Jeff Brazier and his sons Bobby and Freddy are living it up in Dubai! The family are enjoying the February half term break in sunnier climes, but it sounds like Bobby and Freddy have had enough of hanging out with their dad. The TV star shared a photo on Instagram, joking that he can't remember what his sons look like after they abandoned him for their "holiday crew". Jeff, 37, wrote: "My babies. I'm not sure if they still look like this today because I haven't seen them since breakfast when they ditched me for their holiday crew! Wouldn't have it any other way. #Fun #Friends #Grateful."
Fans quickly praised Jeff and complimented him on his "gorgeous" sons, who he shares with the late Jade Goody. "Such gorgeous boys!! You have done a great job raising them yourself!! Credit to each other xxx," one Instagram follower wrote, while a second posted: "They're Jade's double absolutely handsome lads you must be so proud of them both." Bobby, 13, and younger brother Freddy, 12, sweetly posed in their hotel, Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa, in Dubai.

Jeff has been sharing snaps from their family holiday, and couldn't hide his pride when he found his sons reading. "Yessss!" he wrote on Instagram. "When you walk in to the boys' room last night and they're both reading their books! Makes this Dad very happy. #BooksNotPhones." The star of This Morning also shared an idyllic snapshot from his balcony, showing off the hotel's incredible pool and gardens.
Jeff has just finished writing his book, The Grief Survival Guide, which focuses on his experience of bereavement. The single dad not only lost his former partner Jade to cancer in 2009, but he has also witnessed his mum's anguish when she lost both of her parents. Jeff also drew on his experience of hearing stories from his coaching clients who are dealing with loss. The TV presenter was in a relationship with Jade for two years. She passed away in March 2009, leaving full custody of her sons to Jeff.
"They're both reading their books! Makes this Dad very happy," he wrote
The single dad has since found love again with current partner Kate Dwyer, who now lives in the family home. Kate recently spoke about her relationship with Jeff's sons. She took to Instagram to admit she finds living with somebody else's children "challenging". Posting a photo of a drawing which showed herself and Jeff as superheroes, she wrote: "I would be lying if I said that there isn't occasions when living full time with someone else's (teenage) children is both challenging and overwhelming, but then one of them does something like this and it all makes sense."
