The Love Island star, 30, spoke to host Ranvir Singh on Tuesday about his brother's death by suicide.Llŷr took his own life a year ago after struggling with mental health issues.Alex said his family did not notice any signs that his brother was struggling prior to his death just weeks before he was due to begin medical school.
He also heaped praised on his "brilliant" girlfriend Ellie, saying she helped him deal with the loss of his brother.Dr Alex said: "I met Ellie a little while ago, she's brilliant, her alongside my friends and family have been such sources of support for me.
"There were moments in this last year that I have really struggled and I’m happy just to say that - we need the people around us to support us."There have been times I’ve had to say to my family."Gosh, I’m really finding it tough right now. There is strength to bring people in when you need them." headtopics.com
Ranvir was so touched by his account that she broke down in tears..She then paid tribute to the medic, saying: "I think you're amazing for what you do, with all the pain you've carried. I feel quite emotional speaking to you, because we all think of our own families. So thank you, for everything you're doing."
Dr Alex also told how he and his loved ones coped with the anniversary of Llŷr's death.He explained "the whole family didn't know how we would get through it"."The hardest part of it is you’ll never have an absolute understanding of why.
"Every day I think about my brother as does the rest of my family and of course we think a lot about him. We think alot about "What if?" and I wish we could speak to him and have that conversation."The hardest thing around losing Llŷr was that we feel we didn’t have the chance to help him, and yes, I think it’s very important to look out for change and behaviour in family members and friends who might be acting differently.
"If there’s anything you’re worried about and to ask them how they’re doing. But we also need people to know that when they are struggling they can talk about it, and what I find very hard is that I don’t think Llyr felt that he could say it."It was there and I worry that shame was a big part of that." headtopics.com

Joshua Jackson Hopes ‘Dr. Death’ Makes You Mad as HellThe real villain of the star’s podcast-based Peacock series isn’t killer doctor Christopher Duntsch, says Jackson—it’s America’s awful health care system. I was really hoping some celebrity would comment on healthcare so I can know what’s important to me, fortunately there is Vanity Fair I was fascinated/horrified by this. I think most non-Americans are generally appalled by the health system there, but this is next level. I had no idea how it really operates until I watched this.
