Prime Minister Gordon Brown has spoken of the courage and determination that Jade Goody showed in the months leading up to her death from cancer.
The Prime Minister said he was “deeply saddened” by today’s passing of the 27-year-old, adding that her work to raise awareness of cervical cancer since her diagnosis last August would benefit thousands of women in the UK.
TV personality Stephen Fry said on his Twitter mini-blog that Goody was a “kind of Princess D from the wrong side of the tracks”, while fellow Celebrity Big Brother contestant Shilpa Shetty said: “I am deeply saddened by the news but in hindsight glad she is out of pain and passed away peacefully in her sleep.”
Rest In Peace Jade Goody.
