My Brother and Me coming to BBC Three

My Brother And Me

In this inspiring documentary TV presenter Jeff Brazier explores his relationship with his brother Spencer, who has cerebral palsy.

Spencer is 24. He has never had a job or a girlfriend and spends his days watching TV and playing computer games. Jeff believes that despite his disability Spencer is capable of living a much more active and fulfilling life. Now Jeff is planning to put his theories to the test.

Jeff and Spencer spend some serious time together while their mum (Spencer’s full-time carer) gets away for a much-needed break, as Spencer moves in to Jeff’s house in Essex. What Spencer doesn’t know is the intense programme that Jeff’s got in store for him. Jeff wants to push his brother to make some real changes in his life – but will Jeff’s tough love prove too much for their already fragile relationship?

Jeff says: “Through embarking on this journey with Spencer I hope to provide the catalyst that will enable him to find himself, his courage and his confidence, break down the psychological restrictions he places on himself and for us to grow close once more after our 15 years of living with some distance between us.”

My Brother And Me is the surprising and uplifting journey of two people finally learning how to understand and accept each other for who they are.
