Peter Andre Is Very Sick...

Peter Andre who is a big star in the U.K. is just becoming known to most American's with his reality show on E! Network that also stars his wife, Katie "Jordan" Price. It is feared that Peter could have been struck down by the deadly brain disease MENINGITIS. Katie has been at the hospital bedside of Peter since the illness started The doctors gave him a brain scan last night. Peter, 34, underwent the test — and a barrage of others — as he battles to overcome a mystery illness. Peter's representatives confirmed he was being tested for Meningitis. A statement released this morning said: "Following recent tests on Peter Andre at the East Surrey Hospital, it is believed that Peter is suffering from suspected Meningitis. Peter was admitted last weekend, and at this time we do not have an expected date of discharge. Headaches are one reason for having a scan — and can be linked to a stomach complaint like Peter’s. Until all the test results are in, these are anxious days.”

Katie, 28, has been with him during his five-day hospital stay. Pop star Peter has been fighting a mystery illness for two weeks. A pal of the star couple said: “Jordan [as she is also known] is frantic with worry. Obviously she’s desperate to get to the bottom of what’s wrong.” Jordan, who expecting her third child in June, has kept a vigil at Peter’s bedside during his hospital stay.
Peter fell ill with a stomach complaint and was forced to spend a week in bed when they returned to their £2.5million home in Ockley, Surrey. But last Saturday his condition worsened and worried Jordan called 999 [I am guessing that would be 911 in America]. Peter, who has no history of illness, was rushed by ambulance to East Surrey Hospital in Redhill, where concerned medics put him on a drip. Doctors discharged him next day, but he returned that night after another turn for the worse.

The couple tied the knot in September last year and have amassed a multi-million pound fortune. The pair are filming a fly-on-the-wall documentary. But that has been put on hold until Peter makes a full recovery. Peter and Jordan have a son, Junior, and she has a disabled son, Harvey, by soccer’s Dwight Yorke. The third season of the couple's reality show is airing in the U.K. and the first season is airing in U.S.
