Jade Goody kicked off her peace-making trip to India by booking herself into a five-star hotel.

Her alleged racist bullying of Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty in Celebrity Big Brother provoked angry protests in Indian streets.

The only trouble so far in her trip has been the scrum of Indian journalists desperate to speak to the 25-year-old.

The celebrity has left boyfriend Jack Tweed, 19, and her two sons Freddy, two, and Bobby, three, at home and is staying at Le Meridien in Delhi.

She said: “I’m here on a private visit, for four days. People have been really nice out here.

“It’s private and there are no cameras or anything. I’ve paid for the trip myself. That’s all I want to say.”

Asked if she was recognised on the street, the former dental nurse, who is thought to have set off from the UK yesterday, replied: “Yeah, yeah, but people are being so nice.”

“I like the food here,” she said. “Everyone knows I love an Indian.”

Jade, who sparked fury on the streets of India following her row with Shilpa Shetty, is staying at a £190 (€282.60)-per-night club room at the hotel, which boasts a swimming pool, spa and jacuzzi.

Rooms overlook the presidential estate, India Gate and the Indian parliament.

Jade’s agent Catherine Lister said: “It’s a private visit. We’re not releasing very much information.

“It’s private, funded by Jade herself and not in association with any newspapers or magazines.”
