Celebrity Big Brother contestant has counselling over race row

Jade Goody is being treated for shock and depression over the Celebrity Big Brother race row, her agent has said.

The star’s representation, John Noel Management, claims that Jade has been receiving medical attention since she left the house and has also been a victim of bullying herself at the hands of the media.

Jade, 25, could be facing career meltdown over her treatment of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty.

In a statement, Mr Noel said: ‘Jade has had the courage to say sorry, to face her critics and to try to make amends… but certain factions in the media will not be happy without blood. Aren’t they doing to Jade what Jade is accused of doing?’
