Jeff Brazier spoke about the “absolute chaos” he faced after Jade Goody’s death.
The presenter said he and the sons he shared with former partner Jade fell into a “crisis” after she died of cervical cancer.
Speaking to Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster on GB News, he said: “I think for anyone who loses someone, whether it’s a parent or if you lose someone, you’re in a crisis, you’re in the absolute Chaos.
“And it’s not the time to really sit and think logically and rationally about your future and the plan.
“It’s something that takes years to regain a foothold or even feel like it’s halfway there.”
The 42-year-old said his mental health had gotten so bad he had to turn to a charity for help.
“Without the grief encounter, I probably wouldn’t have done the work I did with the boy. We owe so much. And that’s why I always fundraise for them.”

Jeff shares sons Freddie and Bobby with Jade, who died in 2009 after a battle with cervical cancer.
Speaking about the charity, he added: “They understand their fortunate position – and it sounds strange to me to say the fortunate position, but the fortunate position, they’re really where they have the ability to give back, and they enjoy things like that.”
“I hosted a walk and talk event on Mother’s Day which was attended by 80 people. I’m proud to do these things.
“And I’m proud that the guys want to be a part of these things, because I just think that makes us pretty decent people…”
