remembering jade

When Jade Goody passed away ten years ago this week from cervical cancer, the tragedy was hard to believe. She’d been a larger-than-life character, had two young boys and was just 27 years old. After her death, nearly 500,000 extra women turned up for cervical screenings. But, sadly, the so-called “Jade Goody effect” wore off, and now one in three women under 30 in the UK don’t attend their smear test. On page 17, reality star Chloe Goodman reveals how her very first cervical screening at the age of 25 potentially saved her life. And we hear from Jeff Brazier – father of Jade’s sons, Bobby and Freddie – about the lasting impact of the grief on their lives. If you take one thing from Closer this week, please let…

jordan’s baby bombshell: ‘i’ve dreamed of ha ving twins – i can’t wait !’

She fuelled rumours she was pregnant for the sixth time last week when she was snapped in Thailand with a noticeably larger stomach. But while a rep for Jordan – real name Katie Price – shot down the claims as the star holidayed with on/off boyfriend Kris Boyson, insiders reveal her pals wouldn’t be surprised if she was expecting. A source says, “Katie has made no secret that she’s desperate for another baby; she’s on a mission to have one by the end of the year. Friends suspect she may already be pregnant and, if she’s isn’t, it’s only a matter of time. She’s stopped drinking and is off some food, and says she isn’t feeling like her normal self.” WEIGHT GAIN Fans added to the rumours when pictures emerged of the mum-of-five looking…

why posh’ sbillion- dollar for tune can’t buy her ha ppiness

They’re set to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary in July – and last week it was reported that they’d become joint billionaires thanks to the success of “Brand Beckham” – with their business ventures earning them a whopping £700 million, equating to one billion US dollars. SECRET PARTIES But despite their power as a brand, sources say wealth and worldwide fame haven’t brought David and Victoria Beckham complete happiness – as sources say the pair have suffered tension over recent rumours about his growing friendships with other women. Insiders recently claimed that Victoria, 44, had concerns about David’s friendship with supermodel Helena Christensen – the pair were said to have stayed in contact after posing for a selfie together back in December at a swanky star-studded bash in Miami, where the former footballer’s…

cheryl: ‘i won’t let anyone take liam from me’

A question mark may be hanging over the status of Liam Payne’s romance with Naomi Campbell, but Cheryl ensured there was no doubt about her bond with ex Liam when they were pictured sharing a warm embrace during a run-in at the Global Awards earlier this month. It was a rare move for Cheryl, 35 – who shares toddler Bear with Liam, 25 – as she usually shuns the spotlight unless she is promoting her music, TV shows or charity work. The singer’s surprise appearance at the awards ceremony came less than 24 hours before supermodel Naomi’s interview on The Jonathan Ross Show aired, where she remained tight-lipped when asked about 1D star Liam. However, the rumour mill continued when Naomi, 48, and Liam were reportedly “all over each other” as they…

It’s been just over three years since he lost his mum Johannah to leukemia, and Louis Tomlinson was left traumatised by yet more heartache last week, when his 18-year-old sister Félicité died due to a suspected heart attack. The 1D star, 27, was said to be “devastated and distraught” after Félicité, aka “Fizzy” – an Instagram star and aspiring fashion designer – died at home. As Closer went to press, the death was being treated as unexplained. The siblings were extremely close and saw each other regularly. Insiders tell Closer that Louis’ former bandmates Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Harry Styles, plus their mentor Simon Cowell, were among the first to reach out. HEARTBREAKING A source says, “Liam’s offered to cancel his upcoming work commitments to be there for Louis. Liam, Niall and Harry…

kerry: ‘ most of my husbands were pr** ks’

Part of what endears people to Kerry Katona is that she’s not afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve – something fans witnessed when she broke down in tears recently while looking for love on the latest series of Celebs Go Dating. Reflecting now on her past heartaches, the mum of five reveals what she’s learned about her three failed marriages, to former Westlife singer Brian McFadden, taxi driver Mark Croft and ex-rugby player George Kay. “I’m not ashamed of things,” says Kerry. “I’ve fallen in love and I’ve never slept around, ever. I’ve been in longterm relationships since I was 18. I’ve got different children from different husbands, which I’ll never regret. And even though most of my exes were pr ks, I’m eternally grateful to them for the children…
