One of Britain's most hated and loved celebrities has made over a million pounds by selling her dying days to the tabloid press. The 27-year-old cancer sufferer, who's famous for being ignorant, racist and overweight, has been given weeks to live - and she hasn't wasted a minute.

The kind of celebrity Britons revel in, Jade Goody is famous just for being famous. She emerged in 2002 on reality TV show Big Brother and soon became a target of ridicule for her pure stupidity. Since then she's launched her own perfume, published an autobiography, outraged millions by making racist remarks on "Celebrity Big Brother", and amassed a fortune. Now, the news of Goody's terminal cancer has brought her even more attention by allowing a 24-hour film crew to follow the balding sufferer through her last weeks.

She says the money is for her children.
