Peter Andre has cancelled his December tour dates after receiving tragic news on Friday that his brother's battle with cancer had taken a turn for the worse.

The 39-year-old was preparing for a show in Cardiff for his "Up Close and Personal" tour of the UK when he received the news.

Peter's management posted a statement on his website the following day postponing all remaining December tour dates.

"[Peter's] brother Andrew's health has taken a turn for the worse," the statement read. "Peter has made the decision to be with him and his family [in London] at this time.

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

The pop star's 54-year-old brother was reportedly diagnosed with kidney cancer in February 2012.

A few weeks after the diagnosis, Andrew and his wife Magda left their home on Queensland's Gold Coast to get treatment in the UK closer to family.

The remainder of the family are reportedly travelling from Australia to be by Andrew's bedside in London.
