Our series of summer selfies continues with Andree meeting Andre during a chance encounter at work.

Andree Massiah was on a Hot Shoes placement at Radio 1 when she sat at a different desk than usual and saw the 'back of a man's head that looked familiar'. That familiar-looking head turned out to be Australian singer Peter Andre.

'When he saw me and smiled I left my desk and went to speak to him,' says Andree, who now works on user-generated content in the newsroom. 'I must have been nervous as I kept saying to him: "My mum really likes you!"'

'He was very chatty and asked about my family origins. We talked about holidays in the Caribbean,' she recalls of the February encounter.

She asked Andre for a photo and 'without hesitation' the singer took her phone off her and snapped the two together.

'He was warm and friendly and the encounter made my day.'
