Jade Goody's Mum Jackiey Budden To Sell Daughter's Belongings On BBC's 'Flog It' After Benefits Cut

Jade Goody's mother, Jackiey Budden, has revealed she intends to sell some of her late daughter's belongings on the BBC show 'Flog It' in a bid to raise some much-needed extra cash.

The 57-year-old has not worked since 1986 after she lost her left arm in a motorcycle accident, but has now been told it shouldn't stop her finding a job.

Jade - who died in 2009 at the age of 27 from cervical cancer - left her mother £20,000, but now says she is £500 in debt.

The gran - who regularly looks after Jade’s sons Bobby, 11, and Freddie, ten - told The Sun: “I’ve applied to go on the BBC show Flog It! and hope to sell some of Jade’s old books and toys.

“The money will help a bit. But I’ll keep some things for the boys.

“I was devastated when they cut my benefits.

“They say I’m fit to work, but I have to take painkillers as my right hand hurts so much because I use it to do everything.”

Jackiey said she has applied for 50 jobs and has been offered four — but is reluctant to accept any as she doesn't want to miss out on seeing her grandchildren.

Last month, Jade's ex-husband Jack Tweed revealed how he struggled to cope following Jade's death.

The 27-year-old admitted he became “addicted” to cannabis, before considering taking his own life.

“After four or five months, I’d have one [joint] every hour,” he told new! magazine. “I used to wake up in the night and roll a joint.

“I couldn’t remember what it was like to be normal.

“I didn’t want to wake up in the morning.”
