THE Tell Me Who I Am twins have revealed all about the harrowing child sex abuse images they discovered in the wake of their monster mother's death.
The feature-length Netflix documentary deals with the heartbreaking story of Alex Lewis, who lost his memory at the age of 18 after a motorcycling accident.
The Tell Me Who I Am twins have revealed all about the harrowing child sex abuse images they discovered in the wake of their monster mother's death
Alex relied on his twin brother Marcus to teach him who he was and about their past, but Marcus chose not to tell him about their abusive childhood in a bid to protect his sibling from further trauma.
However, following the death of their mother Jill Dudley in 1995, the brothers started to clear out the family home, and Alex made a shock discovery.
At the back of their mother's wardrobe was a secret compartment, and when he opened it he found a naked photograph of himself and Marcus as 10-year-old boys, with their heads cut off.
The shocking discovery lead him to ask his twin if they had been abused.

Alex asked Marcus if they had been abused, and the truth finally came out
He tells the camera: "He put his arm around me, and he said 'Yeah it's true' and then we cried. Both of us."
The twins, who are now in their 50s, then had to deal with the fact a Pandora's box had been opened.
Alex obviously had questions but a traumatised Marcus didn't want to answer them.
But thankfully, the documentary helped them finally confront their childhood trauma, which saw their mother sexually abuse them before they were "passed around" and raped by acquaintances.
