According to The Mirror, Andre believes that Price's decision to return to the show where the couple got together seems desperate.
A source said: "Pete is absolutely furious. Obviously, he hopes he'll get more access to the kids over the New Year - for him this is a silver lining. But he feels like he's been left in the dark about child care.
"Pete turned the programme down - he thought going back on smacked slightly of desperation. And he is bemused by Katie's decision to go back - it's not as if she needs the money or the profile.
"Also he's concerned about the timing of the show. Harvey has been extremely poorly and Katie will be away for a month. Who's going to look after him?"
They added: "Katie decided to go for it. She loved it first time and figured it would give the public another chance to see the 'real her' - and an opportunity to claw back some good PR.
"She'll give everything a go if it helps her look good in front of the public. Kangaroo testicles, crocodile penis - she'll give it a whirl."
