DR Alex George has returned to work at A&E three weeks after his tragic brother’s suicide.
The frontline doctor and reality TV star, 30, revealed last month the heartbreaking news that his younger sibling Llŷr had passed away after a mental health battle.
But today he put on a brave face and returned to work at Lewisham Hospital.
Dr Alex shared a picture of himself in his scrubs and wrote next to it: “Good to be home 💙.”
Fans were quick to send him messages of support with one saying: “You’re a top man, Alex. Keep on doing what you’re doing.”
While others sent multiple heart emojis to show they were sending their love to him in this tough time.
In July Dr Alex paid tribute to the “kindest” little brother, who was 10 years younger, and due to start medical school next month to follow in his big sibling’s footsteps.
Heartbroken Dr Alex wrote on Instagram: “I can’t believe I am actually writing this post.
“I have lost my beautiful little brother to mental health. I love you so much Llŷr. The kindest and most caring soul.
“I was so proud of you starting medical school next month, you would have been the most incredible doctor.
“We are hurting so bad. No words can explain.
“As a family we are devastated. We love you and miss you so much. Please rest in peace x Our boy.”
Dr Alex has been battling coronavirus on the frontline in his role as an A&E doctor at Lewisham Hospital in South East London.
Earlier this year he shared how proud he was of Llŷr for following in his medical footsteps.
Dr Alex posted on Instagram in March: “Brought my little brother to A&E today for work experience, he wants to follow in my footsteps and become a doctor.
“Not going to lie I am proud AF!!! There’s 10 years between us and he will be among the next generation of doctors on the frontline of our NHS.”
