Big Brother bosses to dedicate show to Jade GoodyMay 1st, 2009 - 3:11 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 1 (ANI): After their initial decision to not do a memorial show on late Brit celebrity Jade Goody, Big Brother bosses have now decided to hold an emotional tribute to her this summer.
Goody had passed away in March following a battle with cervical cancer, and after the amazing public outpouring of emotion over her death, bosses at Channel 4 have decided to make a one-off show focusing on her.
A senior source has leaked details of the show, which will be a “celebration of her life rather than a sad look backwards”.
“We weren’t going to do a dedicated show on Jade because she had only just died and everyone was a little overwhelmed by it all,” the Daily Star quoted the source as saying.
“It took a few weeks for her death to truly sink in. But it was clear from the support Jade and her family got from the public that there is great affection for her.
“We are planning a series of shows to mark our 10th anniversary and it would be a real shame not to give Jade her own show - separate from the others,” the source added.
The documentary, which will be screened on C4’s sister channel E4, will chart her rise to fame from the moment she stepped inside the BB house in 2002.
Producers will use an array of clips showing her funniest moments, including her stripping during a drinking game and her undercover clinch with PJ Ellis, 28.
They will also document her shock return to the house in 2007 when she famously clashed with Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty, 32, sparking a huge race row.
Max Clifford, Jade’s publicist and close friend, said on April 30 that he was thrilled about the change of heart.
“There is certainly a lot to celebrate,” he added. (ANI)
