Reality television star Jade Goody has said that she is starting to lose her hair as a result of chemotherapy sessions.

According to Now! magazine, the former 'Big Brother' star said: "Even though I'm having a break from treatment, I'm getting bald patches on my head now, which is awful."

"My hair's falling out on my pillow and it's literally doing my head in. Because it's so short, I can't really disguise the patches."

"It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. There are plenty of people out there in the same boat as me or with alopecia."

"I'm going to look like a hard-boiled egg, but it doesn't really matter. Life and health are far more important than having hair," she said.
