Tragic Jade Goody's mum has taken a second sweary swipe at her ex son-in-law Jeff Brazier, as he supports his son Bobby in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.
Sixty six year old Jackiey Budden was reportedly overheard calling Jeff, 44, a “c**k" recently, after she secretly turned up at the National Television Awards to watch her grandson Bobby's win for EastEnders.
Jackiey, who'd apparently bought her own ticket to the event, was said to have been heard saying: "I didn’t allow them to know I was there. I didn’t want to see their dad. He’s a c**k. But I’m going to wait until they’re older before I let rip," according to The Sun.
Jackiey's daughter Jade sadly died aged 27 in March 2009, after a battle with cervical cancer. Now, in an interview with MailOnline, Jackiey has told her side of the story, laying into Jeff once more.
She explained: "When I came out for the NTA Awards, I'm loud and it's the drink and someone went, 'Oh I bet you're really proud', and, 'How do you get on with Jeff Brazier,' and I said, 'He's a c**k.'
"Next minute I'm on the internet and all over the papers. As I came out of the O2, someone overheard me say it, so they sold the story."
Jackiey continued: "I haven't got a problem with [calling him that]. He's been a c**k for f*****g nine years. Bobby doesn't need that stress on his head. He's my grandson."
But Jackiey was full of praise for Bobby himself, when she learned he would be appearing on the show, back in September. She had said it was going to be just like watching her late daughter on screen when Bobby stepped onto the dance floor.
Bursting with pride, she told The Mirror: "I’m over the moon, and he’s just stepped in his mum’s shoes — he’s in Jade’s trotters.
"He’s been born to bring Jade back as himself because he’s the spit of Jade — he’s got his daddy’s head. It will be like watching her on telly."
Jackiey also explained to the publication that she is close to Bobby, but he is often busy with his work commitments at EastEnders.
The BBC soap is filmed in Hertfordshire, and Jackiey lives in South London, meaning it is hard for the pair to see each other often.
She revealed: "We always text though, which is lovely. He likes to keep an eye on his nana, just like Freddie does."
