Reality television star Jade Goody has revealed that she has started planning her funeral following her recent cancer diagnosis.

The former 'Big Brother' star, who is battling cervical cancer, told OK! magazine: "Most people plan their weddings. But I'm planning my funeral."

"Some people say they don't want people crying, but I want people to cry over me. And I don't want anyone to have a booze up when I'm dead. They should have a cup of tea and be crying."

"I'd want to have an open funeral and let everyone who wanted to come along."

"If there's one thing I would look forward to about dying it's that I'd want to be looking down on my family and continue to be part of their lives."

Goody also spoke about finding religion, saying: "I've never been a God person, but now I pray every time I go to bed and say stuff like: 'Let me see my children grow'."

Referring to her funeral planning, Goody said: "Maybe at my funeral someone could send me a wreath in the shape of a Marmite bottle with the words underneath, you either loved her or hated her."

The star also said that she had cut her hair in preparation for chemotherapy, saying: "I'm going to look like a boiled egg!"
