He died on December 16, aged 54, with the Andrew family at his bedside.

Earlier this month, Pete spoke about wishing he could “spend another Christmas” with Andrew.

“If I could turn back time my wish would be to spend another Christmas with him,” the star revealed.

Peter spoke about Andrew as he visited Marie Curie’s memory-powered tree in London.

“We were never able to spend Christmas together as we were never in the same country at the same time,” he continued. “The only year we did was the year Andrew sadly died.”

At the time of Andrew’s death, a rep for Pete said: “Peter is devastated. He was very, very close to his brother.
