Jade Goody And Shipla Shetty In EastEnders Special

JADE Goody: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Jade Goody’s post-reality career, with EastEnders, Shilpa Shetty and…


Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty is being lined up to join the cast of EastEnders. Jade Goody’s pal is in talks with BBC chiefs about a major role in the soap.


Shilpa, 32, recently bought a £10million mansion in Surrey – and will make the UK her base when she marries her London-born millionaire business partner Raj Kundra.

Jade dies. Anyone else smell opportunity? No, no, no….

A family friend said:

“EastEnders would be the springboard to long-term success in Britain – and that is very much in Shilpa’s sights. She knows all about the show as it is a big hit in her homeland – and of course it is popular with a lot of Indians in the UK.” Shilpa was offered a part on the show – as a love interest for Phil Mitchell – soon after she won Celebrity Big Brother in 2007. She turned it down to concentrate on her Bollywood career.”

Shilpa-sort-it-out!!! And who’s this “family friend”? Any ideas:

Her agent Max Clifford said: “Shilpa’s holding meetings with TV executives on a range of projects.”

Daily Mail: “Bolly-wed: Shilpa Shetty to wed tycoon and insists it’s going to be for good”

The couple, who have been together for two years, are yet to make an official announcement out of respect for Jade Goody, who appeared with Shilpa in Celebrity Big Brother.

But an unofficial annoucement is ok.

The SA Times: “30 seconds with Shilpa Shetty Bollywood star and co-owner of the Rajasthan Royals”

Is 30 seconds enough?

How do you feel about the death of former celebrity Big Brother housemate Jade Goody?

It’s taught me a lot. Two years ago we were bickering and fighting on television, and now when I look back it all seems so futile because she’s not even there. Life is so unpredictable, may her soul rest in peace. I have no grudges, we patched up and became friends. I’ve learnt a lot from her — the way she’s lived her life, she’s always made the best of all situations and she’s been a brave girl. I salute her for that.

Touching stuff Shilpa. Just a shame it took Jade’s death for us to hear from her again.
