Jade Goody the waxwork?

Jade Goody is set to have one of her dying wishes fulfilled by becoming immortalised in waxwork at London's Madame Tussauds

Jade Goody is set to be immortalised as a waxwork at London's Madame Tussauds.

The 'Big Brother' star - who died last month after battling cancer - may have one of her dying wishes fulfilled with her own statue at the world famous collection of wax statues.

Jade's widower, Jack Tweed, met with Madame Tussauds staff- which already has a 'Big Brother Experience' feature - to discuss the model yesterday (07.04.09).

A source said: "Jack took great interest in the 'Big Brother' feature and he and his mates took turns to sit in the diary room chair. They had a laugh but for Jack it was something he was doing for Jade. He would love to see her wish come true."

Before she died, Jade expressed her desire to be immortalised as a tribute to her sons, Bobby, five, and four-year-old Freddy.

She said: "I'd love to have a statue made of me. I would like to be in Madame Tassauds."

Her publicist Max Clifford said of the waxwork: "It would be a lovely tribute to Jade."

A spokeswoman for Madame Tussauds said: "We have no final plans at the moment to feature Jade but we are certainly not discounting the idea. It is quite possible that she will appear at Madame Tussauds at some point, as the waxworks are made on the back of research into what the public want."

Other celebrities who can be seen at Madame Tussauds include David Beckham, Kylie, The Queen, Prince Charles and Jonathan Ross.

I think it a disgrace of Madame Tussauds adds a wax figure of Jade. I hear that she wished a statue as a tribute for her sons..that is like stuffing the family dog to give to a kid.

Publicity in life, publicity in death..where will it end?

I know if the wax work goes ahead I shall never visit the place again.

I really hope Madame Tussauds go forward with the idea of a Jade figure.
She is a celebrity that has been recently in the news who everyone would know.
Her cancer plight is one that has touched thousands and maybe as suggested if it does go ahead there could be a way for donations to a cancer charity to be accepted.
Personally I really will miss her. She was a real person in the celebrity eye.
If there was a waxwork of her it would definitely be something I would like to come and see.
