BIG Brother legend Jade Goody has cervical cancer, it was revealed last night.
The reality TV star, 27, received the bombshell news as she was appearing in the Indian version of the Channel 4 show.
Mum-of-two Jade who shot to fame in BB3, was said to be devastated after hearing tests proved positive for the disease.
She was called into the Diary Room and told of the findings by her consultant.
Jade then ran out in hysterics and made a tearful announcement to her housemates that she had cancer.
She was immediately withdrawn from the show and was being flown home for treatment last night.
The star had undergone hospital tests earlier this month after her third cancer scare.
It followed four mystery collapses.
But she decided to go into the Indian programme, called Bigg Boss, to try to make amends for the race storm during last year’s Celebrity Big Brother.
It is being hosted by Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty, 33, who was allegedly racially abused by Jade in the 2007 series.
A close friend said last night: “She was called into the Diary Room and spoke to her agent, then her consultant in the UK.
“She burst into tears and ran out and said to her housemates, ‘I have cancer’.
“Jade was then led out of the house and she is coming back to England to see another consultant.”
Jade’s spokesman said: “She went for tests and results have come back and she has cancer.”
There was mystery last night over whether the footage would be screened.
Jade, from Upshire, Essex, was previously tested for bowel cancer in 2006 and ovarian cancer in 2004, but was given the all-clear both times. Jade Goody has cancer | The Sun |News
