JADE Goody: Wedding bans, Jack Tweed’s shoe-in and a miracle…

Daily Express (front page): “Jade Marries It was the happiest and saddest day of my life”

Pages 8 and 9: “Jade the bravest of brides”

Daily Star (front page): “JADE’S WEDDING EXCLSUIVE MOMENT MY DREAM CAME TRUE”

“Jade Goody laughed away the pain” as she married Jack.

“Let’s pray for a miracle,” says Jade.

Pages 4 and 5: JADE’S PERFECT DAY.

“Brave Jade Goody” marries Jack, who “wears a tag under his Armani suit”. No, not a price tag he’s no shoplifter. Tsk!

Page 6 and 7: “THEIR FIRST NIGHT AS MAN AND WIFE MAY ALSO BE LAST”

The Sun (front page): “Find another when I’m gone.”

No, not the media to find another Jade Jack to find another lover.

It’s an EXCLUSIVE ”. (See Express, Star and Mirror.)

“So loud, but such a sweet girl really.”

Thank heavens for Gigi…

But the more we got to know her the more we saw the warm, sweet, desperate-to-please young woman who brought out the protective parent within us.

Shilpa Poppadom can only agree…

Daily Mail (front page): “Goody, we’re Mr and Mrs Tweed”

Pages 4 and 5: “And the groom wore a prison tag.”

And the Mail wasn’t invited.

Daily Mirror (front page): “A PERFECT DAY”

“Tears laughter and applause for Britain’s bravest bride.”

Pages 4 and 5 : “MUMMY’S A PRINCESS”

It’s the lads Bobby and Freddy Windsor.
