Jade Goody has reportedly checked into the Priory to help deal with the stress in the aftermath of her recent Celebrity Big Brother appearance.

A source told the Sun: “Jade has struggled since leaving the house a week ago and learning that she has become the most hated figure in Britain.”

“She’s a real mess. She’s been up and down - one minute she seemed to rally, the next minute she was falling apart. But watching the Housemates replay her rant at Shilpa sent her over the edge.”

“She collapsed with stress and her GP said, ‘I have to refer you to the Priory’. She was driven there immediately. She’s clearly suffering on the verge of a nervous breakdown. She’s very depressed.”

Jade, who rose to fame in 2003’s Big Brother, has become a tabloid hate figure after she, alongside Jo O’Meara and Danielle Lloyd, were seen bullying housemate Shilpa Shetty.
