Jack Tweed says late wife Jade Goody would be happy he still speaks to her mum Jackiey

Jack Tweed says late wife Jade Goody would be happy he still speaks to her mum Jackiey

The widower has opened up about his relationship with his in-laws

Jack Tweed has opened up about his late wife Jade Goody and claimed she would be happy that he still speaks to her mum Jackiey Budden.

The 36-year-old suffered a monumental loss when Jade tragically passed away in March 2009 after being diagnosed with cervical cancer which later spread to other areas of her body, including her liver, bowel and groin.

The Big Brother star, who died aged just 27, left behind her two kids with 44-year-old ex-partner Jeff Brazier, sons Bobby and Freddie – who are now aged 20 and 19, respectively.

Jade first rose to fame when she appeared on the third series of the Channel 4 reality show in 2002, before going on to star on season five of the celebrity spin-off in 2007.

In death, the mum-of-two also left behind her own mother, Jackiey, who has kept in touch with Jack following her daughter's tragic death.

Widower Jack explained he's still managed to maintain a good relationship with Jackiey, telling The Mirror: "I still speak to her mum.

"Jackiey is a bit nuts, I love her, she's funny. I still catch up with her and she's come to every single charity event. Jade would be happy that I still talk to everyone."

One month before Jade's death, she married Jack, who says he still sees her kids as his 'stepsons'.

The boys with dad Jeff Brazier.

"Jeff has done an amazing job bringing them up," the internet personality gushed.

"In my eyes and the way I care about them, I look at them as my stepsons, but I don't want to take credit for how Jeff has brought them up."

He added: "Jade would be over the moon how well they're both doing."

Two years ago, Bobby revealed he was back speaking to his grandmother after they lost touch.

Taking to Instagram, he said: “I didn’t see her for ages - for way too long - but I went to see her twice recently.

“And honestly if there’s one woman you shouldn’t underestimate it’s my nan.

“Honestly, she’s like a wizard! It’s nuts.”
