Singer and TV personality Peter Andre has warned his social media after he had a very near miss with a venomous jellyfish during a recent trip to Australia.

Peter, who jetted back to his homeland to spend time with his family, shared a photo of the bluebottle jellyfish washed up on the beach. He wrote, 'Nearly...... the last time I got stung by one of these was horrible. Just missed it today. #surfersparadise #beach #bluebottle' [sic]

Fans of the singer were quick to comment on Peter's snap, with many detailing their own experiences with the bluebottle jellyfish.

One user wrote, 'Lucky miss!!...I had a nasty sting from them once, thankfully you don’t have to pee on yourself, but running it under warm water wasn’t nice 😖😖 x have a fab holiday!', with another writing, 'Been stung twice and was horrendous!!!!! X'. [sic]

It comes after a number of beaches in Australia's northeast coast were closed after over 4,000 people were stung by the bluebottle jellyfish, with authorities calling it an 'epidemic'. However, although the sting from a bluebottle jellyfish is extremely painful, it not thought to be 'life-threatening'.

Meanwhile, Peter has been spending some precious time with his loved ones out in Aus. The 'Mysterious Girl' singer has been keeping fans up to date on social media, posting a sweet photo with his mum, dad and sister. He captioned the shot, 'love you mum dad and sis. It meant so much to be home.' [sic]

Peter, who appeared on Michael McIntyre's Big Show with his wife Emily last weekend, also shared a photo with his best mate George Nicolaou.

He wrote, 'My best man and my best mate. Good seeing you my friend even if it was for a few hours. @cappa1972 Wish I could of seen all my cousins and friends but such a short trip. @miss_zlavi @toullal @conniekattirtzis @christian_fry_dealmake. [sic]
