It was Jade Goody's dying wish that her two sons' private education be paid for up until the age of 18 - but now her estate has been hit with a £1 million tax bill, meaning they could be left with nothing.
Over the past month, HMRC has upped Jade's tax bill from £566,000 to £1,035,902, having ruled that business expenses and losses from her beauty salon could not qualify for tax relief.
The news means that Jade's sons, Bobby and Freddie, could be left with none of their inheritance.
Trustee of the estate, Danny Hayward, told The Sun: "Jade was determined to give the boys the education she never had. We’ve paid their private school fees to the end of the year but we can’t after that. Jade would be heartbroken."
He continued: "We intend to appeal and fight to the end in true Jade-style to fulfil her last wishes for the boys."
Jade Goody, who found fame on Big Brother, died in 2009 at the age of 27 following a battle with cervical cancer.
Before she died, Jade said she needed to get her affairs in order to make sure her boys, who were just five and six when she died, would always be financially stable.

She said: "I've got to make a will. I've got to make sure that everything's in place to give my boys the best possible life that I can give them."
"I don't want my boys to have anything but the best education because I know that that will give them the best chance in life. So I'm going to make sure that I pay for them to have the best education possible and they'll know that their mum did that for them."
