"In December 2017, Pete admitted one of his biggest regrets was not spending more Christmases with his late sibling.

"If I could turn back time my wish would be to spend another Christmas with him," said the star. "We were never able to spend Christmas together as we were never in the same country at the same time. The only year we did was the year Andrew sadly died. He's always in my thoughts but especially at this time of year."
