'Things are perfectly amicable,' Peter Andre says he shook hands with Katie Price's beau Leandro at their son's sports day

Hair-raising: Katie Price appears to have taken inspiration from Jedward

He may be lying through gritted teeth, but Peter Andre claims 'things are perfectly amicable' between him and Katie Price's new boyfriend.

The former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! contestant, who met his ex-wife on the jungle reality show, even told fans via his magazine column that Leandro Penna seemed like 'a very nice man'.

Unfortunately the trio aren't quite at the stage where they all dined out together, instead bumping into each other at Junior's sports day.

New look: Katie debuted the style as she headed to London's Cafe De Paris to film more scenes for her TV talent show

Pete wrote in new!: 'There was a story in the press last week saying that I met my ex-wife at Junior's sports day and that I shook hands with her new boyfriend Leandro. This is true.

'We were both there to support our son on his special day and things were perfectly amicable.

'My children always come first and I would never have it any other way.'
And while it momentarily seemed like everything is finally hunkydory, Pete couldn't resist a quick quip.

He added: 'Leandro seemed like a very nice man, although, to be honest, I only met him very briefly.'

Meanwhile, Katie has been busy experimenting with a new hairdo.

Yesterday she opted for a hair-raising new look as she and Leandro headed to London's Cafe De Paris to film for her new TV talent show.

The 33-year-old model appeared to have taken inspiration from The X Factor's John and Edward Grimes, aka Jedward, with her extraordinarily high blonde quiff.

The 'do was equally as eye-catching from the side and behind, as Katie's long blonde hair had been swept up into a mass of tumbling curls.

Katie teamed her Jedward-style quiff with a plain grey jumper, white shorts and silver UGG boots as she made her way into the venue.

Her Argentinian boyfriend, meanwhile, wore a pair of distressed jeans, a blue shirt and black jacket.

Katie has been spending a lot of time in London in recent weeks working on her modelling-based television programme.

Discovered by Katie Price, which will air on Sky Living this autumn, will see Katie set up Black Sheep Management modelling agency to find a model who ‘will break the mould’.

The show is being filmed for Sky Living and hopes to use Miss Price's knowledge, gained from 15 years in the business, to find exciting new talent.

According to the website: 'Katie's on the hunt for "the next big thing" to sign to a new talent agency. The winner will get a year long contract, personal mentoring from Katie and loads of other fabulous prizes.'

But it isn't just her TV show which is keeping Katie busy.

On Wednesday, the mother-of-three will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the biggest book signing as she launches her new novel The Comeback Girl at the O2 Academy in Leeds.

Talking about the challenge, Katie said: 'I'm so looking forward to trying to break the Guinness Book of Records title on Wednesday. I'm a bit nervous - who wouldn't be? - but Random House challenged me so I thought, why not, I'll give it a go.

'You know me, I can't resist a challenge. It'll be great fun whatever happens. And I've got an amazing outfit to show everyone. See you there!'
