Kerry's play date with Pete: Reality stars spend cosy afternoon with their children

They have formed a close bond since splitting from each of their spouses.

And with her drug and booze past behind her, Kerry is concentrating all her efforts on her children - and so family man Pete is the ideal buddy.

The pair spent a relaxed Sunday afternoon watching over their children's play date in Andre's Sussex home.

Kerry was pictured earlier in the day leaving her Surrey home with children Heidi 3, and Max, 2.

The 30-year-old was dressed in a charcoal jumpsuit with parachute-style trousers, a grey cardigan and a blazer.

She wore lace-up heeled boots and had her hair twisted into a french braid up 'do.

The children looked excited for their play date with Andre's children Junior and Princess Tiaamii, running to the car.

Peter didn't emerge to greet Kerry and her children as they arrived outside his home, which regularly features in his ITV2 reality show.

A source told the Daily Star that Kerry was unable to attend 37-year-old Pete's tour, so she visited his home to catch up instead.

She said recently: 'Pete's one of my best friends down south - he's a great dad and a great friend.'

A source told the Daily Star: 'Kerry couldn’t make it down to Pete’s gig in Brighton on ­Sunday so she decided to pop round ­yesterday instead.'

'It was a real family occasion. Kerry took her two youngest, Heidi and Max, round for lunch with Peter, Junior and Princess Tiaamii.

'Pete’s brothers Mike and Chris were also there.

'Of course rumours will always start when Pete and Kerry meet up but they both insist they’re strictly good pals and that’s all.

'Some of their friends would love to see them hook up one day but at the moment all Kerry is interested in is getting fit for Dancing On Ice.'

The pair - who share the same management - have participated in magazine photoshoots together and have even made cameos in each other's ITV2 reality shows.

Kerry's documentary, Coming Clean, aired last weekend and showed her new clean and sober lifestyle.

Katona has been training hard for upcoming appearance on Dancing On Ice, to be aired from January.
