Jay Blades cried when he could finally read his daughter’s letters

OHMYGOSSIP — Jay Blades cried when he was finally able to read his daughter’s letters.
The 51-year-old star – who couldn’t read until he was taught last summer – was overcome with emotion after receiving a letter from his 14-year-old daughter Zola, who lives with his ex-wife Jade in Turkey.
The Repair Shop’s Jay told The Sun newspaper: “Reading is something most people do every day and I didn’t know it would mean so much to me. It grabs you emotionally.
“It was the first letter Zola had ever sent me — she had never sent one before because she knew I couldn’t read it.
“Reading her letter gave me everything I’d ever wanted but didn’t think I would ever experience.”
Jay – who didn’t have any qualifications when he left school – was diagnosed with dyslexia aged 31, and he would “cover up” not being able to read because he scared about being “exposed”.
He added: “I’ve learned to cover it up and all my life I was nervous about being exposed.
“I take in loads of information at one time — listening, reading people’s faces, watching their mouths and then storing it in your brain.
“When I come back from filming I just zonk out because it’s like information overload.”
As a mature student, he graduated with a degree in criminology at Buckinghamshire New University, where he used software to read out books and help him dictate essays.
He’s used this software over the past 20 years, but Jay admitted he’s also turned to strangers – and his fiancée Lisa Marie Zbozen – for help.
He said: “Once I got a hospital letter that I knew was an important one and I took it into the street because I had no one at the house and I asked someone I didn’t know, ‘Can you read this for me?’
“With my MBE [letter from Buckingham Palace], I could see it was an official letter but I didn’t know what it was stating, so I got Lisa to read it to me.
“I get a lot of fan mail and Lisa reads all of that as well, because if someone has taken the time to write, it is really important. I’d never just leave it. Never.”
