POP star Peter Andre has been forced to cancel his pre-Christmas Clacton show for personal reasons.

Peter was due to play The Venue, at St Osyth, on December 15.

But the star decided to pull out of the rest of his current UK tour due to deteriorating health of his brother Andrew.

A statement from his management company said: “His brother Andrew’s health has taken a turn for the worse, and Peter has made the decision to be with him and his family at this time.”

The singer now plans to bring his ‘Up Close and Personal’ show to The Venue on January 26.

Fans with tickets for Saturday’s show can use them for the new date or get a full refund by contacting the box office on 0845 815 9709.
