Peter Andre dealt with the racist experiences he had in his childhood in Australia and how they affect him to this day.
The 47-year-old was born in Great Britain to Greek Cypriot parents before the family moved to Australia at the age of six.
The Sun reports that the Mysterious Girl singer spoke to brother Danny about part of his video series Life With The Andres about the abuse.

"We suffered from racism as children and called fat women. I was beaten by children at school a few times," he said.
As a result of the agony, Andre claims that he still cannot bear wearing his hair with its natural texture.
"To this day, I don't just wear my hair curly, because when I look in the mirror, I still see what these children called me at the age of 47. You might think I was over it," said the father of four noticed.
Last year, in a video for The Diana Award charity, Andre shared how bullying had made him commit suicide.
He explained that he "stood out" at school due to his Mediterranean background and English accent, which led to mockery and physical abuse.

"If you are a child with dark hair, dark eyes, a strong English accent and a much larger nose than the children around you, I was an outcast as you would not believe it," he said.
After the success in the British charts in the 90s, Andre returned to his native country and made it his permanent home.
He shares two children with ex-wife Katie Price, Junior, 15, and Princess, 12, as well as another son and daughter, Theo, three and six year old Amelia, with Emily Andrea.
However, he may expand his brood as soon as he says he wants to have another child before the age of 50.
The video continues in the 1930s
