article imageJade Goody’s Life Story to be made into a Musical

By Alethea Borgman     Apr 23, 2009 in Entertainment
The remarkable life of Jade Goody is to be turned into a musical.
The extraordinary TV star, who recently lost her battle with cancer, shot to fame in the UK reality TV programme” Big Brother in 2002.
In a BBC report today, Danny Hayward, her former friend and business partner confirmed: “Jade was just an ordinary girl and the person who plays her will reflect that. The most important thing is to give someone a break, just like she got.” He confirmed that dates for the auditions will be announced in three weeks' time.

He added: “Her (Jade’s dream) as a little girl was to be in a musical, so obviously when she passed away it felt fitting to do something like this.”
Max Clifford, Jade’s former publicist, refused to confirm the show would definitely go-ahead: "It's an idea that's got legs, but it's nothing definite. It's not all signed and sealed, but it's something that's likely to happen."
He added that if the production did materialise then he will play a part in it’s promotion and help cast for the lead role.
Clifford told Radio 1 Newsbeat earlier this month he had been in talks with several film companies about making a movie based on Goody because her “incredible life touched so many people.”
Goody's celebrity status gathered greater pace when she launched her own perfume as well as regularly contributing to Hello Magazine as a columnist. She was also known to make the odd blunder. She was accused of bullying the actress Shipla Shetty when she took part in the celebrity version of Big Brother in 2007.
Shipla paid tribute to Jade and said on her blog: "Jade put up a brave fight, lost her battle with cancer but won many a heart with her courage and how she dealt with it. My heart sank on hearing the news, but in hindsight I was glad she wasn't in pain anymore and passed away peacefully in her sleep."
