Masses mourn Jade Goody

In scenes reminiscent of Princess Diana’s funeral, thousands of people lined the streets yesterday to pay their respects to Jade Goody.

Making her final journey, Goody’s vintage Rolls-Royce hearse was adorned with flowers as the funeral procession made its way from Bermondsey – Goody’s hometown to Buckhurst Hill, Essex.

The emotional memorial service was relayed on giant screens for crowds of mourners who could not fit inside the church.

Her husband Jack Tweed, 21, read out a poem for the star in the Church (video above).

The Dental Nurse first captured the public’s heart on reality show Big Brother, carving out a lucrative career through magazine and book deals.

But Goody soon fell out of favour after appearing on the celebrity version of the programme that originally put her in the public arena, when she was involved in a racism row with Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty.

In August last year it was revealed Jade had been struck with cervical cancer, to which she lost her battle on March 22 – Mother’s day.
