Australian singer Peter Andre fought back tears on his U.K. reality show on Wednesday night (09Jan13) as he faced up to his brother's deteriorating health shortly before his death.

The Mysterious Girl hitmaker's older sibling Andrew passed away on 16 December (12) after a battle with cancer, and an edition of the singer's fly-on-the-wall series, Peter Andre: My Life, featuring the 54-year-old's health crisis was subsequently pulled from air.

Tv bosses screened the delayed episode last week (ends06Jan13), and on Wednesday's final installment of the season, Andre appears distraught as he talks about his brother's diagnosis backstage at a concert in London on 4 December (12).

He says, "I almost wish I could put this show on hold, but you can't and it is what it is."

Andrew's daughter Thea visited the singer before the gig, and showed her uncle a video she had made in honour of her father - prompting Andre to well up and walk away from the camera to compose himself.

He later returned and told her, "Well done, I'm proud of you."

On 8 December (12), Andre postponed the remainder of his U.K. tour to spend time with his brother. The axed dates have been rescheduled for later this year (13).
