Jade Goody's widower felt really low


Jack Tweed contemplated suicide after he was charged with raping a woman at his Essex home.

The 22-year-old and his friend Anthony Davis, 26, were accused of assaulting a teenager after a night out in London in September.

Last week, the pair were found not guilty by a jury after a trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

‘As soon as you get arrested, that’s the first thing you think,’ says Jack.

‘You think, “That’s it, my name is branded as a rapist, I’m never going to get out of this.”

‘I remember my mum coming to visit me and I just wanted to end my life. I thought what’s the point? I don’t want to be branded as one of them because I’m not.

‘I think it’s disgusting. I just thought there was no point carrying on.’

Fortunately, Jack – who was married to the late Jade Goody – came to his senses.

‘[I thought] that it was selfish really on my family,’ he explains on ITV’s This Morning.

Jack and Anthony, an estate agent of Stradbroke Drive, Chigwell, Essex, had denied the charges.
