Jade Goody’s family are preparing themselves for the end after the cancer-stricken star deteriorated over the weekend.

The former Big Brother star has ‘put her house in order’ and ‘now we’re waiting for the inevitable’, her spokesman Max Clifford said, adding: “It could be at any time, we just don’t know.”

Jade was visited on Sunday by her sons Bobby, five, and Freddy, four, and although she is under sedation, Mr Clifford said she was ‘briefly conscious’ and managed to smile when she saw her children.

Her mother Jackiey Budden and husband Jack Tweed were also at her bedside.

Jade has told her sons, who are staying with their father Jeff Brazier, that she will soon be in heaven.

She spoke to them after coming home from hospital on Thursday, saying: “I’m going to be a star up in the sky so when you are looking up you will be able to see me and know I’m there, always looking over you.

“Mummy’s going to be up there looking over you. Close your eyes and you can talk to me.”

She has also made arrangements for her own funeral, which she hopes to be a ‘celebration’ of her life.

The funeral is expected to see a cortege of cars drive through the streets of Bermondsey, south London, where Jade grew up.

She will be buried in the churchyard of St John the Baptist in Buckhurst Hill, Essex.

Jade has also reportedly chosen her funeral music and hymns, including All Things Bright And Beautiful.
