Pete's father heartbreak
16:30 23 August 2006
Pete has been left heartbroken after he was snubbed by his estranged father.
The 'Big Brother' winner was set to be reunited with his dad Mark - who he hasn't seen for over ten years - when he left the house after last Friday's (18.08.06) final.
However, the Tourette's sufferer was left disappointed when Mark failed to turn up.
A family friend said: "Pete was really upset. Mark had promised faithfully he would be there - but once again, he let Pete down."
However, Mark, 46, insists he missed the reunion with his son because he did not want their first meeting to be in front of TV cameras.
He said: "Any reunion should be private - I don't want it done in front of any TV cameras."
Meanwhile, Pete seemed to enjoy himself at the 'Big Brother' wrap party on Monday night (21.08.06).
The 24-year-old spent most of the evening smooching fellow housemate Nikki, who he romanced while in the house.
An onlooker said: "They only had eyes for each other - even though everyone else was at the party. It was pretty incredible."
