She'd taken her clothes off after she was cruelly goaded into stripping during a drinking game with housemates.
A new dawn: Although Kate Lawler won Big Brother and the £70,000 prize, it was Jade who the public were really interested in Despite the ridicule and a vilification she became one of the most popular housemates and 9.4million viewers tuned in to watch her entertaining post-eviction interview with Davina Mc Call.
She went on to become by far the biggest success in the programme's history, earning herself an estimated £8million fortune through autobiographies, follow up television shows, her own perfume and fitness DVDs.
Some hailed her bravery and dedication to securing a future for her two young sons long after she is gone, others felt it was ghoulish entertainment and a step too far.
On leaving school she found work as a dental nurse but in 2002, the chance came to escape her difficult life when Big Brother announced auditions of their third series.
Two months before entering the house she had a scare over the cervical cancer which was to claim her life.
It was on the Indian version of the reality show later, where Jade had been trying to make amends, that she was diagnosed with cancer - fittingly live on air.
Her soap opera life reached the ultimate conclusion earlier this year when the illness became terminal and she was given just weeks to live.
