It's been 12 years since Jade Goody passed away, and now her sons Bobby and Freddie are finally ready to watch her on Big Brother.

The boys dad Jeff Brazier, who celebrated Bobby's 18th birthday recently, said he knew he couldn't show his sons the series until they were able to open up about their grief.

The 42 year old told the Mirror: "Freddie was always the one that was open to [talking].

"Yet for Bobby, it was too much for him. But recently Bobby said he was ready to read my book The Grief Survivor's Guide.


"I wrote it for the boys about four years ago. It's a real relief to hear him say he's ready to start talking about his loss.

"And now watching things with their mum in, something we are probably going to start soon," the presenter explained.

When asked if Bobby, 18, and Freddie, 16, are aware of their mum's famous Big Brother catchphrases, the doting dad responded: "Yes. They are more than aware of their mum's best work."

Although Jeff himself found fame on Shipwrecked, the Essex native doesn't want his boys to go down the route of reality television.

"While myself and their mum went into the industry by that backdoor of reality TV, it is a very difficult path," he said.

Bobby recently turned 18 and although it was a big milestone in the teenagers life, Jeff admitted that big moments always come with "survivor's guilt".

"Jade would be proud. She deserved to be here right now looking at what she created and played a massive part in making them feel loved."

To celebrate his birthday, Bobby was treated to an incredible display of helium balloons in the shape of Bobby's age alongside a table filled with photos from Bobby's life so far.

Placed on the table were some wrapped up presents while more blue balloons with the number 18 were scattered on the floor.

Jeff's wife Kate shared photos and videos of the stunning display on her Instagram story.

"As if he's 18," step mum Kate wrote next to two shrugging emojis.
