Pete is celebrating his 40th birthday this week and says his one wish would be for his brother to be there with him.

Writing in his new! magazine column this week, Pete says:

"The only thing I would really like is to have my brother, Andrew, back with me, but obviously that’s one birthday wish that isn’t going to come true, sadly."

Andrew passed away in December after losing his battle with kidney cancer.

Around that time, Pete was forced to postpone tour dates to be at his brother's bedside and their parents also flew over from Australia to be with their sons.

Andrew was just 54 years old when he died.

Pete says he is planning a camping trip for this weekend to celebrate his big day:

The star writes: "As I mentioned last week, the kids weren’t with me over half-term as it wasn’t my turn, but they’re helping me to celebrate my 40th this weekend as we’re all going on a camping trip.

"They’re so excited, bless them, and so am I!"

Aw, we just hope they have a fab time!
