The 'Mysterious Girl' singer is keen to branch out into acting and after Jennifer Metcalfe, who plays Mercedes McQueen in the Channel 4 show, recently said she'd love to see him join the cast and the 44-year-old star admitted he'd jump at the chance.

He said: "Let's do it, I'll go in 'Hollyoaks'!

"I'm really busy this year but I'd love to do a soap. I like trying new things."

However, soap work will have to wait for Peter - who has Junior, 12, and 10-year-old Princess with ex-wife Katie Price and Amelia, four, and 14-month-old Theo with spouse Emily - because he's currently got his eyes on Hollywood.

He said: "I'm going to the US to film at the end of March.

"I'm proud of how well Brits such as James Corden and Mark Wright are doing.

"I've also got two other things coming up, one of which is a worldwide thing that's something I've never done before and is going to be announced soon."

The 'Behind Closed Doors' singer struggles with social anxiety but didn't have many problems shooting the new series of '60 Minute Makeover'.

Asked if it helped with his issues, he told OK! magazine: "It did, but it's different because it's not live and it's not a red carpet.

"I have been getting better and I've been going to things, but there are still certain things that get mentioned to me and I start feeling really anxious. Don't ask me why.

"I don't get nervous presenting. I love that job."
