PETER Andre fought back tears today as he opened up about Olivia Newton-John’s death.
The singer – who is currently playing Vince in the West End version of Grease – has been left devastated by the news, which rocked the cast last night.
Olivia is best known for playing Sandy in the hit film alongside John Travolta, who starred as Danny.
Speaking on today’s Lorraine to host Ranvir Singh, he said: “So first of all, everything that has been said about her is spot on, she was warm, it’s very rare to meet someone in this industry who is exactly what you hoped.”
Pete, who wasn’t on stage last night, revealed how the cast found out, explaining: “The cast found out half way through the show. The girl who plays Sandy had to tell the audience, and they were in shock.”
He said from now on it will be “a very different show” as he prepares to return tomorrow night.
