BROS star Matt Goss has revealed he didn’t see his twin brother Luke for two years during lockdown.
The 56-year-old struggled being on his own during the difficult time and things got so bad at one point that he was left questioning “if he wanted to be here.”

Speaking about hitting rock bottom, the singer admitted: “There are times when I have thought that I don’t think I can continue.
“That’s the honest truth and is a tough thing to say.
“I have looked left I have looked right and I have looked I’m front and behind and there is nobody there.”
Things were particularly hard because he couldn’t see his brother and he doesn’t have any other family.
He explained: “I’ve spent two years by myself almost, in my home.
“I didn’t see Luke for two years. I don’t have a family.
“I have Luke …and that’s it. I don’t have a family, I don’t get to offer that to my partner.
“I’ve had to ask myself the question… do you want to be here?
“And the answer is yes I do, but there have been times when you just want people to hear you.”
You’re Not Alone
EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.
It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.
And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.
Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.
That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.
The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.
Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.

Matt continued: “It’s been a long journey for all of us.
“I have spent a great deal of time alone. Sometimes people think you are invincible and you are a tank.
“There have been times when I thought I was going to literally drop.”
Matt’s album The Beautiful Unknown is released on 25th March. Matt will be touring the UK signing albums in London, Kingston upon Thames, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Coventry, Newcastle and Sheffield.
