Peter Andre has been left "devastated" following the death of his brother Andrew from cancer.

It is believed that Andrew, who was diagnosed with kidney cancer earlier this year, passed away on Sunday with his family, including Peter, by his bedside.

According to the Mirror, a family friend said: "Everyone was with him when he passed away. They all did everything they could for Andrew and there wasn’t one waking minute when he wasn’t with somebody.”

A spokesperson 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.”

Taking to his Twitter, Peter and Andrew's brother Michael wrote: "Love you my brother. Never to be forgotten, i'll see you when i get up there someday. Until then rest in peace and enjoy the tranquility."

Having found out about his brother's illness earlier this year, Peter cancelled his tour plans and moved Andrew into his home so that he could receive the best treatment possible.
