Jeff Brazier has revealed he and his family are still learning to cope with Christmas without Jade Goody .
Nearly ten years on from the former Big Brother star’s death, her brave sons Bobby, 15, and Freddie, 14, are still coming to terms with the loss of their mum.
Jade lost her battle with cervical cancer aged just 27 back in 2009.
Dad Jeff uploaded a personal message on twitter which he hopes can help others struggling with grief while most are enjoying the festive celebrations.
He says time hasn’t particularly helped with the healing process – especially at this point in the year.
"The boys lost their mum ten years ago now," he said. “It took two Christmases to work out that it didn’t actually matter how many presents we had under the tree.
“You might think ten years later it’s surely going to be calming down a bit and they’ll be used to it and it’ll cause them less pain. But the truth is they’re going through teenage changes.
“I was never as good at Christmas as Jade was," the presenter explained.
“She went to extreme measures. She made fake footprints in the snow. It’s not something I would go to that length to do because I’m not as creative as Jade was.”
Jeff revealed the struggles the family still face nearly a decade on from saying goodbye to the boys’ mum.
“You know you love your children. But what happens when the unknown starts to present itself? What do you do when they’re crying for their mum?" he asked on his video on twitter.
“What do you do when they’re being naughty because they’re upset about losing their mum?
"We make the day about the loss first and foremost, their mum and make it about the occasion secondary to that.
“My children want to celebrate Christmas but it’s just different. But it’s OK that it’s different.”
