The `Behind Closed Doors` hitmaker celebrated the coming of 2012 in Dubai with his children Junior, six, and four-year-old Princess Tiaamii - and says his whole family enjoyed an "amazing" party.
He said: "It was the best new year ever.
"On New Year`s Eve (31.12.11) we all went to huge party. There was amazing music, brilliant food and the kids had a ball.
"Both Junior and Princess were dancing on the stage at one point! I didn`t let them stay up too late, though - after a while I put them to bed and left them in the capable hands of a close friend while I went back to join the others."
Though he enjoyed the evening, Peter admits some parts of the night are a little hazy in his memory because he had been drinking alcohol but he knows his celebrations ended with a calorific meal.
He wrote in his column for new! magazine: "We went to Embassy bar, where I bizarrely ended up talking to Hugh Grant about God knows what!
"He was very nice from what I remember, but I couldn`t really tell you what we were talking about as I`d had a few drinks.
"I also had a Cuban cigar, which was quite an experience. It was a great night all in all, but unfortunately I ended it by eating a burger and chips in my room at 4.30am. Whoops!"
