The Ministry of Justice is considering relaxing the bail conditions for Jade Goody’s fiance Jack Tweed, ahead of their wedding this weekend.
It has emerged that reality TV star Goody, who has terminal cancer, may have to spend her wedding night alone because of his bail conditions.
Tweed is on curfew after being convicted of assault last year.
Justice Secretary Jack Straw said he had great sympathy for Goody who was facing her illness with courage.

Those of you who are not familiar with Jade Goody may be wondering why I’ve been posting news updates on the reality TV star (Google her). Those of you who are familiar with Jade and have followed her meteoric rise to the top, and her subsequent down fall will know why……..
Since announcing that Jade only has months to live the British media and Jade’s publicist Max Clifford have all gone in to overdrive. Jade’s photograph can be seen on the front of nearly every newspaper most days and there is a sea of public sympathy washing over her.
You also now have This Morning host Eamonn Holmes calling for Tweed’s bail conditions to be relaxed (live on air) for Sunday’s wedding and now politicians are getting involved…..
But 2 years ago it was a completely different story thanks to the Shilpa Shetty episode.
This is a really sad and heartbreaking situation and I feel for Jade’s children. But I have a question to ask….
Would Jack Straw/The Ministry of Defence change the rules if Tweed and Goody were “average everyday citizens” going through the same sad experience???
Something tells me that this would not happen! The situation wouldn’t even be on Jack Straw’s radar!
