“When we split up, I couldn"t even look at myself in the mirror and I locked myself in my manager"s house for five weeks," the Mirror quoted Peter as saying. “All my confidence vanished and I felt so anxious and stressed out that my appetite disappeared and I could barely eat. I dropped nearly three stone in three months – I went from 13st 8lb to 10st 12lb. “Once I lost the weight, though, I was determined not to go back to the way I was and I feel much more confident about myself now.
“Exercise, sex and chocolate are great for making you feel good and I am doing two out of the three! I train for about an hour five days a week and feel I"m in the best shape I"ve ever been. I can eat what I want and that includes scoffing half a big bar of Cadbury"s a day. I love the fact that I have a six-pack – which I haven"t had for years. I"m the same weight I was in the Mysterious Girl days 15 years ago – I feel more energetic and younger.
“OK, I"m getting a few lines but when you get to your mid-30s they start to creep up and you have to let it happen. Each week I"m getting stronger – and I feel a million times better than I did a couple of months ago. I"ve had one panic attack since the split but, thankfully, I haven"t had any more. To say I"m 100 per cent back to my old self would be wide of the mark but I reckon I"m 90 per cent there," he added.
