And his stay culminated when he was in The Perfume Shop to promote two new perfumes – Young and Forever Young.

As reported, the TV presenter was filming for ITV1’s This Morning, at Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham.

Peter said: ‘I have fallen in love with Portsmouth, I have met so many people here it’s unbelievable.

‘It’s been an incredible week at the hospital, really showing how good the Portsmouth hospital is.

‘Hopefully this will have an effect on other hospitals in the area.

‘To come here and do this signing, and see all these people – it’s just madness and it’s amazing. What a great place Portsmouth is, and I’m glad I’ve had a chance to visit it.’

Hundreds of fans flooded the retail outlet on Saturday, to see the star.

One of the first in line was Cally-Jo Carrington-Windo, who came over all the way from Gloucester to meet him.

She went along with her cousins Paris and Paige, both 12, from Southsea.

The 27-year-old said: ‘I have been a massive fan of Peter Andre since he released Mysterious Girl.

‘He’s so sexy, good looking and a friendly person.

‘He gave me a kiss and stroked my cheek and signed my perfume box for me. I was so happy I got to see him.’

Peter also met Carl Blake – father of 18-year-old Nadine, who died in March this year.

Nadine struck up a friendship with Peter Andre after sharing her story with him at his concert.

Carl, of Calshot Road, in Warren Park, said: ‘It’s the first time I met Peter since Nadine passed away, and it was great to see him again.’
