Exciting times for Bros fans...

The BBC has announced that pop icons Matt and Luke Goss will be returning to our screens following the huge success of last year's most talked about documentary focusing on the band.

Bros: After The Screaming Stops became a breakout success when it aired on BBC Four at the end of last year, and now it has been announced that the channel will be dedicating an entire evening of programming to the 80s pop duo.

Bros fans are in for a treat as the evening in July will reveal nostalgic clips of the brothers, as well as brand new footage that was filmed following Matt and Luke's recent tour, which came off the back of the documentary success.

Never-seen-before footage will also follow the siblings as they continue in their efforts to rebuild their friendship and fractured relationship.

The programmes will be inspired by the pair's childhood, musical influences growing up, and their long career both in and out of the spotlight.

There will also be new material that features exclusive studio content and a first look at the band's preparations for their imminent shows in London, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.

Matt Goss revealed today: "We're so excited to take a walk down memory lane and share some of our most favourite moments that have led to this point.

"There are going to be quite a few surprises and we can't wait to share this special evening with our fans."

Luke added: "Our documentary After The Screaming Stops has been supported from day one by BBC Four and they have been a joy to work with, so it was an honour to be asked to create an entire night of entertainment.

"This night is a way of saying a big thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way."

The Bros evening will air in July from 9pm until late, during which time there will be another chance to see the Bafta-winning documentary that premiered back in December last year and made everyone fall in love with the band all over again.
