Terminally ill reality TV star Jade Goody has returned to her home in Upshire, Essex after leaving the Royal Marsden Hospital in west London.

The 27-year-old Big Brother star was carried into an ambulance with her husband, Jack Tweed, by her side.

Her publicist Max Clifford said she was "thrilled" to be at home with her two sons, Bobby, five, and Freddy, four.

"It's where she wants to be," he said. "She wants to spend all the time she has got left with Jack and the boys."

Goody, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer last year, has been told she has just weeks to live after the disease spread to her liver, groin and bowel.

"She is just hoping that they can keep on top of the pain so she can get as good a quality of life as possible for however long she has got left," said Mr Clifford.

Goody left hospital on Wednesday morning on a stretcher wearing multi-coloured pyjamas covered by a red blanket.

Her mother, Jackiey Budden, was at her house when her daughter arrived home.


Goody was christened in a 20-minute service at the Royal Marsden on Saturday following her marriage to Tweed last month.

Her sons were also christened during what Mr Clifford called a "very short and emotional service".

Security around Goody's bedside was stepped up after she was confronted in hospital on Sunday by a woman in possession of a hammer.

A 41-year-old woman was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon but was later released.

A documentary showing Goody's wedding to husband Jack Tweed will air on the digital channel Living at 2100 GMT on Thursday.

The lavish ceremony was held at the Down Hall country house hotel in Essex.
