A s the alumni of this year’s Love Island readjust to the outside world and try to parlay their 15 minutes of fame into provincial panto roles and protein-shake endorsement deals, Jade: The Reality Star Who Changed Britain (Channel 4) was a salutary lesson. Ten years after the death of Jade Goody , this documentary traced her meteoric rise and tragic fall . When the Bermondsey dental nurse with drug addict parents appeared in the 2002 series of Big Brother, she was initially vilified. Snobs dismissed her as “thick”. Tabloids cruelly caricatured her as a “chav” and a “pig”. Gradually, though, Goody won over millions with her wit, warmth and guileless honesty. By the time she was voted out of the Big Brother house, she was a media sweetheart, made a fortune and even considered running for Mayor of London. The mind boggles.

With a mighty crack and a cloud of smoke the first shot fired across the river in front of a historic palace and beside an iconic symbol of Britain. On the stroke of noon at the Tower of London a battery manned by the Honourable Artillery Company began a solemn Death Gun Salute to mark the passing of a Prince. And for the next 40 minutes shots rang out across the UK and the Commonwealth as serving military personnel paid their tribute to a wartime hero. Crowds had lined the Tower of London to watch this salute to the Duke of Edinburgh while many others flocked to lay tributes at royal palaces.
