  • Jade Goody told she has cancer on TV

    Jade Goody is devastated after being told in the Big Brother diary room that she is suffering with cervical cancer.

    The reality TV star was making a guest appearance on the Indian version of Big Brother, Bigg Boss, in an attempt to redeem herself after last year’s controversy over the alleged racial bullying of Shilpa Shetty on the British Celebrity Big Brother.

    But the star’s good intentions turned into a personal nightmare when she was told on TV that she does, in fact, have cancer.

    PR guru Max Clifford told Radio 1’s Newsbeat: ‘Jade had some tests recently, then she went off to India to appear in the Indian Big Brother.

    ‘Yesterday we got a call from her consultant to say she had cancer of the cervix and so she has to come back straight away.’

    He added that the star is ‘extremely upset and frightened and will be back as soon as they can get her on a plane’.

    He also revealed that Jade was totally shocked about the results, saying: ‘Obviously there were some problems – that’s why she had tests. But she had no idea that would be the diagnosis – she was shocked.’
