Jade Goody was a British TV personality who rose to fame in 2002 when she appeared on the third series of the Channel 4 reality show "Big Brother". She also gained fame for her ignorance of general knowledge, with British tabloids vilifying and mocking her. Later, she made headlines again for her role in "Celebrity Big Brother", and for the racial abuse that she and other housemates leveled on fellow contestant Shilpa Shetty. She appeared on the Indian version of Big Brother called Big Boss but left the show early and returned to the UK after finding out that she had cervical cancer. She then went on to star in her own television programs after her eviction from the show, which in turn led to her launching a variety of products under her own name. She once worked as a dental nurse before pursuing a career in entertainment. She died of cancer while sleeping at her home in Essex, England. By February 2009, cancer had metastasized and she was terminally ill. She married fellow Celebrity Big Brother contestant Jack Tweed on 22 February 2009 and died one month later, in the early hours of 22 March 2009, at age 27. 

Jade Goody Known For

  • For her appearance on the third series of the Channel 4 reality show Big Brother. 

How did Jade Goody from Big Brother died?

Goody died in her sleep at her home in Upshire, Essex in the early hours of 22 March 2009. She dies at the age of 27. Her death cause was cervical cancer. Her reported time of death varies by source. Her mother, husband, and family friend Kevin Adams were at her bedside when she died. Her funeral service took place at noon on 4 April at St John's Anglican Church in Buckhurst Hill, Essex, and she was buried in her wedding dress later that day near her home in Epping Forest. The funeral cortège included a Bentley. Her sons did not attend the funeral. Thousands of mourners followed the funeral service on large screens outside the church. It was broadcast live on Sky News, which followed the service from outside since Goody had wanted a private ceremony for friends and family. 

Goody had a number of health scares during the 2000s. In 2002 (shortly before her Big Brother 3 appearance) a cervical smear test revealed abnormal cells, a possible indicator of cancer. She was tested for iridocyclitis in 2004 and bowel cancer in 2006, with negative results for each. Just 15 when she contracted the HPV virus, Jade Goody had multiple surgeries to remove the dead cells from her body, but they kept recurring, even after the birth of her second son in 2004. Despite repeated cancer screenings in 2004 and 2006, her doctors could not diagnose her with a disease, even after she miscarried Jack Tweed's baby at just 12 weeks, in June 2007. Later tests would reveal she was suffering from cancer at that time. Her cancer diagnosis came in August 2008, but it was too late by then. She had already had cancer for almost two years by then. Surgeries conducted showed that cancer had progressed rapidly, reducing her chances of survival. On 1 September 2008, it was reported that Goody's cancer was "advanced and life-threatening" and she would have surgery followed by chemotherapy. Doctors gave her a 65 percent chance of survival. Further tests and a radical hysterectomy "went well", according to her publicist, and Goody began chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In an interview with Irish broadcaster RTÉ, Goody said she had begun planning her funeral, was losing her hair, and had decided not to explain her illness to her children, aged 4 and 5 at the time. On 4 February 2009, Goody's publicist, Max Clifford, confirmed that her cancer had spread to her liver, bowel, and groin. A previous 40 percent chance of survival was withdrawn, and she began treatment to prolong her life. On 7 February, Clifford reported that Goody had emergency surgery in London to remove a tumor on her bowel. On 14 February, Clifford confirmed media reports that doctors at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London had classified her cancer as terminal; she could die within weeks, and at best was unlikely to survive more than a few months: "She was informed yesterday that tragically, she's terminally ill. She was obviously devastated." After a painful battle with cancer, Jade Goody died on 22 March 2009. Her death did result in increased awareness about cervical cancer, and inquiries into it from a large number of women.
