Bros star Luke Goss secretly split from wife of 23 years but ‘still loves her’

Bros drummer-turned-actor Luke Goss has revealed he and his wife Shirley Lewis secretly split three years ago.

The private couple, who wed in 1994, were accused last year of putting on a defiant display on the red carpet at TV BAFTAs at London's Royal Festival Hall with claims emerging they had split.

And now Luke, 52, has confessed that their marriage ended in 2017 as he opened up during a candid interview with The Sunday Times Magazine.

The drummer and singer-turned-actor told the publication how following the breakdown of their relationship he went on a road trip in a bid to mend his broken heart.

Luke also told how he will always love his ex-wife and continues to have respect for her.

Speaking on his road trip to the desert, he said: "I was in a bad place in my life and decided to go camping alone.

"I’d just split from my wife. I’ve never admitted to this publicly but she moved back to England to be closer to her daughter and family.

"We are officially separated now but still best friends. I will love her to my dying day."

It was only last year that the pair hit headlines after reports emerged that they had split up.

A source told The Sun at the time: "Luke and ­Shirley spent weeks at each other’s throats but now their marriage is over for good.

"Close pals have told them to take a breather and not give up on their 25 years together — but Shirley’s had enough.

"Luke is sick and tired of the rows and wants an end to all the stress and negative energy."

Luke, who worked as a backing singer for Elton John and George Michael, married Shirley in 1994.

Shirley, who has one child from a previous relationship, is yet to break her silence on the pair's divorce.

Luke has also starred in numerous films including Blade II (2002) as Jared Nomak, One Night with the King (2006) as King Xerxes, Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) as Prince Nuada, Tekken (2009) as Steve Fox, Interview with a Hitman (2012) as Viktor, and Traffik (2018) as Red.
