RUMOURS pop star Peter Andre had been set to open a Greek restaurant in Times Territory have been scotched.

News of the Aussie singer’s possible business venture emerged on the social networking site Twitter.

A poster known as ‘angelicon’ – real name Andrea Constantinou – wrote: “I know u r openin a greek resteraunt in Cuffley soon my bro is pals with d owner (sic).

“Keep the Greek support going.

“L U Andrea.”

Peter, 36, was born to Greek Cypriot parents in London, before emigrating to Australia at the age of six.

Musically, he is best known for his 1996 UK number two hit Mysterious Girl – which subsequently reached the top of the charts after he appeared in I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2004.

His stint in the jungle also led to his private life coming under intense scrutiny in the tabloid press, following his marriage – and subsequent divorce – to glamour model Katie Price, also known as Jordan.

After reading Andrea’s post on Twitter, the WHT made some enquiries. A spokeswoman for Welwyn Hatfield Council said: “We have no applications in Cuffley for anybody to open a Greek restaurant.”

But she pointed out: “There is The Gables in Newgate Street which is currently empty.”

The rumour was eventually put to bed when Peter’s management company contacted our newsdesk.

A spokeswoman simply said: “It is not true.”
