Jack Tweed issues warning to Bobby and Freddie Brazier about Celebrity Big Brother

But Goody's widower, Jack Tweed, has issued a warning to his stepsons urging them not to go on Celebrity Big Brother.

Goody rose to fame after appearing on the third series of Big Brother in 2002, where she finished in fourth place.

She re-entered the house with Tweed - who was her boyfriend at the time - for Celebrity Big Brother in 2007.

During her time in the house, she clashed with fellow housemate, Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty, resulting in a major race scandal, the Mail reported.

Tweed said both Brazier boys were beginning to make a name for themselves and going on Celebrity Big Brother "would not be worth the risk".

Speaking to the Mail, he said: "My advice would be to stay well clear. It is not worth it.

"Me and Jade did not have a great experience. It ended in disaster.

"It caused a lot of problems. If they asked me what I think having been on it myself I would say avoid it."

Tweed added: "Jade would be so proud of both of them. I know I am. That show caused major problems. It was a total nightmare.

"They are both doing brilliantly, it just would not be worth the risk. I am sure that is also the official advice they will be getting.

"These reality shows sound great for young and upcoming people but they have negative sides as well. It's not all they are meant to be."
