Peter Andre shocked fans with a throwback photo of his brother Michael – as they thought he was the "spitting image" of Peter's son Junior.

The reality star took to Instagram on Thursday (May 19) to pen a sweet birthday tribute to his sibling, who he thought looked like pop singer Bruno Mars.

Peter shared two snaps of his beloved brother Michael in front of his 1.8million followers.

The first photo was a selfie showing Pete and Michael, but the second was an old photo harking back to Michael's days as a young schoolboy.

Young Michael was rocking a curly hairdo and a smart red and white shirt.

Mysterious Girl singer Peter wrote: "Big happy birthday to my Brother Michael. Hope you don’t mind me using your old school photo. Very Bruno Mars.

"Love you brother and have a great day @mrmichaelandre1 @brunomars"

Michael replied beneath the post: "Thank you brother!!!! Love you man"

Peter's fans loved the sibling snaps and many rushed to send their own birthday wishes to Michael, but it's clear the commenters thought he looked a lot like Peter's son Junior.

Although Peter's proud of his son, the doting dad admitted he had fears for his son entering the music business.

He told new magazine: "Of course, there's a lot of fear, because you get thrown into the lion's den. But I'm hoping that with everything I'm telling him on a daily basis, he will be OK.

"We sit and we talk about things, and he knows I'm right next to him the whole time. It's unbelievable how similar we are."

Peter added: "Like me, he wanted to be an actor but he also has a talent for songwriting,"
