London, March 13 (IANS) Singer Peter Andre says he stuffed his trousers with socks to make himself look more "blessed".
The "Mysterious Girl" hitmaker admitted he required some help to make his manhood more impressive in an infamous picture from his 2012 calendar shot.
"Listen, I was determined to prove that a lot of these models, whether you're well blessed or not, love to put socks down there," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Andre as saying.
"At the end of the day, you've got to because it's a photo shoot.
"I have no fear of telling people this is what they do - this is what I'm going to do and this is how good it looks.
"(There was) just a quarter of one. I didn't need any more than that. No, I had a full pair folded up," he added.
Andre was known for his six pack stomach in his 90s pop hey day and was delighted to get his toned physique back while training for "Strictly Come Dancing" last year as he usually "can't be bothered" to work so hard. (IANS)
