Jade was called to the Diary Room, where she spoke to her consultant in the UK by telephone. She ran out in hysterics and told her housemates "I have cancer". It was not aired at the time and will not be broadcast in India.
She was immediately withdrawn from the Big Brother style show and is on her way home for treatment.
Max Clifford today said:
"Jade had some tests recently, then she went off to India to appear in the Indian Big Brother.
"Yesterday we got a call from her consultant to say she had cancer of the cervix and so she has to come back straight away."
Our thoughts are with Jade and her family.
