Peter Andre has attempted to replicate the feelings of pregnancy by using cling film to strap melons to his body.

The Mysterious Girl singer, 51, and Emily MacDonagh revealed in October that they were expecting a third child.

Andre shared a video on Instagram showing him doing the watermelon challenge, which has been a hit on TikTok with men who want to get the feel for what carrying a child might be like.

In the clip, MacDonagh helps Andre attach a watermelon to his stomach by wrapping sheets of cling film around his body before using the same process to put two honeydew melons on his chest.

He says: “Emily’s bump is quite small and even though these melons might be slightly exaggerated, the ratio of melon to bump is, I think we’re quite spot on in a way.”

Andre then shows himself doing things around the house including struggling to stand up from a couch, emptying the dishwasher and lying in bed.

“Oh, I would be done, I would be absolutely done, I’m not doing that,” he says while in the kitchen.

He also tried to get in a car and wear high heels, during the clip.

In his post, Andre wrote: “What a melon. Watermelon challenge… piece of cake.”

Andre, a presenter on GB News, has been married to MacDonagh since 2015 and they have a son Theo, and a daughter Amelia.

He also is a father to two children with his former wife Katie Price – son, Junior, and daughter, Princess Tiaamii – who he began a relationship with after they competed on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

Andre lost the ITV reality series to former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona, who became the first queen of the jungle.

He has also appeared as a panellist on ITV talk show Loose Women and competed on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
