Jack Tweed to leave wife Jade Goody's wake early

Friday April 3, 2009

Jade Goody's husband Jack Tweed will have to leave the reality star's wake early on Saturday to comply with his court-ordered 7pm curfew.
 
The 21-year-old will attend the 12 o'clock funeral service at St John the Baptist Church in Buckhurst Hill – where stars including the Sugababes and Kerry Katona are expected to pay their respects – but will have to leave the wake afterwards in order to make in back to his mum Mary's home in time, the Sun reports.
 
"He's very upset that he will miss the send-off," a friend of Jack's told the newspaper. "But he will be home in time. Jade wouldn’t have wanted him to get into trouble."
 
Thousands of people are expected to line the route as Jade's casket is taken from her childhood Bermondsey home to the church before she is laid to rest in Epping Forest. And TV screens have been set up outside the church so the public are able to watch the service.
 
Tributes continue to flood in for the mum of two – whose sons Bobby, five, and four-year-old Freddie have been taken to Australia by their dad Jeff Brazier. David and Victoria Beckham have sent a bunch of white roses for the funeral with a message reading: "Our thoughts are with your family and friends at this sad time."
