Due to it being Pete’s birthday this week, we thought we’d dedicate this blog post to the reasons why the Danilo Team love Peter Andre.
Back in the 1990’s, when Peter released single ‘Mysterious Girl’ (1996) the UK became Pete-crazy (especially with those abs!) and since his successful stint on “Im a Celebrity” in 2004 it seems that Great Britain has been reminded exactly why he is so lovable!
Whilst there are many reasons to be an Andre fan, here are our top 5:
- His lovely nature: Peter is modest, sweet and caring!
- He always has time for his fans: During a calendar signing event at Clinton Cards store, Peter insisted on staying longer than the hours advertised to make sure he could sign all the calendars of the 1600+ fans that queued to see him
- His work with charity: He launched the Peter Andre foundation in April 2013 in memory of his brother Andrew, who died of kidney cancer last December and continues to work closely with Cancer Research UK.
- He is a great family man: A patient and loving dad, Peter frequently comments on how much his family means to him. Many congratulations to Peter and fiancée Emily who recently had a beautiful baby girl.
- His boyish charm and amazing smile that has won over the hearts of millions and make him the perfect calendar pin-up!
Why not let us know what your favourite things about Peter are…
Firstly, we want to say a Big Thank You to everyone who came to see us at Spring Fair last week! It has been another great year and was lovely to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones too 🙂
As the Market Leaders of official licensed calendars, cards, dairies and wrap, us hard-working bods at Danilo have been working closely with some great Licensors to ensure we bring you the best titles in TV, Music, Film, Gaming, Sport and Glamour!
And we have been so pleased to be able to demonstrate some of our fantastic 2014 / 2015 brands at the NEC last week.
But just in case you couldn’t make it up to see us, we wanted to share with you lovely people a taster of the exciting things we have planned for this year…
- As we have secured new multi brand licenses with the likes of Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros, Fox and the BBC, it means we are super-excited to be able to bring you titles such as Winnie the Pooh, Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, TV Show Arrow, Amazing Spiderman 2, Godzilla, American Dad, Guardians of the Galaxy, funny sitcom Modern Family and new computer game Disney Infinity.
- We also have the licence to publish The Great British Bake Off calendars and diaries this year, and signed a deal direct with Paul Hollywood, who judges and presents the show with Mary Berry.
- Another major signing for us is the new Doctor Who in the shape of the regenerated 13th incarnation – as explained by Matt Smith in the Christmas Day special before he turned into Peter Capaldi. We will be publishing both new and classic Dr Who calendars, diaries, cards and wrap featuring iconic villains as well as Peter as the new Doctor in the latest TV series showing on BBC1 later this year
- But not forgetting last year’s bestsellers, we are also very pleased to be able to see a return of popular titles for 2015 such as:
- One Direction – Who have a new music and live tour scheduled for this year
- Minecraft – A gaming brand whose immense popularity is still continuing to grow
- Skylanders – Another great gaming brand that will see a new release later this year
