Rhys Thomas and the Kemp brothers are making a Spandau Ballet mockumentary for the BBC

BBC Four had an unexpected hit with their Bros documentary After The Screaming Stops.

Now the broadcaster is making a spoof film about another pair of sibling pop stars from the 1980s: Spandau Ballet's Martin and Gary Kemp.

Both brothers – who appeared in the band alongside Tony Hadley – are taking part in the parody, All Kemps Are True, which is now in production.

After a read-through on Monday, Martin tweeted that it was 'so much fun!!!'

And Thomas – who previously made the spoof Brian Pern rock mocumentaries with Simon Day – also tweeted from the read-through.

Both Kemps are also actors, having started with the 1990 movie The Krays. Gary appeared in the Bodyguard with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, and Martin was in EastEnders for four years – as well as making a notable cameo in The Life of Rock with Brian Pern.

Thomas's last spoof for BBC Four was his annual A Year In A Life Of A Year round-up, which featured the show Radiator Bleeding with Christopher Ecclestone.
