'Big Brother' producers are considering casting one of Jade Goody's closest friends - Jaiden Micheal - in order to 'bring back the Jade spirit' to the house
One of Jade Goody's closest friends may star in 'Big Brother' to "bring back the Jade spirit" to the house.
Jaiden Micheal, 25, has reportedly been fast tracked to the last 200 hopefuls to appear on this year's tenth series of the fly on the wall reality show.
Friends claim Jaiden is a "male version" of Jade, with one telling Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "It will be like Jade is back in the Big Brother house all over again.
"If he goes on the show he has vowed to make sure she is not forgotten - and is determined to bring back the Jade spirit that we all knew and loved."
The Liverpool born blogger has auditioned for 'Big Brother' three times and admits he is desperate to star in the show. He has already appeared in reality TV shows including Living TV's 'Diet and Dancing'. Jaiden reportedly met Jade - who died of cancer on March 22 - on the celebrity circuit.
An insider at the show's auditions said: "Because he has applied before he didn't have to go through all the normal processes and, with the spotlight on Jade, producers think it might just be his time to go into the house."
Meanwhile Jade's grief stricken widower, Jack Tweed, has made a 'memory box' of his wife as he prepares to face prison for attacking a taxi driver.
Jack, 21, has reportedly gathered his favourite jewellery, letters and pictures to take with him if he is taken into custody after he is sentenced on April 16 - which he has been warned is likely.
Jack has previously been found guilty of assaulting driver Stephen Wilkins in May last year on his way home from an Essex nightclub. His sentencing was originally adjourned so he could attend his wife's funeral on Saturday (04.04.09).
Jack is already under curfew after he was granted early released on a separate assault charge for attacking a 16 year-old boy with a golf club.
