Peter Andre has postponed a series of tour dates to be at the bedside of his brother Andrew, who is said to be nearing the end of his battle with terminal cancer.

Earlier this year the Mysterious Girl singer arranged for his 53-year-old brother to leave Australia for the UK in order to receive treatment at a leading research hospital in Surrey, but doctors said his kidney cancer could not be cured.

A statement on the singer's website said: "It is with great regret that Peter Andre has postponed his remaining December 2012 tour dates, starting from Liverpool tomorrow, Saturday 8th December 2012.

"His brother Andrew’s health has taken a turn for the worse and Peter has made the decision to be with him and his family at this time."
