THOUSANDS of well-wishers are expected to line the streets for the funeral of reality television star Jade Goody today.
Goody will be buried after a church service in Buckhurst Hill, Essex.
And the funeral procession will trace the geography of Goody’s life as it makes its way to St John the Baptist Church.
It will travel through Bermondsey, south-east London — where she grew up — make its way to her home in Upshire, Essex, then move to Buckhurst Hill, where her widower Jack Tweed lives.
Publicist Max Clifford, who represented Goody, said the funeral would be “a very Jade Goody event”.
Goody died at home at the age of 27 on March 22 after losing a battle with cervical cancer.
Clifford said he and Tweed, 21, would be among people paying tribute at the service.
“The whole service is very much the way Jade wanted it,” he said.
