Peter Andre forced to cancel show after being taken ill in Florida

The singer was due to fly back to the UK for a show

Peter Andre has been forced to pull out of a concert after being struck down with a nasty bout of “sickness” while in America.

Peter, 45, has spent the past week in Florida with his children Junior, 13, and Princess, 11, and was due to fly home ahead of the gig tonight (Saturday) in Great Yarmouth.

But taking to Instagram in the early hours, Peter told his followers that he had become ill ahead of the journey back to the UK.

Alongside a cartoon drawing of a man clutching his stomach, the Australian singer said: “Oh man. Not feeling well.

“Think it’s gonna be a rough journey home.”

It said: “Peter Andre has been taken ill with sickness following his trip in America.

“It is with regret that we have to postpone Peter’s An Evening With at Great Yarmouth due to ill health.”

Sharing a not-so-glamorous photo of himself leaning over the side of a boat, the dad-of-four told his Instagram followers: “So first I chucked up :(( #loveflorida #realcortezcharter#h20watersports.”

But he later insisted it had turned into an “awesome day”.

Remembering his words, several fans have since questioned whether this is still the cause of his current “sickness”.
