offer'.
Earlier on in the week, Pete claimed in his magazine column that he had opted to turn down an offer from Fremantle (the co-producers of 'X Factor') to judge the Australian version of the singing contest. He wrote: "I hate turning down such fantastic opportunities – but my children absolutely come first," insisting that he'd only decided to stay in the UK for his kids' benefit.
Meanwhile, a Syco spokesperson has hit back at his claims, saying: "Peter Andre has never been offered any role on the 'X Factor' in any country," with a second adding: "Simon Cowell has no idea that Peter Andre is claiming he was offered a judge’s job." How embarrassing!!!
It doesn't end there, though - Pete's rep responded by insisting he had received a genuine offer, claiming: "We had an email about three weeks ago. It came from Fremantle, who co- produce 'X Factor', asking whether Peter would be involved in Australia’s edition. We had a serious discussion about it. Why on Earth would Peter or any of us make that up?" That's a good question - but I'm starting to wonder why we keep hearing stories about jobs Pete has been offered, then nothing comes of them. Whatever happened to the Channel 4 chat show?
