Jade Goody's mother Jackiey Budden has paid an emotional Christmas trip to her graveside
Jackiey Budden made a Christmas visit to her daughter Jade Goody's grave.
The 'Celebrity Big Brother' star, who lost Jade to cervical cancer on March 22 this year, was pictured teary eyed at her daughter's graveside, which has been decorated for the festive period.
Jackiey, 51, said: "She always loved this time of year and I couldn't bear the thought of her not having her own tree.
"So I have this one with all the decorations and made sure everything is how Jade would want it."
She added: "Jade's legacy lives on and is strengthened every single time a young women goes for a smear test when she wouldn't normally have bothered."
Jade - who was survived by her two sons, Bobby, six, and Freddy, five, who now live with their father Jeff Brazier - revealed before her tragic death that she had ignored a letter telling her to go to hospital following abnormal test results.
Her widower Jack Tweed is currently in custody awaiting trial for the alleged rape of a 19-year-old girl. He has denied the charges.
