Former Big Brother contestant Alex Sibley has revealed how he helped teach fellow housemate Jade Goody's son Bobby Brazier to drive. 

Big Brother has just returned to television screens across the UK for the first time in nearly six years on ITV.

Sibley and Goody appeared on the third season of Big Brother back in 2002 when the show was still broadcast on Channel 4.

Sibley came third while Goodey came fourth in a series which also featured This Morning and Great British Bake Off presenter Alison Hammond and was won by Kate Lawler.

Jade Goody's Big Brother housemate Alex Sibley taught her son Bobby Brazier to drive

Goody died in 2009 at the age of 27 just seven years after appearing on Big Brother. 

She left behind two sons - Freddie and Bobby Brazier

Bobby has gone on to make a name for himself on TV, rising to fame through BBC soap EastEnders, where he plays the role of Freddie Slater. 

He is also taking part in the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing - partnered with Australian professional Dianne Buswell - and is among the favourites to win the show.

Now Goody's former housemate, Alex Sibley, has revealed he spent some time with Brazier a few years ago teaching him how to drive.

Sibley, speaking to OK! Magazine, said: "I gave Jade’s son Bobby a driving lesson two or three years ago.

"He didn’t know who I was until I told him I was with his mother in the Big Brother house."

The former Big Brother contestant continued: "Paul, a friend of mine, told Bobby that I could take him around for a driving lesson as his dad (Jeff Brazier) wasn’t keen to take him.

"We went for a drive had lunch in Loughton on the way back. He started to loosen up and started to ask me who I was.

"I told him that I was in Big Brother with his mum Jade. He asked me if I liked his mum, I said yes but it seemed Bobby didn’t want to talk further about Big Brother."

Sibley revealed how he spoke to Brazier about his late mother's reality show What Jade Did Next while the EastEnders and Strictly star also opened up about what it was like as a child.

The former reality star said: "It seemed Bobby didn’t like the cameras following him round as a young child.

"It seems he didn’t like the whole Big Brother thing and wants to put out it behind him."
