Jade Goody is planning a ‘fairytale’ wedding to her fiance Jack Tweed – with a little help from her showbiz friends.
The 27-year-old, who’s been told her cancer has become terminal, briefly left London’s Royal Marsden Hospital in a wheelchair to exchange engagement rings with Tweed, 21.
The couple then visited Harrods where Jade picked a ‘beautiful’ wedding dress, a gift from the store’s owner Mohamed Al Fayed.
Sir Elton John has offered one of his homes as the location for the ceremony and messages of help and support have been sent by Jonathan Ross, X Factor guru Simon Cowell and Dale Winton.
Speaking on Sky News on Monday, Jade’s publicist Max Clifford said: “This has given her something to think about, a happy event. The wedding, the christening of her two boys, these are all positive things to focus on as opposed to the cancer and what is happening to her and what she’s going through.”
He said: “After they exchanged rings they went to Harrods where she picked out the most beautiful, in her words, wedding dress. Mohamed said it was his gift for her wedding day.”
Mr Clifford said Jade also picked Armani suits for her sons, Bobby, five, and Freddie, four.
Mr Clifford said Jade told him: “Max, I know I’m ignorant, but I want my boys to have the best possible education money can buy and I am going to make sure that I do that for them so that when they grow up they know that mum did that.”
He said Jade wanted the boys christened because she hopes, ‘they will get to know Jesus and through Jesus they’ll be able to talk to her in years to come’.
The 27-year-old, who rose to fame through Channel 4’s Big Brother in 2002, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in August. On Friday she was told by doctors that the disease had spread to her bowel, liver and groin.
