Jamal died in February aged 31 due to cardiac arrhythmia which is caused by “having taken recreational drugs,” Brenda recently confirmed.

Appearing on Lorraine last month, Brenda said: “For me it’s important for my mind to keep busy because if you’re left with the silence then you’re left with lots of different thoughts.
