The former music hunk turned TV star presents 60 Minute Makeover – a show which involves the Mysterious Girl singer and his team renovating rooms in deserving residents’ houses.

Bridge Road resident Sophie Williams, 36, was secretly nominated by friends Nicola Shapton and Jade Radley, who put forward the mum-of-four citing her perpetual kindness.

Sophie, a dance teacher in Hertford, told the WHT: “It just all went in a blur because it was so overwhelming that people had given their day to come and do it all.

“I arrived home to everyone in the front garden to be shown around the house to see what they had done. They had been here all day getting everything prepared.”

Sophie said that the makeover included revamping the living room and children’s rooms.

She also heaped praise onto Peter Andre, who she said came across really well to everyone who met him.

“The amount of people there [meant I] didn’t see him first of all, then I noticed that he was coming towards me,” she added.

“He was a really, really nice guy. Every person said what a lovely guy he was to them, a really genuine nice guy, which is what I was taken with rather than being overwhelmed that he was a star.”
