I’m not as daft as I Luke on the telly

Bros star blasts back after BBC show mocked

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Bros star Luke Goss has hit back at crit­ics who ridiculed the band’s doc­u­men­tary, claim­ing, “I’m not stupid”.

The 90-minute Bros: After The Scream­ing Stops be­came one of the fes­tive sea­son’s most pop­u­lar shows on iPlayer after it was aired on BBC Four last month.

But the sib­lings’ at­tempts at phi­los­o­phy had view­ers in stitches – and re­sulted in them be­ing mocked on­line.

In one scene, Luke is filmed say­ing: “Rome wasn’t built in a day... but we don’t have the time Rome had.”

But Luke, 50, said: “There is a con­tin­gent who like a freak show, they will al­ways take the p***.

“But if that is their con­tri­bu­tion to the uni­verse then I pity them. I’m kindof sick of be­ing ridiculed. I fo­cus on the good peo­ple out there.

“Of course there are funny mo­ments. We spoke pas­sion­ately and spon­ta­neously.

“We’re work­ing-class Lon­don boys. Our books weren’t books, they were record sleeves. I know what I said about Rome was funny. I’m not stupid.”

A cam­era crew fol­lowed the pair as they pre­pared for a sell- out re­union gig at Lon­don’s O2 Arena al­most 30 years after they were last on stage to­gether.

Matt, who is based in Las Ve­gas, said: “For us it was an elab­o­rate ther­apy ses­sion deal­ing with 28 years of pain. Fes­ter­ing pain.”
