Peter Andre says death of brother gave him 'commitment issues'

Peter Andre has admitted that the death of his brother made him fearful of committing to a relationship.

The singer's world was rocked almost two years ago when his 54-year-old brother Andrew died of cancer.

The reality TV star has now become engaged to Emily MacDonagh and a father to her first child, but he told the Mirror that it was hard to commit himself to someone.

Andre said: "Everything changed when I lost my brother. All my worst fears came out and I was a mess for so long. If you say ‘commitment issues’ it sounds like it’s from previous relationships. But my phobia came from losing him because I didn’t want to lose someone again.

"That threw me into turmoil. But the genius Emily has made me so much better. What helped is that while I’m an emotional thinker she is a logical thinker. Honestly I don’t think I could have got through it without Emily. I would have gone into my own shell."
