The singer's distraught over brother's cancer battle

TAGS:

Heartbroken Peter Andre is facing the toughest Christmas of his life after his brother Andrew took a turn for the worse last week.

The singer, 39, cancelled his remaining tour dates for this year following the devastating news that Andrew was losing his fight with kidney cancer.

A statement from his management explained: ‘Andrew’s health has taken a turn for the worse and Peter’s made the decision to be with him and his family at this time.’

As Now went to press, Pete was at his brother’s bedside at Chelsea’s Royal Marsden hospital, a leading cancer centre, with his other siblings and Andrew’s wife Magda.

His parents Sawas and Thea were also flying over from Australia to join the vigil.

Pete made the emergency dash back from Birmingham, where he’d appeared at The Clothes Show Live, last Saturday morning.

‘He just wanted to be at Andrew’s side,’ says a source. ‘He couldn’t cope with being away and wanted to spend as much time with him as possible.’
