Production set to start on Jade Goody the musical

Production is set to start on Jade Goody the musical based on the life of reality star. Jade's former business partner Danny Hayward announced details of the project earlier today.

Auditions will start in the next three weeks according to Hayward: "Jade was just an ordinary girl and the person who plays her will reflect that. The most important thing is to give someone a break, just like she got."

Speaking to Radio 1 Newsbeat, Hayward said that the concept was in its "infant stages" but he was working on a script with a team of creative writers. Goody became famous following her appearance on Big Brother in 2002 before launching a range of perfume and penning a number of magazine columns. She died in March from cervical cancer.
