Jade Cerisa Lorraine Goody (5 June 1981 – 22 March 2009) was an English reality-television personality. She entered the public spotlight in the third series of the then-Channel 4 programme Big Brother in 2002, an appearance which led to her own TV programmes and the introduction of her products after her eviction from the show.

In August 2008 she appeared on the Indian version of Big Brother, Bigg Boss, but left the show early and returned to the UK after she learned she had cervical cancer. By February 2009, the cancer had metastasized, and Goody was terminally ill.

Goody married fellow Celebrity Big Brother contestant Jack Tweed on 22 February 2009, and died one month later, in the early hours of 22 March 2009, at the age of 27. Thousands of mourners followed the funeral service on large screens outside the church. It was broadcast live on Sky News, which followed the service from outside since Goody had wanted a private ceremony for friends and family.

Sky Living broadcast five tribute shows to Goody from 2009 to 2012, documenting her life from early childhood through her rise to fame and her final months. The last episode of Big Brother on Channel 4 featured a 15-minute tribute to Goody, praising her as the ultimate Big Brother contestant. She appeared on the front cover of the final edition of News of the World in July 2011.
