A brash British reality show star whose ups and downs captivated the nation till her dying day in the early hours of Mothers Day.
Her first foray into the spotlight was in 2002, when she lost at strip poker on Britain's version of "Big Brother." She went on to write her autobiography, star in fitness videos, release a perfume and appear on "Celebrity Big Brother," where she was accused of racism and bullying a Bollywood star, Shilpa Shetty.
To make amends, she went to India last summer to star in its version of "Big Brother." It was there _ in a shocking diagnosis captured on television _ that she found out about her cancer.
Bald and pale from chemotherapy, pictures of Jade have since been daily fodder in the British press. She says the publicity and profits made from selling her story will help her sons, 4-year-old Freddie and 5-year-old Bobby Jack, and raise awareness of cervical cancer.
Rest in Peace
