Open auditions are to be held for the production

A musical based on the life of the late reality TV star Jade Goody is on the way.

The project is being managed by her former business partner Danny Hayward, with details of open auditions set to be released within a month, reports BBC News.

“Her dream was as a little girl was to be in a musical,” Hayward said. “So obviously when she passed away it felt fitting to do something like this.”

The TV personality’s publicist said that the deal was not “signed and sealed” yet, but did say he would help with promotion and casting should it go ahead.

Goody died on March 22 this year aged 27 after a battle with cancer.
