The Mysterious Girl hitmaker's 54-year-old sibling Andrew passed away on Sunday after a battle with cancer.

Andrew and his health crisis featured heavily in the singer's fly-on-the-wall series Peter Andre: My Life, so chiefs at the ITV network decided against showing Wednesday's installment.

A spokesperson for the channel said: "ITV have decided to delay the transmission of this week's episode of Peter Andre: My Life, following Andrew's tragic death.

"After discussions with Peter's management, the producers of the show were initially planning to include a message at the start of the programme, and an end credit in memory of Andrew.

"But after we have given this further consideration, ITV and Peter's management decided that we would postpone this episode."
