London (ANI): Late Brit celebrity Jade Goody's mom Jackiey and widower Jack Tweed have been working on the final plans of the Big Brother star's funeral so as to give her the 'perfect send-off'. The plans for the funeral had been made by Goody after she came to know that she would not survive the cervical cancer she was suffering from.

As per the plan, a cortege of 21 cars will follow the coffin from her home in Upshire, Essex, to St John the Baptist in Buckhurst Hill on April 4. Her sons Bobby and Freddie will follow the coffin, which has been made of Royal Windsor Forest oak, to the front of the church before being seated with Tweed, 21.

The service will begin with Jade's favourite hymn, 'All Things Bright and Beautiful', and her best friend, bridesmaid and Living TV producer Kate Jackson, will give a reading calling for family and friends to celebrate Jade's life.

Goody and Tweed's favourite song, 'Last Request' by Paulo Nutini, will play at the end of the service. “Jade gave Jackiey and Jack a detailed list of things to do," the Sun quoted a family friend as saying. “In some ways she is organising this from beyond the grave," the friend added.

Thousands of fans are set to line the funeral route in a display of public mourning not seen since Princess Diana's death in 1997. Plasma screens will be put up outside the church to broadcast the ceremony to fans.
