Married At First Sight groom Bronson Norrish stunned viewers with his tragic history on Monday night.
In the space of five years, he lost two brothers and his mother.
“I really miss my family,” he said. “But I’m very close to my dad now. Losing all the other family members made us realise we’ve only got each other.”
The 34-year-old told TV Week how he managed to cope with the string of tragedies, which began when his brother Sasha was murdered in 2003.
He said that he turned to alcohol after the death of his brother, whose killer has never been caught.
Then when his mum, Sancha, died a year later due to complications in a medical operation, he threw himself into work on a cattle farm.
