Peter Andre fans struggled to contain their astonishment after discovering that FKA Twigs used to be his backup dancer from a Sunday Twitter post.
The singer, 48, was pictured posing alongside the Brit Award nominee, 34, before she went on to forge an international music career of her own in unearthed snaps.
She even shared an adorable embrace with the Mysterious Girl hitmaker’s children Junior, now 16, and Princess, now 14, whom he has with his ex-wife Katie Price.

Last year got off to a difficult start for the Gloucestershire-born musician, who filed a lawsuit in December 2020 against her ex Shia LaBeouf, alleging he knowingly gave her an STD and abused her on several occasions during their relationship.
The former couple met on the set of the movie Honey Boy in 2018 and dated for nine months, splitting in May 2019.
In February, FKA twigs sat down for a powerful CBS This Morning interview, shutting down Gayle King when she asked why she didn’t leave Shia amid their allegedly abusive relationship.
Gayle, 66, asked FKA twigs: ‘Nobody who’s been in this position likes this question, and I often wonder if it’s even appropriate to ask … why didn’t you leave?’

‘I think we have to stop asking that question,’ FKA twigs told her in response to the question, citing the complicated dynamics of being in an abusive relationship.
She told the host: ‘I know that you’re asking it out of love, but like, I’m just going to make a stance and say I’m not going to answer that question anymore because the question should really be to the abuser, ”Why are you holding someone hostage with abuse?”’
Reflecting on their ‘nightmare’ relationship elsewhere in the interview, FKA claimed her former partner would force her to ‘sleep naked’ and called her ‘disgusting and vile’ in her chat with Gayle.
She said: ‘He would often start an argument with me in the middle of the night. He would start accusing me of doing all sorts of things, planning to leave him in my head.

‘That I was disgusting and vile. Nothing was ever true but I would really doubt myself, especially when I would wake up, and he would be like ”You were lying there with your eyes open, planning to leave me.” And I would be like ”I was literally asleep.”
‘He would only want me to sleep naked because he said if I didn’t, I was keeping myself from him.’
Shia’s attorney has said in a court filing at the time that the Honey Boy actor ‘denies generally and specifically each and every allegation’ in FKA’s complaint.
Shia has apologised to ‘those he had hurt’ but has ‘denied each and every’ assault allegation by the singer and wants her to pay his legal costs.
According to legal documents obtained by People, Shia denied that [Barnett] has sustained any injury or loss by reason of any act or omission on the part of [LaBeouf], and denies that [Barnett] is entitled to any relief or damages whatsoever’.
His lawyers added that ‘none of the acts alleged were based on sex and/or the conduct was not sexual’ as they try to get the sexual battery allegations dismissed.
