The report claims that Janette feels he has a 'girlie' posture, telling him: 'I shouldn't look more like a man than you but I do. The paso doble is the manliest of dances.'

According to the paper, Peter said: 'I haven't got the shoulders down or the stance correct. This is a big strong dance and I've got to work hard on it.' 

The pop prince is currently favourite to win the celebrity dance contest, after two successful weeks in which he performed the cha-cha, followed by the quick-step.

And speaking to The Mirror about being the favourite to win, Peter - who has children Junior, 10, and Princess, eight, with ex-wife Katie Price, and one-year-old Amelia with new bride Emily MacDonagh, 23 - said: 'I'm very grateful but I'm under no illusion that could change at any minute.' 

And after claims that he has an advantage being an ex-popstar, alongside novice dancers, he insisted: 'I'm not a technical dancer, I've never been to dance school, I'm self-taught. So to be able to get as far as I've got, I'm happy.'

A spokesman for Peter said the claims were 'absolutely ridiculous' and 'not true at all'. A spokesman for Strictly Come Dancing has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.

The report comes after Peter was forced to hit back at High Court judge Mr Justice Flaux for saying he 'made up' claims that his manager Claire Powell received death threats from TV producer Neville Hendricks.

Speaking about the Aussie star, the judge said: 'I completely disbelieve Mr Andre's evidence.'

But Peter hit back on Friday night, saying: 'I am extremely disappointed that Mr Justice Flaux didn't accept some of my evidence but all I can say is that I was telling the truth.'

Meanwhile, Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan admitted he was 'knackered' after just watching the Mysterious Girl hit-maker perform on Strictly.

The hunky Irish actor appeared on Channel 4's Celebrity Gogglebox on Friday, alongside funnyman Nick Frost, to raise money for charity Stand Up For Cancer. 

Discussing Strictly, he said: 'That looks so stupid right there,' as they showed clips of the BBC show.

Then, as they showed clips of Peter Andre on the dancefloor, he added: 'That looks exhausting, I'm knackered, just watching this.'
