Jade Goody will have a special drugs pouch in her wedding dress, it was revealed today.
The cancer-stricken bride-to-be will use it to top up her pain relief on the big day this Sunday. Goody, 27, is set to marry boyfriend Jack Tweed, 21, at down Hall Country House Hotel, Hertfordshire, before returning to her essex home for the reception.
Her publicist, Max Clifford, said today that doctors at the Royal Marsden Hospital have provided her with drugs to help her cope. "They have given her everything to try to control the pain," he said. "There'll even be a special pouch in her wedding dress for painkillers, so hopefully that will help her during her big day."
Goody will wear a £3,500 silk gown given to her by Harrods owner Mohammed Fayed. She wept trying it on in hospital, saying it was her "dream dress." Clifford also quashed rumours Goody plans to be filmed as she dies.
"All this talk of filming her dying, it wouldn't happen, and I find it incredibly offensive," he said. The wedding will net over £1m from OK! magazine and Living TV. The cash will go to Goody's sons Bobby, five, and Freddie, four.
Also today, Shilpa Shetty gave a boost to Goody with the news that she is praying "for a miracle" for her former Celebrity Big Brother co-star. The Bollywood actress has long put aside her differences with Goody, who drew accusations of racism in their appearance together two years ago.
"Jade wants the best for her children. I also hope for a miracle for them," said devout Hindu Shetty. "My mum says prayers can make it happen." Shetty, 33, confirmed she phoned Goody and had been invited to the wedding, but cannot make it. Girls Aloud are expected to sing at the ceremony.
