Jack Tweed’s mother has said he will never find anyone quite like Jade Goody again.
Mother-of-two Goody, who married Tweed in February, died last month following a battle with cancer.
Earlier this month, Tweed was sentenced to a 12-week jail term following an assault on a taxi driver after a night out.
Tweed’s mother Mary told New!: “I think he will find it very hard to find somebody like Jade.
“She was his first love and he won’t find anyone quite like her.
“They were such good friends, too. When Jack was first with her, they’d be on the phone for hours.
“I was shocked, because he’s normally so quiet.
“I really couldn’t believe it.”
Asked whether it will take Tweed long to find someone else, his mother said: “I think he will take things slowly.
“I really cannot see him finding anyone for a long time.”
She also told the magazine that her son had said he did not want prison visits.
She said: “I think he’s finding things tough and if he sees people, it will make him feel worse.
“I’d like to see him, but I speak to him most days on the phone, so it’s ok.”
