Jade Goody’s eldest son Bobby Brazier has revealed he hopes his late mother will “look down on me and smile” after landing her first fashion magazine cover.
The model, 17, was five when her mother died of cervical cancer at the age of 27, and has since forged a career as a model, covering the cover of Man About Town magazine this week.
The teenager, who made his runway debut at Milan Fashion Week in January, bears a striking resemblance to his late mum.

Bobby, who lives with his father and TV presenter Jeff Brazier, 41, told The Sun how he thought his mother would “love” him “to do my best to do something with my life.”
He said, “Like all boys, you want to think your mother would be proud of you.
“I hope she’s looking down at me and smiling, probably laughing, thinking, ‘Look at Bobby lying in a field in his designer gear.’
The fashion star, who also lives with her younger brother Freddie, 16, recently recounted how he was paying £ 200 a month to stay in the Essex family home.

However, Bobby revealed how he wanted to “make a name for himself” before accepting reality TV shows.
The model revealed how he would ‘definitely’ accept that I’m a celebrity in the future, but his ‘dream job’ would be as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent.
Earlier this year, Bobby watched every part of the pro as he strutted the catwalk with items from the fashion house’s Fall / Winter 2020 collection.
Speaking to MailOnline about his experiences in the modeling world, Bobby said, “Modeling has been a lot of fun, I love it – you have the chance to do something exciting.
“I’m a model at the same time as my apprenticeship; I don’t know if it will still be full-time, we’ll have to see how it goes!

Jade died on Mother’s Day 10 years ago but was able to speak with Bobby and Freddie, who were only five and four at the time, before her death.
After her diagnosis of cervical cancer, Jade’s cancer spread to the intestines, liver, and groin and she died on Mother’s Day in March 2009.
Speaking to Barrow-in-Furness-based newspaper The Mail, Jeff said the past 10 years have been “extremely difficult – that’s the only way I can really put it. There have been ups and downs, but we’ve been through it together.
The star – who was not in a relationship with Jade at the time of her death – went on to say that her sons “are coming of age” and “have become wonderful young men. I am extremely proud of them.
