Summary

Ten years on from her death, this series explores the rollercoaster life of Jade Goody, one of the most loved - and hated - reality TV stars, to tell a bigger story of class, politics and cultural change in Britain, at a time when reality TV became the biggest and most polarising form of entertainment in the country. The second edition focuses on the decisions Jade Goody made which proved disastrous for her life in the spotlight, including a stint on Celebrity Big Brother which left her reputation and business in ruins after a series of abusive rows with Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty triggered a huge wave of complaints about racist bullying.
