Is this on I Player? Sounds riveting!
The link is in the first post.
We watched this last night. Matt's inability to string a coherent sentence together was obviosuly a highlight, but I enjoyed the programme in its own right as well as for the (many, many) dimwit moments!
They are both annoying - especially Matt - but in a way it's endearing that the very things that make them annoying also annoy each other, hence rubbing each other up the wrong way all the time.
I'm astounded they still have lots of fans meeting them at the airport.
This was totally gross but I did find Matt kind of hot in a weird way. OBVIOUSLY he'd need to have some kind of gag in
I remember seeing Matt in some episode of Mel B’s reality show a few years ago where she was trying to set him up with a bunch of vacuous LA gold diggers. They made him look intelligent.
This was incredible
Almost as if someone had TIPPED THEM OFF
I couldn't understand why people were banging on about it, but its fucking hilarious, if you'd never heard of them, you'd assume it was a parody.
Fucking Facebook. You need an account to view anything on there.
I think that’s our Kitty Kat’s sister Good work, Kitty Kat’s sister.
Sorry, I’m too lazy to post all 25 of them individually, but maybe someone else will.

I’d forgotten the “epitome” bit
How have Bros themselves reacted to it? Are they running with it or being all POMPOUS and RIDICULOUS about the whole thing?
I wonder how involved they were in the final product? On the one hand the producers surely knew they were hanging them out to dry a bit with all the ludicrous quotes and petty strops, but on the other it did feel very stage managed in places and their hand in it was obvious - the dedication to their mother and sister at the end for example.
Which leads to the obvious question of how much WORSE it could have been?
They are clearly not very intelligent and quite delusional so I suspect they are loving the attention.
Their thickness makes them quite likable.
I agree, they haven't actually come off badly- it's more "misguided" than anything else.
I think they must have been aware of the staged items (the flights, the crowd waiting outside etc.) and clearly had some involvement, but I'm not sure they're intelligent enough to realise they come off as such, if that makes sense. Was it actually made for the BBC or by themselves and then sold on?
Just watched this now. It's quite the piece of TV. So MANY quotes!
I'd probably do them both.
I must admit I did notice that Luke's nipples were quite striking.
Matt Goss really has all the one liners.
I'm 12 minutes in and this is already fucking GOLD. "Unintended Partridge" could live on this for months...
Bugger me @ the airport scene - actually loads of fans.
Oh, Luke got the bigger airport welcome. Well, well.
The "conkers" conversation.
"I can live with it"
Oh, he's laugh a minute, absolute quality.
Unsung hero of the whole piece: Luke's endless collection of sleeveless metal t-shirts and his cannabis leaf sweatband.
Oh my LIFE!
Why is everyone surprised at this?
IT WAS THEIR OWN DOCUMENTARY AND WAS MASSIVELY SET UP!
I can't with this documentary
I suppose because they come off quite wanky during the rest of it, I didn't really think about that...
My favourite bit was definitely Matt throwing a strop over Luke's perfectly reasonable suggestion that the keyboard player should come in 2 bars earlier, the fantastic shouting match that followed and Matt still being in an absolute cunt of a mood the following day. What a DICK.
Has Matt Goss sold 5 million albums as a solo artist? I keep hearing talk of this?
Wikipedia CLAIMS that but I SAY "AS IF!"
That would make him more successful as a solo artist than Menly C, who at least has had a few solo hits and 1 hit album to her name. I'm calling fraud on that claim.
They seem quite damaged by fame really.
I'd still love to hear the Craig Logan perspective.
As if wikipedia is a reliable source when anyone can edit it. He probably wrote it himself.
There's no source cited. Someone challenge it. Where's Madison when you need him?
After the screaming stops... you get to host a night of programmes on BBC Four.
That is if you're Matt and Luke Goss, whose fly-on-the-wall documentary was such a hit they've been invited back to host A Night In with Bros next month.
According to the BBC, the evening of "curated" programming will be inspired "by their childhood, their musical influences and long careers".
"We can't wait to share this special evening on BBC Four with our fans," said Matt.
"This night on BBC Four is a way of saying a big thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way," added twin brother Luke.
The Goss brothers shot back into the national consciousness last year thanks to After the Screaming Stops, a warts-and-all look at their '80s pop stardom and 2017 reunion.
The film - which will be shown again as part of the boys' Night In - became a viral sensation and led to the siblings announcing additional tour dates this year.
"Our documentary has been supported from day one by BBC Four... so it was an honour being asked to create an entire night of entertainment," said Luke.
"We're so excited to take a walk down memory lane and share some of our most favourite moments that have led us to this point," said Matt.
According to the BBC, the evening will see the 50-year-old brothers introduce "nostalgic" clips from the BBC archive and interview "specially invited" guests.
Cassian Harrison, BBC Four's channel editor, said it was "an absolute joy to welcome Matt and Luke to BBC Four for a whole night of their unique wisdom and warmth".
Watching A Night In With Bros now. Or rather I've managed about 45 minutes of it and am going to bin it. Excruciating.
I saw Katherine Ryan was on the "Evening With..." and was going try and find her bit.
