In 2001 Brazier took part in the Channel 4 reality TV show Shipwrecked, in which he and fifteen other people had to stay on a tropical island without any creature comforts. This series was noted for a number of conflicts and factional squabbles during which Brazier appeared to be an amiable and conciliatory figure. After this he took part in the ITV programme Simply the Best, as well as presenting the programmes Dirty Laundry and Big Brother Panto alongside June Sarpong. He then became a reporter for OK!TV.

In 2003 he appeared in Celebrity Wife Swap with his then girlfriend Jade Goody, alongside Charles Ingram (the man who was implicated in the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? coughing episode). In September 2004, Brazier won the five reality TV show The Farm. He also appeared in the Living TV programme I'm Famous and Frightened!. Brazier performed as Aladdin in the pantomime at Chatham, Kent in 2005 and 2006. Prior to this he competed in the ITV wrestling competition Celebrity Wrestling and presented on Challenge TV.

In 2006 he also started presenting the revival of the CITV programme Finders Keepers. Brazier was a panellist on the now defunct ITV talk show Loose @ 5.30!, a spin-off show from Loose Women. He has also appeared in The Match and Celebrity Soccer Six on Sky One, where he played for England as well as appearing on Call Me a Cabbie with Carol Thatcher and Janet Street Porter. He has also been a This Morning showbiz presenter.

In November 2006, Brazier joined the presenting team of ITV2's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me out of Here! Now, alongside Kelly Osbourne in Australia, with Mark Durden-Smith hosting in the London studio.

On December 16, 2006 he was a guest reporter on The X Factor (UK) final live from contestant Ray's home town of Liverpool, and was also a guest reporter live from contestants Same Difference's hometown of Portsmouth on 15 December 2007. He was also the guest reporter at JLS's hometown on 13 December 2008 and at Stacey Solomon's hometown of Dagenham on 12 December 2009.

Brazier has two sons from his relationship with Big Brother contestant Jade Goody, who he was with from 2002 until 2004. They were both born in Harlow, Essex: Bobby Jack (born 2003) and Freddy (born 2004).[1]

They appeared in Wife Swap in 2003 and Jeff was occasionally seen in Jade's LivingTV shows. Goody died on 22 March 2009 [2] and left Brazier full custody of their two children. He did not attend her funeral in April 2009, but instead took his two children away from the media spotlight to stay with relatives in Australia. In 2010 he was a celebrity guest team captain on What Do Kids Know? along with Rufus Hound, Joe Swash and Sara Cox on Watch.

His father Stephen Faldo, was the skipper of THE MARCHIONESS, the key boat involed in the Marchioness disaster. He did not survive.
