Peter Andre’s brother Andrew has died aged 54, leaving Pete “inconsolable and devastated”

Amy Childs Boutique Launch

There’s very sad news today as it’s been revealed that Peter Andre’s brother Andrew, who was 54, has died after losing his battle with cancer.

Fans of Pete’s will know that on December 7th, his management issued a statement to say that Andrew’s condition – he had cancer of the kidneys – had taken a turn for the worse and that Peter would be at his side to support him and his family as it was expected that Andrew would deteriorate further.

Peter postponed his tour and rescheduled dates for 2013 as his parent flew over from Australia to be with Andrew in Chelsea’s Royal Marsden hospital. But sadly, Andrew died at 2am on Sunday morning.

Just hours ago, Pete’s spokeswoman said, “Pete just can’t speak at the moment…

“Everyone was at Andrew’s side — his wife, daughter, Pete and their parents — the whole family.

“Andrew woke up, looked around at everyone to say goodbye, and then fell asleep. He passed away in his sleep. It was very peaceful.

“This is the first member of Pete’s immediate family to pass away and he is obviously devastated.

“The whole family is in shock and need time and privacy to grieve.”

Of the staff at the Royal Marsden, the spokeswoman said, “They did everything they possibly could to help Andrew.

“It has all happened so quickly. This time last year he just thought he had a tummy ache. It’s terrible.”

Peter is now making plans for Andrew’s funeral, but it’s not known yet if that will take place here in the UK or in Australia.

Our thoughts are of course with Peter and his family at this very sad time.

    So Said to hear about poor Andrew. My husband lost 2 brothers last year. one at 57 to the same as Andrew and the other brother who was 44 to brain tumours. Then this year lost his mum on his birthday. All rest in peace and at least they are n ot in any pain. Very sad though to be so young. Thinking of you Peter.

    To Peter and all rest of the family
    I’m so so sad to hear about the loss of your older brother Andrew
    I lost my lovely Nan to cancer 6 years ago she had to have chemo and radio therapy and it was very hard for my family to see someone that we loved so much slowly slip away
    And a couple of years ago my lovely cousin Sean died suddenly only within a couple of days of feeling unwell which was even more tragic as he seemed fit and well and was only 30 years old and had never married or had any children! No one had a chance to say goodbye to him or vice versa and his death was a big shock to the family
    I believe they are always around us in spirit and we must as much as we miss them soldier on keeping all of the memories alive X
