One fan wrote: "Brenda the brave - breaking new ground. Lots of love & admiration for your initiative." A second added: "Aww thinking of you. You are so brave when I see you on Loose Woman."

A third replied: "To be honest Brenda, there isn’t a day where I don’t think about your beautiful family, it’s just so sad that it has to take such a wonderful person away. I will be thinking of you on his birthday."

Jamal died after taking recreational drugs and consequently suffering a cardiac arrhythmia which is an irregular heartbeat, either too fast, or too slow.

Brenda had such a close bond with her son 

Since her son's passing, Brenda has set up the Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust foundation which will focus on combatting homelessness, supporting people with mental health issues and providing children with essential life skills.

Talking about the trust on a special episode of Loose Women, she said: "Jamal was all about empowering young people. We want to set up an academy for 16-to-21-year-olds giving them an internship within an organisation over a year where they learn everything from the ground up and a homeless sanctuary.

"He said, 'We all die the goal is not to live together but to create something that will live on,' and I'm determined to make sure it will."
