Tribute to his mother
Bob has now spoken poignantly about the tragic death of his mother when he was just nine years old.
Talk to OKAY! Magazine, he said: “At this age, you go from someone who has literally been there from the minute you were born, cared for you, loved you unconditionally, laughed with you, cried with you. …created you and turned you into who you are, and then that person is gone.”
Bob’s mother was given six months to live after learning that her cervical cancer was terminal. But, two months later, she tragically passed away, leaving behind nine-year-old Bob and his two brothers.
The reality TV star was later raised by her stepfather. But, he admitted he didn’t face his grief until he was 18.

Discussing how his mother’s passing has affected each member of the family differently over the festive period, Bob explained: “It’s the only time my brothers and I get together and, we don’t talk about it. really, but you can feel that emptiness at Christmas when it comes to our family.
“Even now, half of my family can’t even mention my mother’s name, can’t even talk about her. So it’s awful for some at Christmas.”
The reality star, affectionately known as Big Bob for his bubbly personality, now wants to experience his own tragic experience of family loss to help children going through a similar heartbreaking situation.
