Peter Andre has been rushed to a hospital after complaining of stomach pain, according to a statement on his official website.

The singer is undergoing test and scans, to find out the cause of the pain. Andre has been suffering from health problems in the recent past. The singer was supposed to start his UK tour from Saturday.

We are very worried about Peter and at present we do not know what is causing him to be in so much pain, his manager Claire Powell said. Peter is terribly disappointed that he is unable to perform at tonight's sold out opening night.

Katie Price, Andre’s ex-wife, has also tweeted about Peter’s health and wondered why the press needs to know about it.

Andre’s publicist has replied that they had to come up with the statement as the singer was to start an official tour. The show at the Plymouth Pavilions has been rescheduled for December 21.
