Celebrity hairdresser and DJ Pete Zorba dies aged 45 after battling brain tumour

Celebrity hairdresser and DJ Pete Zorba has died at the age of 45 after battling a brain tumour.

Tragically the father-of-two died on Thursday, four years after he was diagnosed with his cancer and told he only had a few more months to live.

The star, who was also a hairdresser for celebs such as supermodel Naomi Campbell, died peacefully, it is reported.

Pete was a regular on the Manchester House scene and played at the Warehouse Project, Parklife and Ibiza nightclub Space.

The DJ also received many awards for his hairdressing and was well known for both of his talents.

His wife Melanie says he refused to give up on life over the last four years as the star went through a number of brain surgeries.

She told the Manchester Evening News: "He had the most amazing four years, he lived life every
day to the fullest.

"Throughout the whole time he was so positive, this was never an option for him. He had such determination."

Pete leaves behind his beloved two children, which he shares with Melanie, daughter Elbie Rae, five, and one-year-old son Billy-Fox.

Melanie has described her baby son as a "miracle" as she only had a mere few days to conceive before her husband underwent another round of chemotherapy.

Pete got to see his son's first birthday just a few days before he died.

Back in 2017, Pete opened up on how he felt about the diagnosis of his brain tumour.

On his response to it, he said: "I just said 'OK' and quite calm about it.

"I am quite black and white about situations. I try to deal with the next step all the time.

"I wasn’t scared for myself, I was scared for my family."
