Jade Goody, who hit the headlines in the UK after her appearances on the British Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother, lost her battle against cervical cancer on Sunday.
The 27-year-old wife and mother of two died in her sleep in the wee hours on Sunday, her publicist Max Clifford announced.
While Goody was known for making racially charged comments against Shilpa Shetty in the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2007, recently she grew in public esteem, having used her terminal illness to raise awareness about cervical cancer.
Now former Bigg Boss housemates come forward to share their experiences of living with Jade Goody.
