Jeff Brazier has made a very important announcement concerning his wedding later this year.
The TV star yesterday revealed that his two sons are going to play a seriously special role in his big day – they’ll join forces as Jeff’s best men.
‘They are so excited and have already been working on their speeches’, he told the Mirror.
‘It’s going to be the most emotional moment I’ve ever experienced. It will be a recognition of everything we’ve been through and how strong we are now.’
Bobby, 14 and Freddie, 13, are Jeff’s children from his relationship with Jade Goody. The boys’ Big Brother star mum tragically lost her life in March 2009 to cervical cancer.
Jeff was also keen to touch on life as a single dad, saying: ‘I don’t see it as tougher; you just have to be more organised. It can be like a military operation.’
He continued: ‘Their childhood is flashing before my eyes. I’m having to teach them things like how to cook and use the dishwasher.’
Jeff Brazier is preparing to marry long-term love Katie Dwyer
Jeff – who found fame in 2011 while appearing as a contestant on Channel 4’s Shipwrecked, a show that sees a group of individuals living on a tropical island without home comforts – announced his plans to marry in October last year.
The 38-year-old broke the news that he’d popped the question to his partner of four years Katie Dwyer during a magazine interview.
Jeff and Katie were enjoying a romantic holiday in Ibiza at the time of the proposal.

He told the publication that he discussed his plans with Bobby and Freddie before getting down on one knee.
‘Both boys were intrigued by how it would work, how I’d do it’, Jeff explained to HELLO! magazine.
‘They said, “What will you do, Dad, if she says no?”. I said, “I don’t want to be complacent, but I think we’re alright”.’
