Jade Goody has defied all the odds to become one of Britain's best-paid and most popular celebrities. Born into a troubled south London family she was savagely attacked by the tabloids and called 'the most hated woman in Britain' when she first appeared in the Big Brother house in 2002. Critics said she would be forgotten within days of leaving the show - but Jade has proved them all wrong. Less than two years after finding fame Jade was named as Britain's first reality television millionaire. Today she is working - and earning - as much as ever. Her battles with her weight, her boyfriends and her family have made her the queen of the tabloids and Jade is still the best-selling cover star celebrity magazines like Heat have ever had - far ahead of rivals such as Victoria Beckham and Madonna. In this, the first major autobiography of the star, top showbiz reporter Neil Simpson reveals the tragic childhood that could have left Jade scarred for life. He uncovers the truth behind her turbulent break-up with long-term boyfriend and father of her two children Jeff Brazier and explains the secret of how Jade single-handedly runs one of the most successful careers in show business. Jade's World is essential reading for all of Jade's fans, for everyone who loves reality television and for anyone who wants to become a star in celebrity-obsessed Britain.
