Current host John Humphreys is said to be fuming at being booted for "that Aussie prick" and has instructed his lawyers to appeal against the decision. A spokesperson for the Welsh broadcaster said: "We can confirm that John Humphreys will no longer be the host of Mastermind and the BBC have brought in Peter Andre as his replacement. John is furious at the treatment he has received and has instructed his legal team to deal with this."
Meanwhile, Cypriot-Aussie, Peter Andre is said to be "absolutely stoked" at being offered the job. A spokeswoman for Andre said: "Peter Andre has been offered the job as host of Mastermind. He is over the moon at this and is looking forward to allowing his fans to see his intellectual side."
Fans of Andre were jubilant with one on twitter stating: "Pete to host Mastermind. I dunno wot sho tht is but I bet its gonna be betr now with him on it. Go pete luv ya!"
