Kayb Sky News anchor Kay Burley has admitted that she was “mortified” when Peter Andre broke down as she interviewed him yesterday.

Andre was too emotional to continue with a live appearance on Burley’s Afternoon Live programme after the host quizzed him over how he would feel if Katie Price’s new husband Alex Reid wanted to adopt his children.

Writing on her official blog last night, Burley claimed that Andre bears no ill will towards her after she apologised backstage for upsetting him.

The newsreader commented: “What a day. Peter Andre broke down on my show and when I went to check during an ad break that he was okay, he sobbed on my shoulder in the green room.

“I was mortified at having upset such an obviously doting family man and was keen to offer sincere apologies, but he was his usual charming self. As we stood and chatted about parenthood he said he was relieved he’d finally vented some of the pent-up tension he’d been feeling and I sympathised but warned him not to ever cry in front of the children.”

She added: “Eventually calm was restored and Peter left the building wiser about news interviews and me very much with ‘Team Pete’.”
