Peter Andre has announced that he is postponing the rest of his 2012 tour.

A statement on the singer's website said: "His brother's health has taken a turn for the worse.

"Peter has made the decision to be with him and his family at this time." His older brother Andrew has been having chemotherapy to treat cancer.

Tonight's concert in Liverpool (8 December) will be rescheduled. Other performances were due to take place in Bournemouth, Nottingham and Brighton.

The remaining 2012 dates on the Up Close & Personal Tour will now take place next year.

They will follow his pre-existing shows already scheduled for January 2013.
