Martin and Gary Kemp are reportedly "struggling to cope with the double loss" of their mother and father.

The Spandau Ballet brothers are being comforted by family and friends following the family tragedy, reports The Mirror.

Retired printer Frank, 79, suffered a heart attack and was pronounced dead at a Bournemouth hospital where Eileen, 77, was being treated for a heart bypass. She died 48 hours later of "a broken heart". A joint funeral is planned for the couple, who were married for 55 years, next week.

"Martin and Gary adored their parents. This has hit them like a double lightning bolt," a friend said.
