Shilpa Shetty congratulates Goody ahead of her wedding

entertainment Updated: Feb 19, 2009 15:05 IST

Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty called up her former Big Brother house-mate Jade Goody to congratulate her ahead of her wedding with fiance Jack Tweed this Sunday.

"Shilpa called the Royal Marsden to tell Jade she was sorry she can't be at the ceremony as she is filming in India. It was a really warm friendly chat. Shilpa wanted Jade to know she was thinking of her and it really lifted her spirits," a source close to Goody told Daily Mail.

Goody, who is suffering from cervical cancer, was severely criticised for her alleged racist remarks against Shilpa when both were participants at UK's reality show Celebrity Big Brother.

Goody had reportedly told Shilpa on the show, "Go back to your slums."

However, the 27-year-old Goody later apologised and the pair have since made up.

Ironically, Goody, who is now terminally ill was diagnosed with cervical cancer when she was participating in the Indian version of the Celebrity Big Brother which was being hosted by Shilpa.

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Goody called her best friend Kate Jackson and four other close friends in a bedside meeting and asked them to be her bridesmaids for her wedding this weekend.
