Big Brother star Jade Goody is suffering from cervical cancer, it has been revealed.
The news was broken to the 27-year-old mother of two while she was appearing in the Indian version of Big Brother.
After the devastating news was broken to her in the diary room of the show, Goody was in hysterics as she told housemates "I have cancer".
"She just burst into tears, ran out and said to housemates 'I have cancer',"the friend added.
She was immediately withdrawn from the programme and is flying back home for treatment.
"Jade was then led out of the house and she is coming back to England to see another consultant. She is completely devastated," the friend said.
Goody had undergone hospital tests earlier this month after her third cancer scare. It followed four mystery collapses.
Her spokesman said: "She went for tests and results have come back and she has cancer of the womb.
"She was phoned up and informed. This is a massive blow for her," he added.
Goody decided to go into the Indian show, called Bigg Boss, in a bid to clear her name after being accused of racism on last year's Celebrity Big Brother.
