Jeff Brazier has spoken out after Jack Tweed's explosive interview about Jade Goody. Jack, who was married to Jade at the time of her tragic death from cervical cancer in 2009, spoke to The Sun about how Jade's final wishes have been "ignored" regarding her sons 15-year-old Bobby and 14-year-old Freddie.

Jack even claimed that he'd been the boys "father figure", and blasted the fact that Freddie wasn't in private schooling - despite the fact that he previously had been, but it didn't suit him - and said that it had been one of Jade's "final wishes".

Speaking to the camera, Jeff said, "I learned an invaluable lesson last year that if you don't share with people how you feel and what you're struggling with - if you are - then people can't support you. And it's as simple as that.

"Ever since, on days like today when there might be something going on in the background, I'm able to talk to people about it and they are able to support me, and as a result, the situation feels a lot better, a lot quicker. So I'm grateful to everybody I spoke to today."

Although he began his next sentence with, "Separately from that..." it seemed as though it could still have been aimed at Jack, as he spoke about a mistake that Freddie had made at the weekend, and shared some advice he'd told his son.

He said, "As I explained to him just now, it's not the mistake you make - it's your actions beyond that which count and dictates what sort of person you are."

Fans of the life coach praised Jeff for being so open and honest about his feelings, with many commenting under the video on Instagram to share messages of support. One wrote, 'I’m all for positivity. You're doing an amazing job with your beautiful family', as another added, 'You’ve done an amazing job, supporting your boys through their grief, and loving and raising them since Jade died, keep doing what you’re doing Jeff, some people will do anything for a bit of publicity.'

Despite seeming to try and rise above the situation, Jeff is reportedly not letting it slide, and his representative told the Mirror Online, "Jeff is currently consulting his lawyers about the Jack Tweed interview."
