Earlier this year, Peter revealed he had contacted the Australian embassy in a bid to see his elderly parents.

Opening up about his heartbreak in his column for new! magazine, the reality star said: “My number one priority this year is to go and see my mum and dad in Australia, as I miss them too much.

“I’m anxiously awaiting the borders opening as it's been upsetting not seeing them, especially as my mum isn't very well.”

He went on to explain that he hoped he could fly to Australia because of his mum's ill health, but he was denied the right to because it wasn't deemed enough of an emergency.

“I actually contacted the Australian Embassy because there are special circumstances whereby family members can fly over, but sadly I don't fit the criteria,” Peter divulged.
