TV STAR Peter Andre brought a touch of insania to the streets of Coulsdon today as he visited the town to film his latest show. The former pop star spent most of the day revamping one mysterious resident's house for his ITV show 60 Minute Makeover. Starstruck fans huddled opposite the home in Chipstead Valley Road waiting for the pint-sized presenter to emerge from behind closed doors. Sam Barter, 39, from Coulsdon, said she was within walking distance of her child's nursery when she learned the "lovely" Mr Andre was close by. She said: "He is just such a lovely person and he has got so much time for people. "I first met him years go when he was doing Mysterious Girl and I have been to his cafe in East Grinstead about five or six times." Her sister, Bernie Barter, 43 and also of Coulsdon, added: "We have met him loads of times. "He is such a family man and he has got so much time for his fans. "Yes, he is sexy and good looking but when you actually come face to face with him, he is so genuine. Not so many stars are like that." Daytime show 60 Minute Makeover sees Mr Andre leading a team of designers around the country transforming homes. He is expected to front 30 of the one-hour shows after securing the gig in April. Coulsdon resident Amy Nutland was another of the 40-odd fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the Auzzie exile. The 20-year-old said: "He's just a lovely guy - such a family man; he is like the perfect man." And the crowd was far from all female. Kelvin Dodd, 20, from Wallington, had been working nearby with Tom Child Garden Landscapes. "I came straight from work to see if they needed their garden done," he joked, adding: "I have met him already. He is really polite and family orientated."
