Jackiey Budden's Biography
Although Ken Russell and Donny Tourette walked, Jackiey Budden was the first eviction from Celebrity Big Brother in 2007. In a public vote, she was up against her family and 'adopted family' - Jade, Jack, Jermaine and Shilpa.
The Guardian described Jackiey Budden as "quite famous, for having a paralysed arm, marrying a man who later went to prison, being bisexual and generally a tabloid editor's dream."
In 2003 Jade's mother Jackiey's brother entered The Guinness Book of Records for the longest tattoo session. Kevin Budden spent 33 hours being tattooed by Chris Goodwill in Plumstead, South East London.
The official Channel 4 Big Brother site stated that "Jackiey ... lost the use in one arm in a motorbike accident that killed her brother, and she was cared for by a teenage Jade."
Jade's mother, Jackiey Budden has had two types of high profile makeovers. One was ITV's 60 Minute Makeover of her flat in Bermondsey; and the other was on Living TV's Extreme Makeover: a lower face lift, neck lift, brow lift, nose job, breast implant, breast uplift, laser eye surgery and dental reconstruction.
Jackiey said on Celebrity Big Brother that she was a Rasta for 19 years.
On 22 March 2009, Jackiey Budden was at Jade Goody's bedside when she passed away and declared: "My beautiful daughter is at peace."
In June 2009, The Mail reported that Jackiey Budden, who was a lesbian for 25 years, left the UK after falling romantically for ex-soldier Jason Cooper in Tenerife.
