Bobby Brazier's gran, Jackiey Budden, revealed she took along a photograph Jade Goody to his Strictly tour.
The 20-year-old EastEnders actor, who made it to the Strictly Come Dancing final, has been wowing audiences with his moves while on the arena tour for weeks. During the live shows he has been performing alongside his fellow celebrities including winner Ellie Leach and Layton Williams. Now his proud nan Jackiey has revealed that when she went to watch him perform, she took along a photo of her late daughter and Bobby's mum Jade Goody.
Speaking to The Daily Mail, she said: "I travelled to Newcastle so I could be as close to him as possible. I took a photo of Jade with me so she could watch him, too." "It was important to me that she was there as well. I sat near the front, around some big fans of Bobby's.
One got his attention and Bobby saw me. He knew I was there and that's all I needed to know." Jackiey previously said she hadn't been able to see him on Strictly because his father, Jeff Brazier, would go instead. Since Jade Goody died in 2009, dad Jeff has cared for their sons Bobby and Freddie and over the years, reports have circulated of a rocky relationship between Jackiey and Jeff.
Insiders told the Mail that the tension have made it tough: "Jeff and Jackiey haven't got on for a long time and it has been hard. "It has meant that Jackiey hasn't been able to be in the audience to watch Bobby, things are just too bad between her and his father. "He and his brother Freddie are her only grandchildren and she adores them, there is nothing she would love more than to be there to watch him live." Bobby and the rest of the Strictly cast are now gearing up for his final dance show of the tour on Sunday, 11 February.
