It's no secret that Barbie is the film of the summer, from catchy songs and fun fashion, to a star-studded cast and enchanting storyline, it's all anyone can talk about.
But it seems that our columnist Peter Andre has his own personal 'connection' to the film.
In an exclusive chat with new, the dad-of-four revealed that he has an unknown link to the star of the movie, Margot Robbie, and it's a lot closer to home – for him anyway – than you might think!
He said: "Margot Robbie, who plays Barbie, is not only a fellow Aussie but is a Gold Coast girl – which is where I’m from, too. We didn’t go to the same school together or anything, but it is a very small city, so the fact she’s smashing it in Hollywood is incredible to see."

Although he admitted he's yet to see the film, the hype around it hasn't gone unnoticed by Peter who gave his opinion on what to expect.
"The Barbie movie is on everyone’s radar at the moment. I have yet to see the film, but I’ve heard conflicting views about it. Some claim the movie is anti-men, while others say it’s out of touch with feminism and women’s experiences.
"It’s certainly getting all the headlines, though, which is making the film a huge success," he said.
And speaking of 'huge successes', the 50-year-old said the pink-themed flick has given him some style inspiration too.
Peter said: "I’ve a couple of suits in similar colours to those Ken wears in the film. I‘ve a mint and lime suit and a light pink one, but I’ve never known which shoes or shirt to pair with them. Now, Ken (Ryan Gosling) has given me a few ideas.
"However, I guess the only similarities between Ken and I is that I also like a good barbie. Ha!"
A barbie, or some sunshine for that matter, wasn't far from Peter's mind this week either as he enjoyed a relaxing break in Cyprus with his family.
Speaking about his "beautiful" holiday home that he and Emily visit regularly, the singer said it was "amazing to spend quality time with Emily, Junior, Princess, Millie and Theo."
He continued: "We love going to Cyprus together. It’s definitely a place special to my heart. We tend not to make too many plans, as we just like to chill out.
"But we do have our little routines, including going to the pool and playing tennis and visiting our local restaurants and cafés."
In other news, the star also voiced his congratulations to Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury after the loved-up pair recently got engaged.
Citing them as a "true love story", Peter revealed: "It’s lovely to hear the news that Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury are engaged. Tommy is a friend and I’m so happy for him.
"I always say they’ve shown that Love Island really can work. They went into the villa, met, fell in love and have stayed together. It’s a true love story, and their proposal video was fab. Many happy years, guys."
And our columnist knows only too well what it's like to have the spotlight on you during a reality TV show, and even reflected on his time in the I'm a Celeb jungle during our chat.
Although he doesn't have any plans to return at the moment, the star isn't afraid to keep fans guessing about the possibility.
He said: "Rumours have been circling about who will be joining the I’m A Celebrity 2023 line-up in November. I’m often asked for my thoughts on going back into the jungle, and although it’s a great series, I don’t think it would be the right thing for me to do.
"I’ve been on the show twice and, although I never say never, there’s the thought that people may not want to see you on it a third time, lol. Whoever does take part, though, I’m sure they’ll love the experience as much as I did."
Peter also included his view on this week's news in his column and spoke about his thoughts on the tragic fires in Rhodes.
"Reading about the fires on the Greek island of Rhodes is sad and terrifying," the Insania singer said.
"It’s scary that such events are becoming more frequent around the world. Families had to flee and tourists were evacuated. Rhodes is used to high temperatures, so for it to be this extreme I can’t imagine what it must be like. My thoughts are with everyone involved."
