Jade Goody to marry on Sunday - with a little help from showbiz friends
Cancer-stricken Jade Goody is reportedly set to marry on Sunday – with a little help from her showbiz pals.
Jade briefly left the Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea yesterday to exchange engagement rings with fiancé Jack Tweed, 21.
The Big Brother star was last week told her cervical cancer is now terminal, and has vowed to walk down the aisle with Tweed.
She told The Sun: ‘I am going to die in this hospital, so I don’t want to get married here.
‘But wherever we tie the knot, I’m determined to walk down that aisle.’
Showbiz friends have reportedly been rallying to ensure Jade gets her dream fairytale wedding.
Sir Elton John has offered one of his country mansions as the location for the ceremony, while Jade visited Harrods yesterday where she picked out an Armani wedding dress – a gift from the store’s owner, Mohamed Al Fayed.
Messages of support have also been sent by stars such as Jonathan Ross, Simon Cowell, and Dale Winton.
Speaking on Sky News yesterday, Goody’s friend and publicist Max Clifford said: ‘This has given her something to think about, a happy event.
‘The wedding, the christening of her two boys, these are all positive things to focus on as opposed to the cancer and what is happening to her and what she is going through.’
Clifford said the star also picked out Armani suits for her two sons, Bobby, five, and Freddie, four.
Asked about her remaining in the spotlight during her illness, Clifford said: ‘Jade has said it is the best thing for her and she is doing things the way she wants to do them.
‘She will continue to give interviews providing she is medically able to.
‘If she wants it stopped, it stops.’
