Jade Goody reveals Jeff Brazier will have full custody of her two sons when she dies

Jade Goody has admitted she is ‘ready to go to heaven’ after her dream wedding on Sunday.

The reality TV star, who has been given just weeks to live after being diagnosed with cervical cancer, revealed to OK! magazine, who have exclusive rights to Goody’s wedding story and pictures: ‘I’ve had the happiest day of my life. Now I’m ready to go to heaven.’

Following the weekend nuptials, an exhausted Goody returned to her home yesterday, accompanied by her new husband, Jack Tweed and her two assistants.

Goody’s mother, Jackiey Budden revealed: ‘She’s very tired. The wedding day was fantastic, but it has worn her out.’

Celebrity publicist Max Clifford said: ‘She was emotional and exhausted. It is possible she and Jack have just spent their only night together.’

The wedding day saw almost 200 guests in attendance, including TV presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan. The Sugababes took to the stage to perform at the reception at Down Hall Country House Hotel in Essex and while Goody retired to bed at 10.30pm, her new husband and two sons, partied on until the small hours.

Goody has revealed her plans for her sons, Bobby, five and Freddie, four, after she has passed away. The two children will live with their father, Jeff Brazier, but the 27-year-old insisted that her hubby Jack and mum Jackiey would see the boys regularly.

‘He's been so good with Bobby and Freddie and offered to buy me a wedding gift,' said Goody. 'If the day comes when I'm not here, Jeff will have full custody and my mum and Jack will have access as and when they want.'
