Katie Price and Peter Andre at loggerheads over children's Christmas haircuts

Poor Princess Tiamii and Junior seem destined to be locked in a battle of wills between their celebrity parents, Katie Price and Peter Andre.

When the pair were taken to the hairdressers for a pre-Christmas trim, it seemed their father lit the blue touch paper on a fresh row with his ex-wife.

She objected wildly to him lopping off a few of Princess's precious blonde curls.

It was no doubt an innocent grooming move, but if Andre had been looking to take revenge on Price for blocking his trip with the children to Australia, he could hardly have picked a better way.

So the 31-year-old glamour model took to her Twitter page just after midnight to fume about Andre and her two-year-old girl's new look.

She wrote: 'Can't believe that when I got kids back, Princess comes back with her hair all cut short. Soo out of order.'

Blaming Princess's much shorter locks on Andre's hairdresser brother Michael, she added: 'Pete brother has cut Princess's hair off. Can't put it in a pony tail. Why would they do that, to prove what point?'

A friend of Andre's said he had also been less than impressed when Price dropped the kids off at his on Christmas Eve with four-year-old Junior's hair dyed blond and shaped into a mohican.

They said: 'Princess was given a trim by Pete's brother Michael, who is a professional hairdresser. It's nothing compared to Junior's blond Mohican.'

Price and Andre are still locked in a custody battle over the two children, but it would appear they have amicably been able to share their time with them over the Christmas period.

Although reported to be taking them to Australia with him for the New Year, he had them Christmas Eve night and handed them back to Price the following night.

Taking to her Twitter page again on Christmas Eve, she wrote: 'I hate being without Princess and Junior at Christmas :( but can't wait to get them back tomorrow night as Pete goes to Oz for 2 weeks.'

Katie has been snapped out with her son Harvey, her seven-year-old child with her footballer ex-boyfriend Dwight Yorke, in the run up to Christmas.

And Andre has been making the most of his time with his kids before he heads off to the other side of the world.

He took them to Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland last week where he took them for a spin round the ice rink, the largest in the UK, before taking them on some fairground rides before sharing a bag of chips in the snow.

He then treated them and some friends to a visit to the IMAX in Waterloo to see Disney's latest animation, A Christmas Carol.
