Please help!

We’ve recently developed an issue with our lights in the bathroom. The ceiling is a false ceiling and there are 6 spotlights in the false ceiling. The spotlights take the lightbulbs I’ve attached as a picture (Led Gu10 5.5W Warm White 2700K). Having replaced the bulbs, we now have lights with greatly reduced brightness, if I take out some of the bulbs then the remaining bulbs are slightly brighter but not like they were when we bought the house.

Could the lack brightness be anything to do with the wiring? We have one bulb in and it is barely bright enough to be able to see.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Feel free to invite others to the conversation!

No pic attached.

Has there always been these particular bulbs or has the issue only started when you changed say, halogen to LED?

What are the lumen values on the bulb? Makes more sense than the wattage nowadays, although higher wattage should mean brighter, not always though

They’ve only started since the bulbs have had to changed - the lumens are 35, but I’ve also tried 55 too.

probably lidl or b&q specials. more light from a candle, with less fire risk.
