Peter Andre is excited at the prospect of having his kids with him for Christmas and has been secretly buying gifts for them all through the year.

The 'Behind Closed Doors' hitmaker has custody of stepson Harvey, nine, son Junior, six, and four-year-old daughter Princess Tiaamii - his kids with ex-wife Katie Price - over the festive period.

"I'm hoping to have all three kids on Christmas Day this year as it's my turn. I'll hopefully be spending New Year with them, too, and I'd love to take them away for a few days," Contactmusic quoted him as writing in his column in new! magazine.

"I've got all their presents, but, to be honest, I've been buying them stuff all year," he said.

"Basically every time they've said they want anything, I've secretly bought it for them and then kept it back until now. So they're going to be getting a lot of things they said they wanted months ago," he added.
