This really is such tragic news to report.

Just this week we saw Andrew fighting his battle on Pete's reality show My Life on itv2.

The 54 year old was diagnosed with kidney cancer last year and treatment looked hopeful.

However, things have taken a turn for the worse and Andrew is no longer responding to treatment, with doctors giving him just two more days to live.

Therefore Pete has understandably pulled out of all his commitments to be at his brother's bedside.

Peter's spokesman said: "He is in bits. This has come as a big shock."

"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."

"Fortunately it has been possible to reschedule the five remaining 2012 dates on the Up Close & Personal Tour to take place following his pre-existing shows in January 2013."

Our thoughts really are with Pete and his family at this unbelievability difficult time.
