Reflecting on his kids getting older, Peter told : ‘It’s hard because you’re so strict as a parent, but as time goes on you start letting the reigns go a little bit.

‘You don’t want to let them go too much too quick.’

The family turned heads at the swish bash, with Pete, cutting a dapper figure alongside Princess, who wore a scarlet red dress that complemented her step-mum Emily’s own deep red gown, as budding singer Junior sported a black trouser suit with a red tie.

Taking his eldest children along to the glam showbiz event is par for the course for Peter, who is clearly fully on board with his kids following in his celebrity footsteps.

He’s recently shown his support for Junior’s music career, which has so far gone well, with his debut single Slide recently shooting up the iTunes singles chart.

And he’s also backing his daughter Princess to enter the showbiz realm, although he’s not best pleased with her dream of entering the Love Island villa in a few years’ time.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk at the Butterfly Ball, he joked: ‘I guess I’m now only going to be known as ‘Princess’s dad.

Asked about his recent Instagram post in which he told Princess she wasn’t allowed to appear on Love Island – on which another celebrity offspring, Gemma Owen, 19, the daughter of former England footballer Michael Owen currently appears – he replied: ‘I always say I’d love her to present the show.

‘It’s a great show to watch – just not sure I’d want my daughter on it, that’s all.’

Peter, who shares his younger children, Amelia, eight, and Theo, six, with second wife Emily, continued: ‘I give her grief about it all the time.

‘I tell her, “you know it’s gonna be axed in a couple of years you won’t be able to go on it in a couple of years”.’
