Peter Andre pays heartbreaking tribute to brother five years after his death

Andrew died after short battle with kidney cancer

Peter Andre has paid tribute to his older brother, Andrew, who he lost five years ago to cancer.

The singer also spoke of his biggest regret about losing his sibling, which is particularly preying on his mind at this time of year.

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

“We were never able to spend Christmas together as we were never in the same country at the same time.

“The only year we did was the year Andrew sadly died.

“He’s always in my thoughts but especially at this time of year.

Peter was speaking, as he visited Marie Curie’s memory-powered tree in London.

The lights on the tree get brighter as more people tweet their special memories under the hashtag LightUpXmas.

The Aussie favourite dedicated a social media post about the tree and the charity initiative to his sibling.

At the time of his brother’s death, a spokesperson for the reality TV star said: “Peter is devastated. He was very, very close to his brother.

“This is the very first family member Peter has experienced losing. He just needs time to grieve.”

Andrew, who was diagnosed with kidney cancer in February 2012, appeared to be responding well to treatment but his situation worsened in the November.

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