Jade Goody appears to be the latest star to return to rehab, after heading back to The Priory apparently still unable to cope with the fallout from the Celebrity Big Brother race row.

The 25-year-old, who is alleged to have bullied Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty on the reality TV show, went for another session at the London clinic yesterday as friends said it may take her months to recover, according to reports in the Daily Star.

Jade, who is depressed over the row caused by her allegedly racist comments to Shilpa on Celebrity Big Brother last month, arrived at The Priory with boyfriend Jack Tweed.

A source told the paper: “She spends every day thinking about what happened with Shilpa and is not over it at all.

“Being called a racist is not something you forget and she can’t cope with everything that has been said.

“But she is showing some signs of getting back to her normal self and has been putting on a brave face for her kids when she goes out playing with them.

“The children mean everything to her and them and Jack have helped a lot.

“But the therapy sessions at The Priory are where she can open up and be honest about how she feels and what is still making her depressed and emotional.

“She is attending two meetings every week and she is going to keep doing that for as long as she needs to.

“It could take weeks or months, and even then she may only ever get over it if she can meet Shilpa again.”
