Jade Goody's widower Jack Tweed paid tribute to her on what would have been her 40th birthday.

The Big Brother star, who tragically died after a brave battle with cervical cancer in March 2009 when she was just 27-years-old, would have celebrated the milestone birthday on June 5.

Jack, who married Jade just weeks before her untimely death, marked Jade's birthday by posting a picture of her on social media.

He captioned the heartbreaking post with Jade's date of birth and a love heart emoji.

Jack, 33, visited his late wife's grave over the weekend to remember her, it's claimed.

A source told The Sun: "Jack will never stop loving and missing Jade. The years may pass by but it doesn’t get any easier to deal with.

"He will spend the weekend, as he always does in significant anniversaries and parts of Jade’s life by paying his respects privately at Jade’s graveside.

"Jack has tried to move on with his life since Jade dies but he has come to accept he will never meet anyone who comes close."

Earlier this year, Jack marked the anniversary of Jade's passing with a post on social media.
