Terminally-ill Jade Goody is losing her sight as her cancer takes hold, it was reported today.

The 27-year-old reality television star can now only see out of one eye as her condition worsens, The Sun reports today.

Goody, who has been told she has only weeks to live, was diagnosed with cervical cancer last August.

She is currently being cared for at the Royal Marsden Hospital, in west London.

One of her friends told the newspaper that the star hoped to return home to Upshire, Essex.

“She wants to go home and be surrounded by family and friends —not in a hospital bed," the friend said.

“Everyone's concentrating on getting the nurses prepared so that she can face the pain at home.”

Meanwhile, Pop superstar Michael Jackson sent his “love” to Jade Goody and asked if he could visit her in hospital, her publicist said today.

The terminally ill reality star was reported to be “exhausted” and under 24-hour security protection after being confronted by a woman with a hammer, Max Clifford said.

But he added that cancer-stricken Goody had been cheered by messages of goodwill from the Thriller singer, who recently announced plans to perform in London.

Clifford said: “Michael Jackson phoned her over the weekend but unfortunately couldn’t get through.

“He wanted to pop in and see her but instead sent her his love and said he was thinking about her.”

Goody spent the majority of yesterday sleeping with husband Jack Tweed at her bedside, he added.

Earlier Goody woke up to find a woman leaning over her brandishing a hammer as Goody lay in bed at London’s Royal Marsden Hospital.

Police arrested the suspect who was later released with no further action planned to be taken.
