JADE Goody celebrity cancer: Jade performs a Marilyn Monroe tribute.

News of The World :”Jade: hours form death.”

Daily Star : “JADE’S FINAL HOURS.”

The People : “Jade Goody to have funeral fit for Cockney ‘royalty’ TV funeral firm plans a farewell that’s like scene from EastEnder”

A fight, a cliffhanger and a punch up with local villains with pool balls in socks?

Fact and fiction is the new reality. It’s the Jade Goody omnibus:

Jade will have a funeral fit for Cockney “royalty” with thousands of fans paying homage to the Big Brother star. Undertakers featured in ITV1 documentary Don’t Drop The Coffin have everything planned for her last journey.

I had that Jade Goody on me shoulders ocne. Proud of meself for carrying her…

Horses called Ronnie, Reggie, Fred and George are expected to pull the 150-year-old hearse – which was used for the 1988 TV funeral of EastEnder Lou Beale – through the streets of Jade’s home area of Bermondsey, south London. Her coffin will be made of oak from Royal Windsor Forest.

There will be 21 cars in the cortege, including a Daimler limo once used by the Queen Mum and a Rolls-Royce formerly owned by the Sultan of Brunei.

Jade’s family asked undertakers F A Albin & Sons to handle the arrangements because of the firm’s long links with Bermondsey.


A memorial to Jade will be placed in a special garden that Albin’s opened near their offices in south London in 1999.

A statue?

People : “Brave Jade Goody tells her two boys: I’m dying”

And look out for Jade Goody Book:” Tadpoles of Death!”

“I never, ever want to leave you because I love you so much. I wish I could stay – but I can’t. The tadpoles had so many babies the doctors couldn’t make me better.

What’s a dread fear of tadpoles called? And don’t get them started on frogs…

So I’m going to Jesus and he’ll look after me. You may not be able to see me anymore but you will feel me with you always. Just think of me and I’ll be with you. When you look up in the sky and see the brightest star, that’s me looking down on you and loving you for always.”

A few private words for the boys.

Mail on Sunday : “Fears grow for Jade as family gather at bedside”

Jade Goody was said to be ‘on the edge of a precipice’ last night as her condition dramatically worsened, leading to fears she may not live more than a day.

Unable to speak and struggling for breath, she was drifting in and out of consciousness.

Sunday Times : “My Week: Max Clifford”

Beyond Parody:

Every day for the past few weeks the phone has started ringing from about 7.30am with inquiries about Jade Goody. I always get an update from the hospital the night before. On Sunday I arranged for Michael Jackson to speak to her. He wanted to talk before he left the country he’s been in Britain to announce his farewell tour. Jade was on Celebrity Big Brother with Michael’s brother Jermaine; they got on very well. She’s not racist. Some of her best friends are black.
