Peter Andre wants to move back to Australia.

The 40-year-old hunk is keen to relocate to his native country when his children - Princess Tiaamii, five, and seven-year-old Junior - are independent as he misses being Down Under.

He said: ''When the kids are old enough and when I'm older, I'll go because that's also my home ...

''The first thing I'll do when my kids are of age is I'm going backpacking - and they can come and join me if they want. I want to do the world!''

However, it is thought the children's mother, Peter's ex-wife Katie Price - who is currently expecting her fourth child with new husband Kieran Hayler - would be strongly against the move with fears her kids will join him.

A source added to Now magazine: ''Pete's always said he wants to go back to Australia one day, but he's never talked about it publicly in such definitely terms before - which surely will be a concern for [Katie].

''And what Junior and Princess will end up doing remains to be seen. It's bound to worry [Katie] - there's no way she'd want to see her children moving to the other side of the world, even if they're over 18 by then and able to decide for themselves.''

Pete has already suggested the idea to his girlfriend Emily MacDonagh, 23, and recently invited her with him on his reality TV show 'Peter Andre: My Life'.

When she smiled and nodded to his request, he gushed: ''Would you really move to Australia for me in 10 years? That's what makes you special! Do you know what's special about it?

''It's that you think that far ahead. That's what I love about you. I think it's beautiful.''
