Of course it was only a bloomin’ joke.
Peter Andre has finally responded to THAT awkward Iceland joke that he made when he appeared on Celebrity Juice last week.
The 41-year-old caused major #TwitterDramz when he hinted that he was ‘embarrassed’ to be starring in quite frankly the most brilliant adverts of our time, and he has now apologised for any offence caused.
Writing in his new! magazine column, the 41-year-old says: “It was completely tongue in cheek, but some took it the wrong way and called for me to be sacked as the face of the brand.
“First of all, I sincerely apologise if it upset anyone. I knew Keith and the team were going to banter me for doing the ads, so I just got in there first.
“I’m extremely proud to be the Iceland ambassador and we’ve all had a great response from the ads.
“It’s an ongoing joke in my house that whenever I come on TV, I have to leave the room because I can’t watch myself back – that’s what HDTV does to ya!”
Put that in your pipe and smoke it, haters.
In case you missed the mega scandal from last week, the mishap occured when Celeb Juice host, Keith Lemon, referenced the fact that Olly Murs had been crowned ‘Rear Of The Year’, with Olly saying that he was “embarrassed” by the title.
Which, as a sidenote, he shouldn’t be. His bum is ace.
Anyways, Peter tried to defend his pal, quipping: “Olly, dude, you don’t need to be embarrassed – I’ve done an Iceland advert.”
OBVIOUSLY A JOKE, RIGHT?!
Well, some serious Sallys didn’t take it like that and it wasn’t long before the Twitter brigade were out in force calling for Pete to be ditched from the campaign:
Lighten up, guys?
Anyways, we doubt that the dad-of-three was ever quaking in his boots about it all, with the supermarket chain in question quick to comment on the whole debacle and dismissing the entire hoo-haa as the joke that it was.
A spokesperson for Iceland said: “He was just joking, it’s the nature of the show, he’s a top bloke.”
And if Iceland still reckon that he is a top bloke after the quip, so should the rest of us.
