    Reality TV star Jade Goody dies



    The BBC's David Sillito takes a look back at Jade Goody's life


    Reality TV star Jade Goody has died at the age of 27, her spokesman Max Clifford has confirmed.
    She died at home with her family in Upshire, Essex, overnight on Saturday after a battle with cancer.
    Goody was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2008 but the disease spread to her liver, groin and bowel and she was told it was terminal in February.
    Her mother Jackiey Budden, who was at her side as she died, said: "My beautiful daughter is at peace."
    Goody had been treated at the Royal Marsden Hospital in west London but wanted "to spend all the time she had got left" with new husband Jack Tweed and sons, Bobby, five, and Freddy, four.
    The star died at home at 3.14am on Mother's Day. Her body was taken out of her home shortly before 8am.
    Media interest
    Speaking outside the home, Ms Budden said: "Family and friends would like privacy at last."
    Mourners started arriving at the house to pay tribute to Goody within minutes of the news breaking. They left floral tributes at the gates of her home.
    The star had been christened in a 20-minute ceremony at the Royal Marsden on 7 March while in a wheelchair and was assisted by nurses during the service.
    Goody's illness had featured in the media on a daily basis over recent weeks. [​IMG][​IMG] She was a very, very brave girl and she faced her death in the way she faced her whole life - full on, with a lot of courage [​IMG]

    Goody's effect on screening
    In Pictures: Jade Goody


    She married partner Jack Tweed on 21 February at Down Hall Country House Hotel in Essex. OK! magazine paid a reported £700,000 to cover the event.
    Goody stipulated that the entire amount should be passed on to her sons.
    The wedding was also filmed as part of a documentary series following the star and was screened on digital channel Living.
    Goody, originally from Bermondsey, south London, had been open about wanting to exploit media interest in her battle with cancer.
    She was keen to raise public awareness of the disease and prevent other women from suffering her fate.
    Family friend, Kevin Adams, who was with Goody when she died, said: "I think she's going to be remembered as a young girl who has, and who will, save an awful lot of lives.
    "She was a very, very brave girl and she faced her death in the way she faced her whole life - full on, with a lot of courage."
    'Celebration of life'
    Even in death the cameras will remain firmly fixed on Goody as preparations are made for her funeral.
    Before she died she told those around her she wanted the service to be a "celebration" of her life.
    "She wants it to be a big celebration because it's her final farewell to everybody," Mr Clifford said.
    "She's the world's first reality television star.
    "It will be a very Jade Goody event - exactly the way she wants it."
    Mr Clifford said Goody's children had known their mother was seriously ill. [​IMG] Goody's husband Tweed is awaiting sentence for attacking a taxi driver


    "She sat down and explained that Mummy was going to heaven and that heaven is where people who are ill go to get better," he said.
    "She said when they look in the sky and see a star, that's Mummy looking down."
    Goody had the children christened so they could keep in touch "through Jesus".
    "She has touch the hearts and minds of an awful lot of people worldwide. The closer I got to her, the more admiration I had for her," Mr Clifford said.
    "It takes an awful lot of courage to face death the way she did."
    Mr Clifford added that he hoped Goody's family would be left in peace to grieve. Tweed, 21, is awaiting sentence after he was found guilty of attacking a taxi driver and threatening to stab him after leaving a club in Essex last year. He was jailed for 18 months last September after assaulting a teenager with a golf club.

    I read about this awhile ago on imdb.com. The whole thing is so sad. According to the articles, some in the U.K. aren't exactly fond of her, but who cares. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. I noticed she's almost exactly a year older than me and she's already gone with 2 kids left behind she couldn't even celebrate mother's day with. :(

    even though the entire world knew this was coming really soon, it is still very shocking. We arent prepared to die or people around us dying, but how is that even possible?
    so sad.

    I know she did a lot of bad things in her lifetime, but you could tell deep down she was not an inherently bad person. The thing that is saddest about this is that she died of cervical cancer, and that she's leaving behind two young sons. Some people have criticized her for living out her last several weeks under the glare of the cameras, but she was doing it for her sons.

    RIP Jade, and God bless your sons.

    It is a very sad time for Jade's family. And for the people who criticized Jade for allowing the camera's to film her last months should take a step back and think about what you would do for your loved ones whilst battling cancer. At the end of the day, Jade did what she had to do for her family and until you have been affected by any kind of death in your life you should never asume anything.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Jade and her family. :(

    Yes it is quite sad, and what's worse is that she had gone for several screenings and been checked previously on 3 separate occasions, which is partially why it was so advanced when they discovered it. I think she'd be proud that she has really highlighted a crucial gap in female preventative care, and it's shocking for a lot of us that someone can die so young of cervical cancer. She may not have lived a perfect life, but she did seem like an inherantly sweet person. All the best to her family

    I never once agreed with Jade. In fact, I despised her since I first learned about her, but as someone who works with cancer patients my heart ached for her from the time her diagnosis became known. I am especially devastated for her boys.

    I hate to sound like a PSA, but please get an annual health check (femmes et hommes).

    I feel that she did the right thing to sell all her story, not only to make people aware of the cancer but to raise enough money to keep her family going :) R.I.P jade x

    Hearing of Natasha Richardson's death and now Jade Goody's makes me realise how vulnerable we are as people and how little our time is on earth. We get so wrapped in life that we forget that we all have to die at some point...My heart aches for these women and their families.

    I find this terribly sad how someone whose life was just starting die from such a terrible disease. What she did for her kids was admirable because no one feeling the pain of a quimo will want to be filmed through that, I didnt followed her at BB but I admire her for trying to do the best for her two sons.
