And this weekend, Chloe has revealed that it was the plight of tragic Big Brother star Jade Goody – who died of cervical cancer in 2009 – that prompted her to seek out tests that would indicate the signs of cancers, despite being young and therefore not usually considered in the ‘at risk’ category.

As fans of former Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes will know, she’s been dating Jack Tweed, who of course married another BB star, Jade Goody, just weeks before she died of cervical cancer on Mother’s Day in 2009 aged just 27…
And as we reported a few weeks ago, Chanelle lashed out at Jack on Twitter after he said “Nobody can replace Jade” during a magazine interview.

Bizarre former model Paula Hamilton has sparked outrage behind the scenes of Celebrity Big Brother after telling her fellow housemates that Jade Goody died because of the “negativity” that trailed her after her appearances on the show.
And as if that wasn’t controversial enough, Paula told fellow housemate Lacey Banghard that if she’s first out during Wednesday night’s eviction show, it’ll be because she’s “hated” by the public.
