Peter Andre has applauded new proposals from the U.K. government to crack down on online bullying.

British officials are preparing to bring in measures which will force website bosses to identify visitors who post defamatory messages on the internet - and Andre is delighted with the plan.

In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Great news about government finally cracking down on cyber bullies on Twitter and Facebook.

"About time. This has to stop... no more trolls. "So many hide behind fake accounts.

"But it looks like we can now find out who they are... brill (brilliant) news".
