‘Never ever forgotten’ Peter Andre shares emotional tribute to late brother on his birthday

Peter Andre has been supported by fans after tweeting a tribute to his late brother, on what would have been his 59th birthday.

The father-of-four tragically lost his brother back in December 2012 after he passed away from kidney cancer.

Nearly five years later, Pete is still keen to publicly remember his big brother, Andrew, and has taken to social media to wish him a happy birthday.

The singer tweeted a short but sweet message out to his 3.52 million followers, sending birthday wishes to Andrew and explaining that he’s always on his mind.

Peter simply said, ‘Happy Birthday my brother RIP Never ever forgotten’.

Sensitive to what must be a difficult time for the reality TV star, fans and followers rushed to offer him messages of support and condolences.

So far Peter’s tweet has been liked over 3.6k times and has attracted over a hundred comments.

One Twitter user wrote a lovely message, sharing their own family history with the celebrity, ‘Happy Birthday Andrew, he’ll always be with you Pete. We still get cake for mum & dad & send balloons up for them 💖’

Whilst a second echoed Pete’s sentiments and wrote, ‘Happy birthday Andrew #brighteststarinthesky was such lovely guy never forgotten xx’

Another social media user tweeted, ‘happy birthday andrew never forgotten shared birthdays with me was mine yesterday lots love pete was thinking of u xxxx’

Pete has previously spoken out about how much the loss of his brother has effected him mentally, and praised his wife Emily for being there for him.

The Mysterious Girl singer admitted that his grief sent his anxiety spiralling out of control, something which he had suffered with years before.

Speaking of his mental health at that time he said, ‘I plummeted, straight back to where I was 15 years ago. With panic attack and anxiety. I don’t want sympathy because millions of people do it every day and you do learn how to live without but the hole is still there.’

He continued to say that the mother of his two children Amelia and Theodore, had been ‘incredible’.
