Andre to accommodate sick brother

Peter Andre's sick brother is moving in with him.

The 'Behind Closed Doors' singer's elder sibling Andrew is battling stomach cancer so Peter is planning to build an extension onto his home to accommodate his sibling while he receives treatment in the UK.

Australia to the UK so he can be with him and look after him through his continued treatment.

He said: "At the moment, my brother Andrew is recovering from his operations for his cancer and the big news is that in a couple of weeks he's moving over here from Australia to live with me with his wife Magda.

"They're going to live with me and my other brothers Mike, Danny and Chris in my house and we're going to look after him while he has treatment.

"My parents, who live in Australia, are nearly 80 and I really don't want them to see Andrew going through the chemotherapy and all that stuff.

"My dad had such terrific treatment over here when he was ill last year, so he knows that it's the best place for Andrew. I'm going to build a small extension onto my house so there's room for everyone!"

Peter, 39, also thanked people for their support and well-wishes since he revealed his brother's plight, and said many of his showbiz pals have rushed to offer their condolences.

He added in his column for new! magazine: "I've had so much support this week from people who've heard about what my brother is going through. It's really touching.

"Kerry Katona has been asking if there's anything she can do, as has Amy Childs and Gino D'Acampo."

Peter is the youngest of six children, alongside siblings Andrew, Danny, Chris, Michael and Debbie.
