Jade Goody signs £750,000 deal for coverage of her “dream wedding”
Jade Goody is reportedly determined to have the wedding of her dreams this weekend, no matter what it takes.
The reality TV star started planning her nuptials after boyfriend Jack Tweed proposed last Friday. The engagement came just hours after doctors told Jade that there was nothing more that they could do for her and she only has around two months to live.
One of Jade’s best friends Kate Jackson told the Mirror: “Five of Jade’s closest mates were called in a couple of days ago and Jade said, ‘I’m getting married and I want you to be the bridesmaids’.
“Then she started flinging out random orders about what we had to do for the preparations - although now everything keeps changing.
“There are so many things to organise and so much of what Jade wants isn’t practical when there is only a week - but if anyone can pull off this wedding, Jade can.
“She wants it to be the most incredible day of her life and we will do whatever we can to make sure it is.”
Jade and Jack will marry at Down Hall country manor, Hertfordshire on Sunday and Jade is said to have secured a magazine deal worth between £750,000-£1million for exclusive coverage of the wedding - the proceeds of which will be put into a trust for her sons five year old Bobby and four year old Freddie.
Jade’s £3500 designer dress - a gift from by Harrods owner Mohamed Fayed - was delivered to her hospital room yesterday and Jade is said to have cried while trying it on, saying: “This is my dream, and this is my dream dress.”
Jade’s spokesperson Max Clifford added that the ceremony would also be filmed for Living TV, who has been following Jade’s progress for the last few months.
He explained: “They [Living TV] have an ongoing relationship with Jade but then of course because of what’s happened to her, that has become much more sensitive and complicated.
“What I suggested is they film the wedding, and then that’s it. There won’t be more episodes of the series they have been filming.
“There will be no filming of Jade dying. It has not even been thought about, nor will it be.”
