TV star JADE GOODY arrived back in the UK today from India to seek treatment in her fight against cancer.

The 24-yerar-old had been in India appearing in Bigg Boss - the country's version of Big Brother - when she was called in to the diary room and told she had been diagnosed with cervical cancer.

The mum-of-two will return to her local hospital, Princess Alexandra hospital in Essex where she previously spent a week being tested, to talk to her consultant, a cancer specialist, her spokesman MARK THOMPSON confirmed.

Thomas said: 'She's seeing a specialist. There's no more to say at the moment. She is talking to her consultant'.

The star - who found fame on the UK's Big Brother 3 show, is said to be 'upset and frightened' .

Looking tired and drained Jade was visibly upset when she landed at Heeathrow, telling an airport personnel escorting her through the terminal: "I don't want any more, I can't do this."

She broke down in tears as she was met by a number of photographers and left the airport through a private exit. For daily celebrity news updates sign up to our newsletter www.ahlanlive.com/newsletter
