In an interview with Russell Brand, he said: "My mum left home when she was 15, she got kicked out of her home, was living in a squat at 15. She met my dad in a squat in Epsom, they had my brother Nikki, she was 17. A year and a half later she had me. She's 19 years old, with two kids and a drug addict partner in and out of rehab and she raised us. I love my dad, we have a great relationship now but there were a lot of years when my dad was absent and it was my mum that raised me. My mum, bless her, she always taught us right and wrong because of my dad's addiction, me and Nikki steered clear of that."

The photo was positioned alongside a picture of Rosie and her parents on the big day.
