Don’t miss Jade Goody’s latest tragic Living documentary tonight

by Lynn Connolly


Don’t miss the tragic but heroically brave Jade Goody’s latest documentary, Jade’s Progress, which is on tonight on Living at 9pm.

Jade had previously commented that… “There are a number of things in my life that have tried to pull me down and I’ve bounced back up through.”

“This I’ve got no control of but I will take it with both hands and take control of it and smash it down and walk all over it. So yes, I will survive cancer. I have to.”

Now, sadly, it seems that indomitable fighting spirit was not enough to halt the ravages of this disease and Jade is now facing up to her own death.

When Living began filming with Jade Goody in the summer of 2008 for the fly-on-the-wall documentary ‘Living With Jade Goody’, what started as a light-hearted insight into the life of the ex-Big Brother contestant has taken a devastatingly sinister turn as it now documents her final months as cancer has overwhelmed her…

Since the first episodes, Jade and Jade:The Next Chapter, viewers have seen how her life has changed beyond recognition as she was first diagnosed with cervical cancer and then as she came to terms with her disease.

Cameras subsequently followed Jade as she underwent a hysterectomy, embarked on cancer treatment – and dealt with its traumatic consequences – whilst continuing to care for her boys and as she bravely carried on working.

Earlier this month though, Jade was rushed to The Royal Marsden Hospital after collapsing at her home and it was there that she received the heartbreaking news that her cancer had spread.

‘Jade’s Progress’ tonight documents her reaction to her devastating prognosis, as well as recapping the events in her life from where ‘The Next Chapter’ left off, including having Jack back with her after his prison release.

The cameras will continue to follow Jade as she undergoes further experimental treatment whilst trying to remain strong for her two boys, Bobby and Freddie, and arranging her wedding to Jack.
