Jade Goody plants a tender kiss on Jack Tweed’s hand as the couple exchanged engagement rings by the riverside of the Thames in London yesterday
Terminally ill Jade Goody is to marry her fiancé Jack Tweed on Sunday, her publicist confirmed today.
The 27-year-old reality TV star, who was told last week she has just months to live, briefly left London’s Royal Marsden Hospital yesterday in a wheelchair to exchange engagement rings with Jack, 21 on the banks of the Thames.
Friend and publicist Max Clifford said today that the couple are preparing for a Sunday ceremony.
And he has also given the biggest hint yet that her real-life tragedy will become a television event to be snapped up by the highest bidder.
He said: “I spoke to Jade last night and it is all on for Sunday.”
The couple have chosen plush Down Hall country house, in Hatfield Heath, Hertfordshire as the venue.
Jade told The Sun: “I am going to die in this hospital, so I don’t want to get married here.
“But wherever we tie the knot, I’m determined to walk down that aisle.”
‘I’m so looking forward to being a bride. And I want to walk toward my groom, just like any other young woman would on what is meant to be the best day of their lives.’
She said she has “lost her balance”, which the doctors were not sure was a sign of her illness or just general weakness.
“But I’m hoping I will have the strength to walk on my big day. It would be so cruel to be robbed of that one last thing as well,” she added.
Jade visited Harrods yesterday looking frail in a wheelchair and picked out her wedding dress, a gift from the store’s owner Mohamed Al Fayed. source
