Peter Andre is still not ready to have sex.

The 'Behind Closed Doors' singer - whose divorce from Katie Price will be finalised in the coming weeks - is keen to start dating again but thinks it will be a while before he gets intimate with another girl.

Peter, who has remained celibate since the May split, said: "I'm ready to start dating. But there's no way I could even think about having sex at the moment. I'm looking for a nice girl."

Although he is on the search for a new lady, Peter has been left terrified by two obsessive female fans and has hired two former SAS minders to protect him.

The women have been seen outside his home and have been following him around the country as he makes a series of personal appearances.

A source said: "It has freaked Pete out a bit. Now he's not taking any chances. Safety is his main priority.

"Former SAS-trained security men have been drafted in to protect him and keep over-eager fans at bay."

Meanwhile, Katie has reportedly told friends she still loves Peter and regrets her recent wild behaviour.

The glamour model - who raises three children, Harvey, seven, Junior, four, and two-year-old Princess Tiaamii, with Peter - is devastated her marriage has come to an end.

A source said: "The divorce is finally hitting home. She never really thought her marriage would end, deep down. Now it has, she can't get over Pete."

Since the split, Katie - also known as Jordan - has enjoyed several wild nights out, including a week in the party island of Ibiza, and is now dating cage fighter Alex Reid.
