Jade Goody’s sons Bobby and Freddie are set to go broad next weekend to escape the reality TV star’s funeral, according to the papers.
The News Of The World reports that their father Jeff Brazier is taking them to Australia for three weeks after both he and their grandmother Jackiey Budden decided they would be too upset to attend the former Big Brother star’s funeral on Saturday.
During their trip they will visit the Gold Coast as well as the jungle used in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
“To say the boys are excited is the understatement of the year,” a friend of Jeff’s told the paper.
“Jeff knows how much they loved their mother but he feels they need to get right away from the media glare. You can’t get much further away than Australia.”
The friends added: “Jeff realises there is an argument for the boys attending the funeral and staying here.
“But he thinks there is a much stronger argument for them to just get away from it and remember their mum as she was.”
Jade had also stipulated that she did not want her boys to attend her funeral – as she hated the idea that their last memory of her would be “in a box surrounded by people crying”.
