Following the 50-50 chance of survival that her doctors have given her, the cancer-afflicted “Big Boss” star, Jade Goody, has begun planning her own funeral.

"Most people plan their weddings. But I'm planning my funeral," the Sun quoted her, as telling OK! magazine .

"Some people say they don't want people crying, but I want people to cry over me! And I don't want anyone to have a booze up when I'm dead! They should have a cup of tea and be crying," she added.

The reality TV star, who has been diagnosed with cervical cancer, has chopped her hair to a short crop in preparation for chemotherapy.

"I'm going to look like a boiled egg," she said.

"The haircut makes me feel less of a woman. But I don't want to wake up one morning and find clumps of hair all over my bed," she added.

Goody is determined to beat cancer, but she admits that, should her treatment not be successful, her funeral should be a sombre affair as opposed to a boozy wake.

"If there's one thing I would look forward to about dying it's that I'd want to be looking down on my family and continue to be part of their lives," she said.

"Maybe at my funeral someone could send me a wreath in the shape of a Marmite bottle with the words underneath, you either loved her or hated her," she added.
