Jeff Brazier and Kate Dwyer announced their engagement in October, and are getting ready to spend an extra-special Christmas together with Jeff's two sons, Bobby, 14, and Freddie, 13. Earlier in the week, Kate shared a festive photograph of her with "the best" boys – and Bobby in particular is shooting up – now towering over his famous father! Kate captioned the photo, which was uploaded on her Instagram account,: "Posting this makes me super happy for many reasons – these boys are the best at look after me. And yes, @bobbybrazier is over 6ft." Freddie, meanwhile, looked the spitting image of Jeff in the picture, with both father and son sporting the same blonde comb-over and wide grin.

Kate has certainly made a mark on Bobby and Freddie. Jeff – who has single-handedly raised them since the premature death of their mother, Jade Goody, in 2009 – revealed to HELLO! that he had got their approval before popping the question. He said: "Both boys were intrigued by how it would work, how I'd do it. They said. 'What will you do, Dad, if she says no?' I said, 'I don’t want to be complacent, but I think we're alight.'" Jeff also told us that both his sons will have starring roles at the wedding – which will be "somewhere hot" next summer. "The boys will be my best men. It means a lot to me, for them to be such a huge part of the wedding."

Jeff and Kate sound like they have a wonderful Christmas planned too. Jeff told HELLO! that neither of them will be spending too much time in the kitchen, thanks to Kate's parents taking over. He said: "For the past three years Kate's mum and dad have done the cooking which is very, very good for me. I know at one point I'm going to have to put the armbands back on and start doing a bit of the cooking myself because I do actually enjoy it. but probably not on that scale!"
