Is Peter Andre the vainest celebrity on Strictly Come Dancing EVER?

“He practically lives in the make-up room”

It’s pretty clear that Peter Andre cares about the way he looks – the perfect tan, not a hair out of place, and neater than neat eyebrows. But is he starting to take it all a bit too far?

Apparently, since joining* Strictly Come Dancing,* the Aussie singer hasn’t stopped looking in the mirror.

Crew members have even dubbed him “the vainest celebrity in the show’s history,” and deemed him more high maintenance than the show’s female stars.

A* Strictly* insider told* The Sun*: “Peter practically lives in the make-up room and wears a huge amount for a man. He asks to pile on the concealer, highlighters and bronzers and always asks if the make-up artists can give him cheekbones. He’s just as fussy with his hair and spends ages getting it right.”

But, despite spending 90 per cent of his time staring at himself in a mirror, Peter is hot favourite to win this year’s competition, and topped the leaderboard with his first dance at the weekend. So he must be doing something right.
