Pressure to strip Peter Andre of Valletta Cultural ambassador title

News that Peter Andre – former pop singer turned reality TV star – has been appointed Cultural Ambassador to Valletta has caused a furore with hundreds calling on the local council to strip him of the title.

Mr Andre, who last topped the UK charts in 1995 with his single Mysterious Girl, was declared Cultural Ambassador by the Valletta council while in Malta last week.

Upon hearing the news, several people resorted to the social media to voice their shock. More than 500 signed an online petition calling for Mr Andre to be stripped of the title.

Mayor Alexei Dingli said: “The title can be misleading perhaps. He does not represent the culture of Valletta, we’re just seeing it from a promotion point of view.”
