A kung fu expert who is the Mr Big of the martial arts world has come clean about his colourfulpast – as a porn star called Pete Le Meat.

Peter Mogridge travelled the world for several years making steamy films with his former girlfriend, glamour model Michelle Thorne.

Between times he worked as a male stripper called Adonis.

“It was all good clean fun and everything was above board. I haven’t done anything I’m ashamed of,” the 46-year-old told the Citizen.

“I admit it’s a bit embarrassing sometimes when I think of the past, but I suppose it’s all helped to make me who I am today.”

Now a highly respected martial arts master, Peter runs his own kung fu classes called Urban Wing Chun all over Milton Keynes.

The dad-of-three coaches city army cadets, runs self defence classes for all ages and works for children’s charities.

“Obviously I don’t talk about my background. A few of my older students know but it’s not something that’s relevant any more,” he said.

A kung fu fanatic from the age of five, Peter always had a muscular build.

“When I was in my 20s I was standing in a fancy dress shop waiting to hire a costume for a party when somebody asked me out of the blue if I’d like to work as a male stripper. It seemed like a good idea at the time!”

Before he knew it Peter was touring the world with the UK Hot Boys, formerly the famous Chippendales.

“I was the first stripper to do the Full Monty in Northern Ireland, which was quite a conservative place in those days,” he said.

He met former X Factor contestant Michelle, who was already making a name for herself in the glamour world, and they made a series of porn films together.

“I came up with the name Pete Le Meat and it caught on. I think I made 22 films,” he said.

Today Peter’s porno days are in the past and the only time he goes in front of the cameras is when he does stunt work for actors or receives another Wall of Fame award for his kung fu expertise.

“I’m a different type of person now. I like to spend my life helping people and doing good,” he said.
