Peter Andre back in UK and staying at manager's home ahead of Katie reunion
A very slim-looking Peter Andre landed in Heathrow yesterday, after returning to Britain to face a showdown with Katie.
The singer has spent a week in Cyprus being consoled by his family over the split, which, he says, has caused him to lose a stone.
Peter came home to find all his belongings had been removed from the £3m Surrey mansion he shared with Katie and, in a move that may anger the model, he is currently staying with her former manager, Claire Powell, in her £1 million house.
Claire announced the couple’s split three days before ending her own business relationship with Katie.
Katie has spent the last week holed up in a luxury resort in the Maldives, but is due back in Britain tonight, and reportedly wants to talk about the marriage tomorrow – on her 31st birthday.
A source told The Sun: ‘It could turn out to be most miserable birthday, the day they decide to go their separate ways.
‘Kate says she wants to save her marriage but insists she’s ready to move on if they can’t work things out.
‘Peter is still devastated and very hurt by her behaviour and is not sure if he can face taking her back and trying to be a family again. They clearly have a lot of talking to do.’
It has been reported that Katie has begged Peter to give her a second chance, but friends say he is very upset to have found his possessions removed from their home upon his return to the UK.
The source added: ‘He felt she did it just to spite him.
‘She has been calling him from the Maldives and trying to arrange a meet, but he has run out of steam.
‘He hasn’t got the energy for the fights.
‘He knows any talking will end up in a row and he wants to keep things calm for the sake of the children. He doesn’t feel ready to see Katie yet.’
Meanwhile, the dressage coach who was behind the boozy pics that made Peter furious, has offered to ‘meet man to man‘ to discuss the innocence of the pics and ‘save the marriage’.
