Bobby Brazier has spoken out about his modelling career, revealing he has his mum's good looks.

The 17 year old was scouted in a coffee shop last year by agents and has since starred in many fashion edits with his latest photoshoot appearing in TINGS magazine.

Now, opening up about his blossoming career in the limelight, he's confessed that much of his facial features come from his late mother Jade Goody, who lost her battle to cervical cancer back in March 2009.

Speaking to MailOnline, Bobby said: "I look like my mum, I'm always being told that by everyone. I have her lips and smile – and her eyes."

While his face might have a strong resemblance to his mum, the young star said the "rest of him" is thanks to his 41 year old dad Jeff.

He said: "The rest of me is dad's. As I grow up I'm starting to look more like him."

With his modelling career clearly taking off with him appearing on the runway in both London and Milan, Bobby is now keen to work with his younger sibling Freddie, 16.

However, while agencies have already shown interest in Freddie, Bobby has played the role of protective older brother as he said he's still young.

"It would be great to be in a campaign together, I'd love to," he explained. "He sees what I'm doing and wants to do the same. There's a couple of agencies interested, but he's still young."

It comes as Bobby's dad Jeff recently admitted it pains him to know that his sons did not know their mum Jade "the way we all did".

When asked how Jade’s death continues to impact the boys, he said: “My gosh, they are just so resilient.

“Of course they were so young when she died and it pains me to think they never knew Jade in the same way we all did.

“When Bobby landed his first fashion magazine cover he said he hoped his mum was looking down on him and smiling. And I’m sure she was.”

Bobby recently told The Sun: “Like every boy, you want to think your mum would be proud of you.

“I hope she’s looking down on me and smiling, probably laughing, thinking, ‘Look at Bobby lying in a field in his designer gear’.

“I think she’d love the fact I’m doing these fashion shoots, walking catwalks and trying my best to make something of my life. It makes me smile just thinking about it.”

Jeff admitted he has worries for both his sons as he said of Bobby to The Sun Online: “Teenagers are tricky and this is, of course, a huge challenge as I have tried to protect the boys as much as possible.

“If Bobby makes an error of judgement then I hope it can be turned into a positive thing. Everyone has been so amazing to the boys, so I hope he attracts only positive vibes.”
