The 55-year-old told the Sunday Times Magazine: “I even thought I had MS – I had to use a walking stick because my legs were so weak. I also couldn’t work. I was on the verge of a breakdown.

“I’m much better now but my heart is broken. Ben’s broken my heart and his dad’s, but I will not hear anything against him.

“I don’t think he understands what he’s done. I’ll go on loving him and sticking up for him until I die.”

Olly, 32, has also spoken to the magazine about the rift. He added: “We don’t speak to my twin brother and that’s been extremely difficult. Long before X factor there were problems between Ben and his girlfriend and our family.

“He made the decision not to speak to the family… But the door’s always open for him to come back.”

The arguing was always there, but what topped it off was when Olly missed Ben’s wedding to compete in the X Factor semi-finals, (a good excuse no?), and Ben slammed him for not attending.

He spoke to the News of the World about his wedding day.

“Something was missing and that was Olly. It’s clear people like Simon Cowell are more important to him than me…, he said”

“Our family was torn apart because of The X Factor. Things have got to the point where if I have children, I don’t even want Olly to meet them.

“I watch my brother – the same person I shared a womb with – on TV now and it’s like I don’t even know who he is.”

Oh you two, please make up!
