‘Big Brother’ to air tribute show for Jade GoodyMay 1st, 2009 - 11:00 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 1 (IANS) “Big Brother” bosses have announced they will air a Jade Goody tribute show.
Femalefirst.co.uk reports, a two-part documentary will celebrate the life of the late reality TV star, who lost her battle with cancer in March aged 27.
Bosses of the Channel 4 show initially said they would not give Goody her own memorial show, but changed their minds following the public outpouring of emotion when she died.
“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. It took a few weeks for her death to truly sink in,” said a channel insider.
“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 tenth anniversary and it would be a real shame not to give Jade her own show, separate from the others. It will be a celebration of her life, rather than a sad look back,” the insider added.
The documentary will feature memorable clips of Goody’s time inside the “Big Brother” house, as well as other footages. It will be aired in June.
