  • Probation officers change Jack’s curfew so he can be with dying Jade

    Jade Goody is finding comfort in the fact that Jack Tweed can spend more time with her after probation officials altered the curfew controlling his movements.

    Jack Tweed, who was convicted of two assaults in just six months, will now be able to stay at the cancer-stricken TV star’s bedside on Thursday and Saturday nights.

    I’m delighted,’ he said. ‘I’ve been desperate to spend as much time as possible with Jade and her family.’

    Tweed, 21, has been electronically tagged since January, when he was released from prison after serving just four months of an 18-month sentence for assault.

    A strict curfew meant he had to be at his mother Mary’s house between the hours of 7pm and 7am every day, and was unable to spend nights with his terminally ill wife.

    Probation officials relaxed the curfew for his wedding night and on Tuesday last week, when Jade was recovering from an operation to remove a blockage from her bowel.

    The Governor of Wayland Prison in Norfolk, where Tweed served his sentence, changed the curfew again yesterday to enable him to spend two nights a week with his wife.

    Jade arrived back at her home in Essex yesterday, after doctors agreed to let her spend her final days out of hospital with her family.

    And the star reportedly wept with happiness when she saw her two sons, Bobby and Freddie, whom she hadn’t seen since the christening at the weekend.

    A source said: ‘As soon as she saw the boys she started crying, but only because she was so happy to see them.

    ‘They were happy too. They missed their mum and don’t really understand everything that is happening.

    Jade’s spokesman Max Clifford said last night: ‘The most important thing for her is that she spends the time she’s got left surrounded by her children, her mum and her husband.’
