Bobby Brazier makes heartbreaking confession

Speaking in The Face, Bobby admitted that he doesn’t feel like he “missed out on a mum”.

He said: “I’m always being told that she’s a hero and that she was funny and that people see me in her on a daily basis, which is nice.

“I’m lucky that [her life was] kind of public, because it means that I can watch videos when I’m feeling strong enough to watch videos. But sometimes I can’t. I will cry if I do,” he added.

Bobby added: “So in a way, I don’t feel like I’ve missed out on a mum. It’s normal life to me. I’ve kind of spent more life without her than I did with her.”

I don’t feel like I’ve missed out on a mum. It’s normal life to me.

The teen was then asked if he missed Jade and he admitted that he doesn’t.

He said: “I don’t. Because I don’t feel like I was with her long enough to miss her.”

Bobby also said that he feels like it’s “unfair” that he missed out on a life with Jade.

He said that he hears all the time about what a “presence” his mum was and said he “would’ve loved to have seen what other people had seen”.

Bobby also admitted he misses “what could have been”.
