Jade Goody’’s funeral to be broadcast live on TVMarch 23rd, 2009 - 4:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, March 23 (ANI): Giant screens will be set up outside St John Baptist Church in Buckhurst Hill, Essex, for Jade Goodys funeral to be broadcast live.
The 27-year-old died peacefully in her sleep, while mum Jackiey Budden and hubby Jack Tweed held on to her hands at her Essex home early on March 22 Mothers Day.
According to her friend and spokesman Max Clifford, the funeral of the Brit reality TV star, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer, would be a celebration of her life.
He revealed the ceremony would be the final “Jade Goody Production, full of ups and downs that characterised her wedding and the christening of her sons Bobby, 5, and Freddie, 4.
Jade had planned her final resting place during her extremely painful ordeal after the disease spread to her entire body.
She wanted to be buried at her favourite church, and had insisted that all those who wanted to attend her funeral were welcome.
The memorial service, expected to be held within two weeks, will see the day beginning with a cortege setting off from her childhood home in Bermondsey.
“Jade wanted a celebration of her life. It will be very much a Jade Goody Production with Jade doing her own thing her own way,” the Telegraph quoted Clifford as saying of the service.
“It will be a celebration, but of course there will be a lot of tears,” he added. (ANI)
