BuzzJack Music Forum _ Reality TV _ Jade Goody: The Reality Star Who Changed Britain

Posted by: Klaus Aug 7 2019, 08:07 PM

Three part series on Channel 4 now all about the rise, fall and rise of Jade Goody.

Will certainly be an interesting watch for any Big Brother fan, reality TV fan or reality TV sceptic.

She was amongst the first every day person catapulted into enormous stardom from reality TV. She wasnít particularly known for, letís say her intelligence but was adored by many and then saw the tide turn against her when she want back into the show that made her. Her later life brought huge exposure for cervical cancer screenings for young people.

As an aside, interesting for Channel 4 to recognise Big Brother again

An unforgettable Big Brother housemate, the ultimate.

Posted by: Mack. Aug 7 2019, 08:19 PM

Wow, the headlines from the Mirror and that Graham Norton clip... Blimey.

Posted by: Jordan Lee Aug 7 2019, 10:01 PM

This was so shocking!!

I was too young to really remember BB3 as I was like 7 when it aired so I never watched it at the time it was actually on TV but some of those headlines were SHOCKING

Like imagine if today some journalist was writing about Love Island stars.

Was a really interesting watch though. Iím sad watching it though sad.gif

I never really thought she was a racist and thought the issue was more based on class. Jo and Danielle were also far worse at the bullying yet never got a quarter of the blame Jade did!

Posted by: Aaron. Aug 7 2019, 10:04 PM

This just popped up on my to-watch list and I was coming to post here.
BB3 was my first international RTV show and Jade certainly stood out. I pretty much followed her career from there.
I was devastated when she past. Will give this a watch tonight and will probably bawl.

Posted by: Mack. Aug 7 2019, 10:07 PM

Kevin O'Sullivan didn't even look apologetic looking back on what he wrote. Indeed shocked at the media coverage she had when she was in the house.

Can't wait to watch this tomorrow!

That's a big part of what makes her story really sad for me, obviously Jo and Danielle weren't exactly ladies or viscountesses but Jade came from pretty much the lowest of the underclass and I genuinely don't think she was racist, it was just Shilpa was from a different background not culturally as such but economically and they clashed in that respect. She was lacking in cultural capital to deal with the situations she found herself in, both in BB3, afterwards and in CBB. That's part of what made her such a fascinating, real and relatable character, but it's also part of what makes her a tragic figure with how things went down and how she was treated.

That's not saying that some things she said to and about Shilpa weren't horrible, but she genuinely seemed sorry and was working to make amends and show that she was sorry. Danielle never really seemed to react and Jo just did the whole "I've got Indian people in my extended family I can't be racist". It's a real shame that the last bit of her life was dogged by her being hated so much in a way that was imo disproportionate to what she did compared to the way Jade and Jo were treated, it's tragic to have seen her career go full circle and end up back to being reviled by the media like she was at the start of BB3. I would have liked to have seen where her career might have gone after she had made amends if she hadn't passed before she really had a chance to try and rebuild her career.

I haven't seen this yet; however I remember the headlines during BB3 and the whole 'pig' things too. However I remember by the end of BB3 she had turned it around massively and Graham Norton was championing her. However given everything thats happened these days with LI stars etc, the headlines that Jade got were horrific and would never be allowed now

I also remember her going on Back to Reality on Channel 5 (I can't remember if that pre, or post race row), but she collapsed on there and was rushed to hospital, before returning to the house. But it was probably an early sign of everything else that was going on health-wise.

Jade wasn't perfect and I guess that was her charm. Not always likeable, but very identifiable. Definitely need to watch this though as I must've been late teens when she initially rose to fame... in fact BB3 being over 15 years ago feels very strange

Thatís so many good points there what I agree with. I watched BB3 years after it actually aired and she was TV Gold. I really do see her as marmite like there were times I laughed and cringed at her and times I was just thinking oh god 👀 but she was just real and herself and we see a lot of people now on shows deliberately acting like she did. I think her not winning as well probably helped her to become a big star too as she had like an underdog feel about her.

With CBB Jade definitely made amends more than the other two and showed what I felt was like genuine remorse as well. I watched her BBLB interview and the eviction one and I feel she was just so taken aback and shocked by what she was being perceived as. But she also sort of owned her s*** too like she was pretty out of order but not racist. I feel it was perhaps sort of envy as she may have wished sheíd had a life like Shilpas growing up.

Danielle was the worst Iíd say and was the one who actually made comments what could have been seen as racist too.

Jo and Danielle had already come across in a bad light before Jade even entered as well as Jade entered after the launch didnít she.

But yeah for her go to in the Indian version was a brave move and couldíve been a real turning point for her had she had a full stint in the house if what happened didnít happen sad.gif sad.gif

Just gave this a watch. Really well done. 3 Parts to this is perfect.
I lost it when Davina came on the screen. Absolutely tied to Ultimate Big Brother and the segment they dedicated to Jade.
I loved that they had PJ and Alex as well. Poor Jackie tho.

It's not even that he seemed proud of it. Which is so much worse. He also seemed to imply he should still be able to write things like that.

It’s crazy looking back and seeing how much the landscape has now changed. The tabloids are still as horrendous as ever but I didn’t appreciate there was an lower level that they used to stoop to (not taking into account phone hacking).

The exclusive Big Brother interviews in Heat I remember always being massive as well but of course now everything is just immediate and all over the internet and, in particular, we know everything about what a famous person is doing by insta.

Posted by: Spiceboy Aug 8 2019, 05:31 PM

Iím not a fan of Jade at all tbh, I mean racist or not she was certainly a bully and I have no time for bullies whatsoever. But I do think the press she received at the beginning of her BB career was shocking, really vile. It was around the time that Spice Girls (particularly Victoria) were also being treated in the most vile hideous way. With the focus on mental health now I donít think people suffer the same level of bullying from the media as back then which was horrendous.

Social Media trolling is probably the equivalent to that now. Like the press are a bit nicer now but the stuff the press used to say / do now happens online.
Like in that time there wasnít sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc or YouTube where a lot of reaction videos gear towards hate on people.

Saw this last night. I watched the whole of BB3 at the time so those clips brought back memories. That poor house/rich house task with the metal railings dividing the living room went on for weeks. We sadly didn't get to see a replay of Sandy urinating in the bin before climbing over the wall. I was surprised at the time that Jade was first out on the final night. She'd built up a lot of support by the end and I thought she'd win more votes than at least one of the other three.

Graham Norton's show was on five nights a week at about 11pm and he had Jade on three or four times after she came out.

I'm looking forward to part 2 now,it will be interesting to see which of the housemates from CBB agreed to appear on the documentary to comment on what happened.

Just having a look she picked up 20% of the vote, which given how hated she was for the majority of BB3 was a fantastic showing. That final was close between all 4 of the finalists. I think had the show been 1 week longer, then she probably would've won overall

Posted by: Klaus Aug 14 2019, 09:12 PM

This continues to be such an interesting watch. At the tine, I feel I was too young to appreciate the difference in class and particularly how that servant task was probably one of the most psychological tests of the entire BB series, to the point where itís quite harmful and perhaps trying to make a mockery of Jade and her family?? I do remember not understanding why Jack and Jackiet also entered and Iím still donít understand why now. She might have fared better without them.

The show may have both made and Ďendedí her career but I still believe that series also killed Big Brother as a show. Of course it was only axed (again) last year but it was never seen in the same light again and turned from the big guilty pleasure mainstream watercooler hit (a la Love Island) to Ďoh, you still watching that?í

Itís interesting to see the reactions from her celeb housemates in her being there in the Celebrity house when you consider that the house become overrun with reality TV stars, particularly in the later days.

Posted by: lewistgreen Aug 14 2019, 10:12 PM

That was an interesting watch this week and good to see them giving the entire episode to the CBB stint and its impact. It really was a turning point for Jade - That News of the World interview was hard to watch.

Posted by: JosephAvery Aug 14 2019, 10:48 PM

I never watched the CBB episode at the time so I've learnt about it as the years have gone by. This was the first time I saw some of the footage as well as learning about the context in terms of Jade's life, and it was uncomfortable. The comments were below the belt and unquestionably racist (class seemed to be used as an excuse, I expect if Shilpa were a white woman in that position it wouldn't be such an issue). Having Jackiey and Jack in there felt... wrong, too. I agreed with one of the comments an interviewee made - it was made to be Jade's home, with her family, where she could say what she wanted because she was so important.

It's also so interesting to see just how quickly public opinion can shift (and rightly so). Going from being so well loved to absolutely detested, and the crazy thing was how she had no idea what was going on outside the house.

This is very true, spot on!

Posted by: Spiceboy Aug 14 2019, 11:31 PM

A really interesting watch. I feel they were kind of right about the class divide in the house and the way the task was set kind of highlighted that in some ways. Jade was in a sense BB royalty 'Queen of the house' if you like, and it was so interesting to see the reactions of other housemates to that again (I had somewhat forgotten all these years later). The two singers really did themselves no favours at all both were up themselves and Ken Russell was also an idiot. I do feel having her mum in there did her no favours at all. I mean seriously I'd forgotten about the "Shippa or whatever your name is..." Seriously wtf how many times did they tell her the name was SHILPA it was ridiculous. Jackie stirred up lots of bad feeling, which Jade very much tried to keep a handle on, and then the way Big Brother chucked her out I think it just shifted something in Jade... I think Jade would have fared much better had she gone in by herself tbh I'm not sure the whole bad feeling would have been stirred up in the way it was.

I will say though the 3 girls were racist, there's no getting away from that, some of the language they used, some of the things they said (especially Danielle - "she can't even speak English properly go back to your own country") but I don't think Jade herself was necessarily intentionally racist. She was ignorant and not very clever (despite all last week being about how smart Jade was etc she really wasn't) and she wasn't intelligent enough to know what she was saying and encouraging was racist. She was however a bully, her Jo and Danielle were like a bunch of mean high school girls with Jade being the ringleader and Jo and Danielle propping her up all the way, it was horrid to watch back in the day and uncomfortable viewing again with some of the clips tonight. I do find it ironic however that the UK is the most racist it has ever been right now. Seriously all the bad feeling stirred up about 'foreigners' as part of the Leave campaign, and the blatant racism against the muslim community in the Daily Mail, The Sun, The Daily Mirror it's just horrendous and yet nobody seems to notice that.

I'm not sure how I feel about the whole thing tbh. I do think Jade was a bit of a victim of the show and the media tbh and I do feel a bit sorry for her, but at the same time I find it hard to have real sympathy for her because I feel like we saw a side of her that clearly was her. In actual fact that was her own fault for acting so grossly to another person, I find it hard to really have sympathy for those people.

I'm not sure if those are good ratings, but really liking this series.

Posted by: pippa Aug 19 2019, 07:08 PM

I never felt Jade was racist in the fallout with Shilpa, and while it could look that way i 100% feel it was not intended.
Jade and Shilpa simply did not see eye to eye which was nothing to do with race, they both had 2 very different backgrounds and upbringings.
Jade would have had such a better run in the Celebrity house had she entered alone, as from the moment they entered there was some people in their just looking down their noses at them.
The story of Jade is so tragic, it was an incredible journey for her and it all ended so abruptly and so young.

Exactly! For me it's the way she was genuinely sorry and tried to make amends, for example going into Indian Big Brother. That spoke volumes compared to the lack of apologies or understanding from Danielle and Jo.

It feels to me, not to excuse or explain away racism, that it was a case of background and Jade had soaked up a way of reacting to those from wildly different backgrounds or cultures from her mother and others around her - that was one of ignorant racist comments. Again not excusing it at all, but setting up a divide and playing with the dynamics like that was kind of asking for *something* to happen, it was like a pressure cooker with all the wrong ingredients that was going to blow sooner rather than later. I don't think anyone could have foresaw anything close to what happened coming though :/


Shilpa's "your claim to fame is this - GOOD FOR YOU" is the most iconic clapback ever tho tbh *.*

100% agree with this

Posted by: Mack. Aug 21 2019, 08:13 PM

They really should have let Jade out immediately following the news. Something like that should not have been filmed at all.

Posted by: lewistgreen Aug 21 2019, 08:13 PM

OH MY GOD. I knew she found out whilst in BB in India but I had not remembered that theyíd broadcast the whole thing; really unacceptable tbh.

She really is an inspiration

Posted by: Jordan Lee Aug 22 2019, 12:34 AM

The last episode was a hard watch.

I agree it was dreadful showing the news of her having cancer being filmed on TV. Awful it should be banned from TV and online. Her family and friends likely seeing that whilst she was in another continent as well must have just feit so helpless.

Her illlness really seemed to deteriorate so quickly didnít it from being diagnosed to passing away.

27 year old is just no age at all too.


The second episode though.

Danielle Lloyd was actually the most racist yet hit next to no stick!

Those scenes are horrible to watch even now. But at the time Jade really got the whole brunt.

I take it because she was less known she didnít suffer as she had less to lose than Jo and Jade.

But Jade leaving to a no crowd eviction alone whilst Jo left in a double eviction and Danielle leaving again with someone else (Jack
I believe) and making it to the final was awful.

They all shouldíve come out alone and faced things alone the way that Jade did.

On another note had the cancer not happened and had Jade lived a healthy life do you think sheíd have ever got her career back?


Posted by: Feel_The_Fever Aug 22 2019, 12:59 AM

Her career was getting back on track before she got sick so i think she would have done ok. It's hard to believe jade is gone 10 years and she really was no age when passed.

Posted by: Brett-Butler Aug 22 2019, 06:21 PM

I must say, I really enjoyed the documentary, and it was great how each episode had it's own separate feel and theme. Before watching the documentary, my thoughts about Jade Goody were a mixture of indifference and slight dislike, based on her behaviour against Shilpa Shetty in the Big Brother house, yet after watching this I was left with a whole lot of empathy, mixed with an unexpected amount of respect for her, which I didn't expect. I also didn't realise just how good a singer she was - that Stars in Their Eyes performance really blew me away. Talk about hiding your light under a bushel.

A few other assorted points that struck me watching it:

It was interesting seeing how some of the players in Jade's stories reacted to it many years on. The one person who really seemed to have had a real volte-face was Davina McCall. Given that she's still seen as the "face" of Big Brother, she appeared to regret her role in being involved with the show and reality TV, at one point saying that she felt sorry for those taking part, saying that it would "ruin their life". Whether it was a true a Damascus-eque conversion, or a way to separate herself from her own role in what happened, remains to be seen. On the other hand, a lot of the tabloid people did not regret what they did in the slightest, which was quite troublesome to see.

The one really illuminating moment that I picked up on, which might have gone over other people's heads, was an off-the-cuff remark made by Channel 4 News' Kristian Guru-Murthy about how the channel reacted to the racism scandal. He said that he didn't believe that Channel 4 had done anything wrong as, to paraphrase, Channel 4 is a liberal, tolerant TV channel, and therefore there was no possible way that it could have been racist, or mishandled the way that the racism row unfolded. It was such an interesting point about the blind-spot that some so-called liberals and anti-racists have - we are the good guys, so there is no way that we could possibly be racist, purely by virtue of being the good guys. It definitely explains why Channel 4 go so much wrong in relation to the incident, and it goes a lot towards explaining a whole lot more in society, such as why the Labour Party, which is currently led by a "life-long anti racism campaigner" (his words) currently finds itself as the first UK political party since the BNP to be investigated by the The Equality and Human Rights Commission. It also explains how Bo' Selecta managed to get five series.

My feeling - yes in the short term, but the dawning social media age would have eventually caused her career and profile to subside, either through making ill thought out remarks on Twitter, or from too many other celebrities to compete with.

Posted by: pippa Aug 22 2019, 07:15 PM

Jade may have managed a few more years in the spotlight but likely would have faded due to the arrival of other reality stars.
At that point it is likely she would have had some financial security.
I could have easily seen Jade appear on Im a Celebrity and Strictly Come Dancing as a profile booster too.
So tragic that we will never know, it was extremely sad to watch a mother have to leave her 2 kids behind at such a young age.

Iím trying to think of what shows she couldíve done?

Like would she have stayed in the reality route and done stuff like Celebs Go Dating (if she was single), Celeb coach trip / Come Dine.

Or the skilled reality shows like Dancing On Ice. I guess we will never know but i sort of agree in some ways. Jade on twitter would be crazy sheíd have definitely put her foot in it a few times laugh.gif

Posted by: pippa Aug 22 2019, 09:00 PM

Jade may possible have done:

Im A Celebrity.. Get Me Out of Here.
Strictly Come Dancing.
Come Dine With Me.
Celeb Coach Trip.

And with Big Brother on Channel 5 bringing back former contestants for short stays, tasks etc, Jade would have made appearances in addition to Bit on The Side with Rylan.

Posted by: Liаm Aug 22 2019, 10:28 PM

Yeah I could definitely imagine her ending up on one of the big reality shows, she'd have been *amazing* on I'm A Celeb and that's the sort of show that could have really got her career back on track.

I could also kind of see her on maybe Loose Women or doing bits on This Morning.

Posted by: MedellŪam Aug 22 2019, 10:38 PM

Did Jade ever get her own show? I could see her presenting something and I reckon she'd probably have done something to reinvent herself too.

Only the reality/fly on the wall type ones iirc, but she definitely had the personality for it!

Posted by: Rooney Aug 22 2019, 11:11 PM

The documentary was weird. It kind of projected her as having her career back on track by the time she entered 'Big Boss' - I remember it entirely different. She hired Max Clifford to turn around her public image, but at the time she was still held in such a negative light due to her stint on CBB. Certainly not this golden angel the documentary portrayed her to be. She'd lost a lot of the good faith with the public up until the diagnosis.

Agree though about the whole CBB stint, I remember watching it at the time and Jo/Danielle were far worse. The problem was that Jade was seen as the figurehead and of course she sold the most papers which is why she was lambustered as the leader. It's the 'Shilppa Poppadom' line that everyone remembers and Jade's the one who said that, which is why she gets a bad rap from the situation. What she did was racist, but I always found it was more bullying than intended racism.

Posted by: Feel_The_Fever Aug 23 2019, 12:14 AM

Danielle was way worse than jade and danielle I found used jade many times to vent what she was thinking.press wise it was a dream come true as jade sold tabloids and the press knew that.
