It’s hard to believe but 1 month ago today you left us Mum. It’s been the craziest and most vulnerable few weeks of my life.

Brian, 39, went on to honour loved ones who have supported him through his grief.

“Thankfully I am blessed with the most AMAZING family. How we have cried but also laughed exchanging our stories on you Mum the Super Woman who shaped our life’s.” (sic)

The Big Brother winner and television presenter then acknowledged his inner circle, and thanked them for their encouragement in the weeks that followed his mother’s death.

Outside my own family I’m also blessed with another family. This family I made myself. It consists of people who love me,that never judge me and with out each one of them over the last 4 weeks I’d have no idea where I would be. You keep me strong,you keep me sane and I’m forever grateful.

Earlier this month, Brian told his Instagram followers that the day his mother died his ‘life changed forever’.

In a post composed on Mother’s Day, Brian reflected on the exceptionally close relationship he shared with Rosie.

Happy Mother’s Day to the BEST Mum EVER.You thought me everything I know from walking & talking to even going to the toilet.From the moment I first opened my eyes on the morning of Tuesday 13th June 1978 you were my EVERYTHING.Now admittedly over the years I may have tested your patience.The time I thought I was Superman and could fly off the roof of the garage,the numerous times I’d insist on giving my sister Michelle a good hair wash by holding her head down in the toilet and flushing it,to more recently when my foot got ran over my the same Taxi 3 times.At 22 when I came out to you and 2 days later went on national television to live in a house for 9 weeks you were always there ready to support me and make numerous excuses for me if needed.The morning of my Wedding Day you were so proud you cried and how nervous you were walking me down the aisle.I ALWAYS looked to you for guidance and support there was nothing we couldn’t fix with a gossip and a cup of tea.You loved watching me on Snap Chat & Insta story and your name would always come up first as having watched.To think I will NEVER see your name appear again breaks my heart.On the 21st February 2018 my life changed forever.To hear you had died still doesn’t make sense,I’m actually still expecting you to walk through the door.Your jackets still smell of you and your favourite tea cup is waiting to be filled.On the morning we buried you apart of me went with you.My life will NEVER be the same again.Will think of you and love you every day until we meet again have the kettle boiling Mum there will be so much to catch up on.❤ “So I'll sing Hallelujah You were an angel in the shape of my mum When I fell down you'd be there holding me up Spread your wings as you go And when God takes you back we'll say Hallelujah You're home”

Directing his words towards her, he reiterated the impact she had on him throughout his life.

I ALWAYS looked to you for guidance and support there was nothing we couldn’t fix with a gossip and a cup of tea.You loved watching me on Snap Chat & Insta story and your name would always come up first as having watched.To think I will NEVER see your name appear again breaks my heart.

Brian finished his Mother’s Day post with a nod to the future.

On the morning we buried you apart of me went with you. My life will NEVER be the same again. Will think of you and love you every day until we meet again have the kettle boiling Mum there will be so much to catch up on.
