Jade Goody was buried this month – thousands turned out for her funeral on April 4th 2009 – but the former reality TV star’s publicity machine rumbles on: her former business partner and friend, Danny Hayward, has confirmed that a musical about Goody’s 27 year life is to be created.
Jade’s publicist, Max Clifford, however, was more muted when asked about the project, stating:
“It’s an idea that’s got legs, but nothing definite. Its not all signed and sealed, but it’s something that’s likely to happen”
Clifford also confirmed that talks to make a film of the star’s life were ongoing and looked promising.
This news will surely test the countenance of those such as Michael Parkinson for a public which seems to applaud a role model whom the BBC’s stalwart described as “all that is paltry and wretched about Britain.”
