Jade Goody decides where she'll be buried as OK! feels the heat over tribute issue

Jade Goody has picked out the place she'll be buried. The reality TV star, who was recently christened while in hospital, has decided to be buried in a traditional service at the St John the Baptist church in Essex, with the ceremony conducted by minister Corinne Brixton who christened not only Jade, but her two sons, too.

'She wants everybody to be there, with plenty of room outside for screens,' Jade's publicist Max Clifford said.

'She wants it to be a big celebration because it's her final farewell to everybody.

'It will be a very Jade Goody event, exactly the way she wants it.'

Reverend Brixton explained why the reality TV star had chosen St John the Baptist, telling the Daily Star: 'Jade really loves this church.'

Meanwhile, OK! magazine has found itself in hot water for publishing a tribute issue to Jade this week, before she'd even died.

The magazine, which went on sale on Tuesday, featured the strap line 'in loving memory' and carried the words 'Jade Goody Tribute Issue 1981 – 2009'.

More than 60 complaints have been lodged with the Press Complaints Commission, who are now deciding whether to conduct a formal enquiry.

'Quite a few of the complaints refer to the impact of the magazine's [coverage] on Jade's family,' a spokesperson said.

'We need to discuss the matter with Jade's family to see if they want us to take the complaints forward to investigate.'
