Jade Goody is having to mediate a feud between her mother and boyfriend from her hospital bed, it has been claimed.

The 27-year-old reality star – who underwent five hours of life-saving surgery to remove a golf-ball sized tumour from her bowel in her battle against cancer on Friday – is now also fighting to keep the pair talking, the Daily Mirror reports.

The argument began when Jade’s mother Jackiey Budden, 50, discovered no-one had been at her daughter’s bedside when she came round from the operation, and blamed Jade’s boyfriend, 21-year-old Jack Tweed.

A source said: “The last thing she wants is to have two of the people she cares most about in the world at each other’s throats.

“Even though she has been through a really tough operation and is very weak she has been trying to persuade them both to make the peace for her sake.

“She was up late into Saturday night trying to get the pair of them to bury the hatchet.”

There was further upset for Jade when Jack sparked rumours of a break-up by changing his status on social networking site Facebook to ‘single’ on Sunday.

But it was changed back hours later and sources say it was changed by mistake.

Despite being told last week her cancer has spread, Jade has vowed to keep fighting for her sons, Bobby, five, and Freddie, four.
