She told how it felt like “her world had ended” after the family received the dreaded knock on the door and had to identify the youngster.

The former primary school teacher said: “I just collapsed on the floor and it felt like the end of the world.

“It didn’t feel real. I remember looking at his face and his hair was still perfectly gelled and he still had his little stubble.

“He was nearly a man, but to me, he was my little baby brother.”

The teen was stabbed in the heart by private schoolboy Joshua Molnar, but a jury accepted he had acted in self-defence.

Three years on from Yousef’s brutal murder in 2019, the family opened up about their grief in the new documentary.

Jade had told how Yousef, who had a scholarship to the £12,000-a-year Manchester Grammar School, had compared it to “Hogwarts”.

She has kept the clothes that he was stabbed to death in and pointed out the tear in his puffer coat where the knife punctured him in the doc.

She continued: “It puts it into perspective, doesn’t it. Yousef had a pound in his pocket in Hale Barnes.”

Jade has been through a “living hell” after her mum struggled with losing Yousef and died herself “from a broken heart” last May.

“She would probably be happy that she was passing away so that she could be with Yousef,” she said.

His mum Debbie had told previously told filmmakers how she touchingly still wears her son’s socks to feel close to Yousef.

She became isolated during lockdown as she was still deeply affected by her son’s killing and died in hospital from suspected sepsis.

Jade named her baby boy after her late brother in a touching tribute to the teenager.

Jade previously told The Sun: “It’s so nice that Yousef’s name can live on, and that we have a focus, something positive to come out of everything that’s happened.”

Her brother Yousef, a scholarship pupil at Manchester Grammar School who dreamed of being a heart surgeon, was stabbed through the heart by a friend.
