Tributes to Big Brother star Jade Goody on sixth anniversary of her death

Tributes to Big Brother star Jade Goody on sixth anniversary of her death

Yesterday, hundreds of tributes to former Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother star Jade Goody were posted online on what was the sixth anniversary of her death. Controversial Jade died of cervical cancer on March 22nd in 2009 aged just 29.

Her tragic passing left her two young sons Bobby and Freddy to be raised by their father, Jeff Brazier.

Shortly before she passed away, Jade married her fiancé Jack Tweed, and yesterday, he took to Twitter to say, “6 years gone, miss you more each day #jade #RIP.”

Jade’s close friend Amy Brookbanks added this tribute online…

Fans of Jade’s added their tributes on Twitter too, with one writing, “6 years since Jade Goody passed away. Only seems like yesterday. #RIP #JadeGoody”

Another wrote, “#JadeGoody trending six years after her death to cervical cancer, still as important as ever to get regular smears girls.”

And one more commented, “6 years since #JadeGoody died. A v sad & preventable death. Always have your #SmearTest & always be aware of symptoms #RIPJadeGoody”

Jade chose to have her last few months filmed and documented for a fly-on-the-wall series primarily so that she could get the message across that cervical cancer testing is vitally important, and to stress that if a woman suspects there may be something wrong, she should insist on being tested, regardless of her age…

However, it was also so that she could gather together as much money as possible to leave for her young sons, given that she was passionate about their education and wanted them to attend private schools.

Jade first learned that she had been diagnosed with cervical cancer during her time in the Big Brother house in India, where she became a housemate in the wake of the racism scandal that began when she and other housemates were accused of making racist remarks to and about Shilpa Shetty.

Shilpa magnanimously forgave Jade after she made several public apologies, and was among the first to post messages of condolence online when Jade died.

Here’s a reminder of a news report about Jade’s death…

Though Channel 5 bosses were said to be somewhat “disappointed” that Katie Price wasn’t the focus of more drama during her stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house – they were hoping she’d go to war with former love rival Alicia Douvall and with gobby Katie Hopkins – ITVBe chiefs are nonetheless reportedly hoping that adding Price to the cast list of The Only Way Is Essex will boost the show’s flagging viewer ratings.

Celebrity Big Brother’s Dee Kelly is a thespian now? #Ermagherd

Celebrity Big Brother’s Dee Kelly is a thespian now? #Ermagherd

It has been reported today that former Celebrity Big Brother housemate Dee Kelly – who shot to fame after featuring in Channel 4’s controversial documentary series, Benefits Street – is about to turn thespian with a role in a production of Shakespeare’s classic, Hamlet.

We s**t you not.

According to The Sun, Dee will form part of the cast who are set to perform the iconic play at the Library of Birmingham this week, and while it’s not exactly the grandest of settings for The Bard’s works, nonetheless, the mere fact that Dee’s name is mentioned in reference to Shakespeare made us wonder if either hell had frozen over or it was April 1.

However, while it seems neither of those things apply, Dee may well have had Will spinning in his grave as she said, “I haven’t seen any of the original movies, I’ve seen the remakes.”

Oh dear God…

And in a This Just In confession, not, she added, “Hand on heart, I’ve never seen one of his plays, and I can’t say I was a fan of Shakespeare…

“I’m not an expert, but you don’t have to be an expert to appreciate something, and to like it.”

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 - White Dee

And in what we hope was a joke, of Shakespeare, she added, “He’s from outside Birmingham anyway, but even if he wasn’t, I’m a bigger star than him, aren’t I?”

Sadly, she may well in fact be spot on there.

Benefits Street White Dee

Meanwhile, Dee is currently working on – and this is about as shocking and unlikely as hearing that she’s landed a role in Hamlet – her own fitness DVD, despite the fact that she still smokes and is still overweight.

But of those issues, she remarked, “Since Benefits Street I’ve lost over 5stone. I’ve gone down three dress sizes.”

However, she conceded, “It’s a work in progress.”

Erm, ok…

But despite the intimation in all of the above as to my opinion of Dee, I have to applaud her for picking up the (albeit dubiously acquired) fame ball and running hell for leather with it…

After all, she’s now surely looking at a fairly nice bank balance, while as far as we’re aware, the rest of her James Turner Street neighbours are still most likely busy claiming benefits and generally speaking, doing sweet FA, Dee is now earning her own living. And as mentioned, for that, she does deserve plaudits.

New Katie Hopkins outrage over Fred West comments… SSDD much?

New Katie Hopkins outrage over Fred West comments… SSDD much?

Reporting that former Celebrity Big Brother housemates Katie Hopkins has made an offensive remark is rather much akin to reporting that night – to the surprise of no-one – followed day…

However, make a new offensive comment she has, and this time, it was to compare a gay stripper to serial killers Fred West and Anders Breivik.

The Daily Star reports that the drama kicked off as Hopkins was judging an event – entitled ‘Porn Idol’ – at trendy London club, Heaven.

After one hopeful performed his routine, she said, “What’s that mass murderer called?

“Is it Anders Brievik? Well there’s something of him in you. And Fred West.”

Those remarks came hot on the heels of Hopkins sticking her twopenn’orth in about the Jeremy Clarkson hoo-hah, and while writing her column for The Sun, she commented, “Deciding to suspend Jeremy Clarkson is a little bit like hanging the Queen.

“The nation watches in horror, the culprits look like utter gits and Britain loses a national treasure.”

She added, “Get Clarkson back on Top Gear, get the show back on the air and stop playing who’s got the biggest willy.

“People like cars, Jeremy likes cars. Let Jeremy do what he does best and talk to people about cars.”

However, other Twitter users have blasted Hopkins for all of the above – and a good deal more, given her recent tweets about Ebola and other post on the site that could (and were by some) be deemed as inciting racial hatred – with one writing that the former Apprentice hopeful is “a massive boil on the backside of life.”

There are countless other not overly flattering comments about Hopkins on Twitter, but no doubt she either doesn’t read them or it’s like water off a duck’s back to her if she does.

But it is all a tad SSDD isn’t it? Katie says something vile, everyone goes nuts, everyone asks ‘Has she gone too far this time?’

And we’re among the culprits there, obvs, but really, we would have thought she’s pretty much run the gamut of insults and offensive comments by now, so I guess if nothing else, we have to admire her ingenuity in coming up with new crap to spout on a daily basis.
