Coleen Nolan said: “Like I’ve said when Jamal first passed, I didn’t realise how incredible the work he did was.
“For Brenda, what’s been hard is the hope that people don’t forget the incredible work he’s done. One thing that stuck in my mind [is something] he put on Instagram years ago. In his own words, he says ‘the goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.’”
Ruth Langsford added: “Hopefully that will give Brenda strength as well.”
Finally, Janet went on to share her feelings too.
“I know Brenda so well and I don’t want her to beat herself up,” she said. “She was the best mum she could have possibly been.
“We’re all here for you Brenda and we love you very much.”
