Jade Goody is losing her sight as her cancer takes hold, it’s been reported.

The 27-year-old reality television star – who has been told she has just weeks to live – can now only see out of one eye as her condition worsens, The Sun reports.

Jade is currently being cared for at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, but one of her friends told the newspaper the star hoped to return home to Upshire, Essex.

“She wants to go home and be surrounded by family and friends – not in a hospital bed,” the friend said. “Everyone’s concentrating on getting the nurses prepared so that she can face the pain at home.”

On Monday, it emerged that pop star Michael Jackson had sent his ‘love’ to Jade and asked if he could visit her in hospital.

Her publicist, Max Clifford, said: “Michael Jackson phoned her over the weekend, but couldn’t get through. He wanted to pop in and see her, but instead sent her his love and said he was thinking about her.”

Former Big Brother contestant Jade – who has two sons, Bobby, five, and Freddy, four – was diagnosed with cervical cancer last August.
