Jade Goody's ex urges Strictly star Bobby Brazier to lift ban on nan

EXCLUSIVE Jade Goody’s ex urges Strictly star Bobby Brazier to lift crowd ban on nan Jackiey for tonight – after she was banished following THAT row with dad Jeff

  •  EXCLUSIVE: Jack Tweed says Jade would want her mum to be at the studio 
  •  Jackiey is banned amid an ongoing feud with Bobby’s dad Jeff Brazier
  • Jack said his ex mother-in-law has ‘an absolute right’ to watch her grandson

Jade Goody’s mum Jackiey Budden has ‘an absolute right’ to watch grandson Bobby Brazier at the Strictly final live tonight, her ex-husband has said.

Jack Tweed said Jade would want her mum to be at the studio to watch the 20-year-old dance on one of the biggest television events of the year.

But Jackiey is banned amid an ongoing feud with Bobby’s dad Jeff Brazier – who she said had been a ‘c**k for nine years’ in an interview with Mail Online earlier this month.

The 66-year-old has not been to any of the Strictly shows and is due to miss the final when Bobby takes to the stage with dance partner Dianne Buswell tonight.

EastEnders star Bobby will be battling it all out for the Glitterball trophy against Layton Williams and Nikita Kumzin and Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola.

Bobby was the bookies’ favourite to win Strictly but has since dropped behind Coronation Street star Ellie.

Jack, 36, who helped bring up Bobby with mum Jade before she died of cancer aged just 27, has now called for Jackiey to be allowed to watch.

He told MailOnline: ‘I think it’s only right Jackiey can go to the final. She has played a big part in Bobby’s childhood.

‘I know it’s what Jade would want. She would want peace and everybody to get along.

‘I know Jackiey can be outspoken. She speaks before she thinks and Jade was exactly the same.

‘That will never change and it never has. She is who she is and we all know that.

‘But she has an absolute right to be there. It’d be very sad if she isn’t.

‘She is Bobby’s nan at the end of the day. Jackiey would not claim and has never claimed to be perfect.’

Jack urged Bobby to let her watch.

He added: ‘I think it’s the right thing.

‘I think there’s a good chance he will win on Saturday night and it would be very special if she could be there.’

Jackiey refused to comment when approached on Friday.

But was pictured looking heartbroken as she visited Jade’s grave at  a cemetery in Epping Forest, Essex earlier this week.

Jackiey sobbed as she polished the headstone and lay images of the reality star with Bobby and his younger brother, Freddie, 19.

One of the images she placed on the grave showed Bobby and dance partner Diane, 34, dancing on Strictly with the words: ‘Doing Jade proud’ laid on top, while she also left childhood shots of the boys.

Because of her falling-out with TV presenter Jeff, maternal grandmother Jackiey has watched him from her home in Bermondsey, south London.

Tensions flared after Jackiey has repeatedly slammed Jeff calling him a ‘c***’ when watching Bobby pick up a gong at the NTA’s and later in an exclusive chat with MailOnline.

Speaking outside her flat earlier this month, Jackiey fumed: ‘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.’

When asked if she said it and why, Jackiey fumed: ‘Of course I said it. I haven’t got a problem with (calling him that).

‘He’s been a c**k for f****** nine years.

‘Bobby doesn’t need that stress on his head. He’s my grandson.’

But Jack, who was married to Big Brother star Jade when she died, said his ex-wife would have been horrified by the comments.

He said: ‘Jade would not want that. She would just want peace for everybody. That is what is important.’

Unlike Jackiey, Jack, who now shies away from the limelight and works as an electrician with his dad, enjoys a good relationship with Jeff.

He said: ‘I get on with Jeff. We’re not close mates and we don’t speak all the time but it’s all very civil and that is the main thing.’

Jack is still in touch with Bobby and Freddie who he spent time with as children before their mother Jade passed away in March 2009.

He gushed: ‘Bobby is absolutely amazing. I see a lot of Jade in him. He has fantastic stage presence and lights up the room and the television when he is on.

‘He has that unique and cheeky personality that Jade had. He’s smashing it and I am very proud of him.

‘It’s the first time I have ever watched Strictly. Jade would be over the moon to see him do so well and would be at every show I am sure.

‘It’s great to see. She would be immensely proud. In the house when he was very young, the music was always on, Jade was always dancing and I am sure he picked up some of it from that.

‘He’s a very confident lad and always has been and I can see Jade in him a lot.

‘He looks like her and carries himself like she does in a cheeky and loveable way.

‘He lights up the room you can tell.’

But Jack has issued a warning to Bobby about life in the limelight after drawing on his own experience and those of Jade.

The pair entered Celebrity Big Brother in 2007 and Jack said ‘snakes’ tried to get close to Jade.

He described show business as a ‘rough game’.

He added: ‘I would say to Bobby to be careful, especially the more successful he gets.

‘I know he has good people around him and he has a good head on his shoulders and his dad Jeff is looking after him.

‘It’s very hard to trust people in that industry. I found people constantly trying to turn you over and out to get you for their own benefit.

‘It’s the nature of the beast. A lot of people were going behind Jade’s back to make money from her.

‘It’s about greed. That world is full of snakes. Bobby I am sure will be careful of that. It is a rough game and I have told him that.

‘Jade had a lot of fake people around her. They were trying to be her mates but did not have her best interests at heart at all.

‘Bobby needs to be careful of that. But he has good people around him and that is what is important.

‘He has the world at his feet.’
