Singer Peter Andre's brother Andrew lives in Australia

Peter Andre says it’s ‘terrifying’ knowing his 54-year-old brother Andrew is fighting kidney cancer.

The reality TV star flew to Australia earlier this month to be by his sibling’s bedside when he fell seriously ill – and the singer says the past 2 weeks have been ‘the most important’ of his life.

‘It’s been horrific,’ says Pete, 38.

‘This week has torn me apart. I’ve had to see my brother lie there with all sorts of medication and sleeping for hours on end.’

Andrew, who lives with his wife Magda on Australia’s Gold Coast, has had to undergo 2 huge operations – to remove the kidney and check other areas – and the family are still waiting to see whether they were a success.

‘If the cancer has spread it could be fatal,’ says Pete.

‘There are times when he can’t get up and other times he’s up and about and happy.’
