Jade Goody's son Bobby Brazier opens up about his late mum 14 years after her tragic death | The Sun

BOBBY Brazier has opened up on losing his beloved mum, Big Brother icon Jade Goody, 14 years ago.

The young star has been taking the country by storm, in similar vein to his late mum, thanks to a budding modelling career which has seen him walk in fashion shows across Europe before landing the role of a lifetime in the BBC's EastEnders, all by the age of 18.

Tragically, Jade lost her life to cervical cancer in 2009 when her eldest son was only five years old.

Bobby has now candidly admitted that he was too young to have any long-lasting memories of his mother after her death aged just 27.

In a new chat with ST Style, Bobby opened up on the passing of his mum and told the publication: "Not a whole lot. Maybe memories of memories. I'm always being told about her and what she meant to people.

"I guess I know my mum through other people's memories of my mum."

Jade, known as Britain's first reality TV star, rose to fame as the breakout contestant during the high-profile third series of Channel 4 ratings hit Big Brother that also went on to produce fellow household names Alison Hammond, Kate Lawler and Adele Roberts.

Having now been thrusted into the media spotlight just like his mum, Bobby opened up on his experience with fame and being a celebrity and how he thought his mum handled the fame game.

The star said:  "I've never really thought about her experience of fame. I think to assume that anybody's experience of fame is glamorous, or that it will make you whole or happy, is silly.

"It might make some things better, but because of that it'll make other things worse."

Bobby admitted that he still had belief that his mum was around as a guardian to watch over him.

He added of her lasting presence: "Maybe as a guide, maybe as an angel, maybe as a teacher, maybe as a protector".

Bobby lives with dad, TV presenter and life coach Jeff Brazier and his younger brother Freddie.

His on-screen character, Freddie Slater, shares the same name as his younger brother.

Bobby shocked the world when he made his debut on Albert Square and fans have since labelled him and his character as a 'breath of fresh air' to the BBC soap opera.
