Big Brother star’s mum seeks comfort at burial site


Jackiey Budden read out loud from the Bible at Jade Goody’s grave yesterday.

The 50-year-old spent over an hour at the churchyard of St Thomas’s in Upshire, Essex.

Jackiey looked engrossed in the Bible passage she was reading – and at times she read out loud,’ says a source.

Jackiey even brought a picnic – she was seen eating crisps and Scotch eggs as she sat cross-legged on the grass.

‘I’m just having lunch with Jade,’ she told photographers.

Meanwhile, funeral director Barry Albin-Dyer of FA Albin & Sons undertakers confirmed Jackiey had started replying to the letters of condolence she’d received.

‘She sat and wrote letters, responding to the thousands that were sent here from well-wishers,’ he tells the Daily Mirror.

‘She made herself at home here, taking off her shoes and chatting with other families, helping them cope with their grief too.

‘She even brought Jade’s favourite mug so she could have a cup of coffee as she sat with her.’
