Peter Andre found out in February that his brother Andrew has kidney cancer – and he admits he’s still finding it really hard to deal with.
The 39-year-old was in Zanzibar and filming for his reality TV programme when he received the call that gave him the bad news. ‘I was horrified, so shocked, and I broke down,’ says Pete. ‘The tears were just rolling down my face and I’ve cried every day since. You’ll see on the show how much it affected me. I lost control. I felt sick.’ (is it just me or is Pete even using his brothers illness to plug his new TV show ??)
Pete says he soon flew to Australia to be by his brother’s bedside, but Andrew, 54, is now living in the singer’s UK home while he receives medical treatment.
‘Every time I feel low or down, I feel like such a selfish bastard,’ says Pete. ‘I tell myself to snap out of it and think about what my brother is facing. The puts things into perspective.’
