Andre flies to Australia to support sick brother

London: Singer Peter Andre has flown to his native Australia to support his brother Andrew who has been diagnosed with stomach cancer.

The 38-year-old singer went straight to the hospital after discovering his 52-year-old brother had been diagnosed with the illness, and cut short a trip to Africa to be by his sibling`s side.

"Pete (Peter Andre) has been knocked for six by this. He found out last week that Andrew was ill with cancer and that it was actually really serious," quoted a source as saying.

"He was in Africa, but once he got back to England he flew straight out to Oz to be with his family. Pete is so upset and worried for Andrew," the source added.
