Singer Peter Andre is having a tough time

TAGS:

Peter Andre has flown to Australia because his brother Andrew has fallen ill.

The reality TV star, who has 4 brothers and 1 sister, travelled to the other side of the world as soon as he found out about the ‘family emergency’ a few days ago.

‘It’s been a really difficult week to be honest,’ says Pete, 38.

‘At the moment I’m not sure when I’ll be back as I want to stay here for as long as Andrew needs me.’

Pete‘s children Junior, 6, and Princess, 4, are staying with mum Katie Price, 33, while he’s Down Under, but he admits he’s missing them ‘like crazy’.

‘Fortunately their mum was due to have them over half-term so, timings wise, it’s worked out quite well me having to go to Australia,’ says Pete.

‘I call them every day and have explained to them that uncle Andrew is poorly, so they understand why I’m away.’
