Peter Andre’s wife Emily slams complaints over the BBC’s coverage of Prince Philip’s death


PETER Andre’s wife Emily has slammed the 100,000 people who complained about the BBC’s coverage of Prince Philip’s death earlier this month.

The 99-year-old royal passed away on Friday 9 April, with the Beeb promptly wiping their schedule to pay tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh for the rest of the day.

The MasterChef final was pulled from schedule, and delayed from airing for five days, and EastEnders was also among the fan favourites axed.

The BBC have since confirmed it received 109,741 official complaints from the public about the move – something that 31-year-old Emily doesn’t understand.

Writing in her column for OK! magazine, she shared: “I was surprised that more than 100,000 people complained about the BBC’s coverage of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death.

“I don’t quite see the need to complain, because it means a lot to a lot of people, and it was such an important thing to cover.”

The GP added: “If you don’t like something there are plenty of other channels available!

“I think it was really nice that they did such good coverage, but I do understand that I follow the Royal Family and not everyone does, so I guess it just wasn’t for everyone.”

Both Emily and her husband Peter have shared their love and respect for the royal family in recent weeks, with 48-year-old Pete even paying tribute to the Queen on Instagram in honour of her 95th birthday today.

Referencing the recent loss of her husband, the singer wrote: “I really wish it was a HAPPY birthday for this wonderful lady. Still, we wish you nothing but the best for your 95th birthday. #ourqueen #strongwoman.”

Peter and Emily tied the knot in 2015 and they share two children, seven-year-old Amelia and four-year-old Theo.

Pete is also dad to 15-year-old Junior and 13-year-old Princess from his first marriage to Katie Price.
