Jeff remembers Jade in his latest tweet.
It has been 9 years since Jeff Brazier’s ex, Jade Goody sadly passed away from cervical cancer.
And now with the #SmearForSmear campaign reaching new heights, with more and more women being encouraged to take a smear test, Jeff took to Twitter to tweet his support in Jade’s memory.
The father of Jade’s two children tweeted: “Fear of finding out doesn't just occasionally lead to irreversible consequences, it can also leave the ones you love totally heartbroken in your absence.
"If people won't do it for their own health, do it for those that love you."
His tweet came after reality star, Scarlett Moffatt encouraged women to go and get a smear test, on her Twitter page.
Fear of finding out doesn’t just occasionally lead to irreversible consequences, it can also leave the ones you love totally heartbroken in your absence. If people won’t do it for their own health, do it for those that love you.— Jeff Brazier (@JeffBrazier) January 28, 2018
She told her fans: "1 in 4 women do not go for their smear test. Please, ladies, it's 30 seconds of slight discomfort and it can save your life!!! 30 seconds every 3 years!!
"It's no worse than an eyebrow wax & it's definitely less painful than an eyebrow thread, I promise."
She also commented on Jeff’s post with four heart emojis.
Following Jade’s death in 2009, BBC News reported that doctors had seen a huge rise in women booking appointments.
Meanwhile, Jeff who will be getting married to TV presenter, Kate Dwyer in October, has said that his two boys will be his best men.
He told The Mirror: "They are so excited and have already been working on their speeches.
"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."
