Cancer-stricken Jade Goody is on the “edge of a precipice”, her publicist said today after an emergency incident.

A nurse called husband Jack Tweed to her home last night after the former Big Brother contestant was panicking and in pain.

Mr Clifford said: “She was in a bad way last night, she was panicking. The nurse was obviously concerned and decided she should call Jack.

“He went over and calmed her down and she went to sleep. She settled down and had a comfortable night.”

Asked if this meant Goody was close to the end, Mr Clifford said: “She has deteriorated, she is very weak. The answer is, who knows? We are on the edge of a precipice.”

He said Tweed was allowed to break his curfew in cases of emergency. Tweed, 21, has to wear a tag after his release from prison for hitting a teenager with a golf club.

Under bail conditions he must be at his mother Mary’s house between 7pm and 7am every day.

Officials lifted the curfew for his wedding night and after Goody underwent an operation on her bowel last week.

Mr Clifford said Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty was flying in early next week to see Goody.

“She desperately wants to see her if she’s well enough,” he said.

“They have been speaking on the phone, Shilpa has been keeping in touch with her for months and they are good friends.

“It’s just a question of whether Jade is well enough.”

He said Goody was spending the day with her husband and family at her home in Essex, adding: “So much depends on how she is. She’s asleep a lot of the time. She’s taking every day as it comes. She’s at home now and she’s in good spirits.

“From a spiritual point of view she’s as good as she can be.

“She wanted to be at home and most of the time the pain is under control, although there was a time last night when it wasn’t.”

Mr Clifford said Goody was “delighted” after the Government said it would review the age limit for cervical cancer testing.

Goody, 27, told him: “It’s too late for me, Max, but it will save a lot of others.”

Goody was propelled to stardom in 2002 as a contestant on Big Brother 3. She was plunged into a race row in 2007 after appearing on the celebrity version of the show, when thousands of people complained about the treatment of Indian contestant Shilpa Shetty.

The row attracted the most complaints in regulator Ofcom’s history. But the pair went on to become firm friends.
