Jade Goody’s former partner Jeff Brazier has told how he sees her in their two sons, a year on from her death.

Speaking about their children Bobby, six, and Freddie, five, TV presenter Jeff said: “When Bobby rolls his eyes, when Bobby’s moody, when Bobby’s just waking up he looks very much like mum.

“It’d be impossible to not see Jade in them because she was a big character – and there’s no way that a big character like her would not have left little traits to remind me that she was around in Bobby and Freddie.”

Jade’s family have filmed a loving TV tribute to her, marking the anniversary of her death following her high-profile battle with cervical cancer.

The star, who shot to fame as a Big Brother hopeful, died at her home in Upshire, Essex, on Mother’s Day 2009.

Jeff explained how he had the idea that the children could send their thoughts to Jade in a bottle. The three held their own ceremony on a beach.

“I knew what I wanted to do. At the same time as the funeral I had the idea of sending some pictures and letters from the boys in a bottle up to, up to Mummy in heaven basically,” he said.

“They just trusted in what I said and they were happy that this bottle, even though there was no lid on it or anything, that it was going to go and reach its destination. So it brought them a lot of comfort.”
