You Can Now Study For A GCSE In 'Jade Goody!'

A new GCSE course will see the study of celebrated thicky and Queen of Ignorance, Jade Goody. And yes, you did read that right!

The former dental nurse became famous for being a complete-and-utter dimwit during her 2002 stay in the BB House, having thought that East Angular (Anglia) was abroad, managed to confuse the country Rio de Janeiro with footy player Rio Ferdinand, and invented plenty of new words like wirelophone, Portuganese and tictactical.

However, kids won't actually be learning from the stupid former celebrity, who made millions-of-pounds after leaving the UK's most famous house but had a huge fall from grace when she returned during CBB5 in January 2007.

Rather, the media portfolio unit of the GCSE run by the Oxford, Cambridge and RSA board will ask students to compare how BBC News and a newspaper of their choice covered the International race-row caused by Jade, which got so out-of-hand that the current Prime Minister had to apologise to India for her behaviour.

For, second time around – and appearing as a media-savvy and affluent celebrity rather than a mouthy girl from a Bermondsey council estate – Jade's bullying behaviour and racist comments aimed at eventual Winner Shilpa Shetty shocked the nation, resulting in over 40,000 complaints to TV watchdog Ofcom.

About the fact that young students will be studying such a controversial role-model, Ofsted's former Chief Inspector of Schools Chris Woodhead said, "Media studies has always been nonsense, now it has degenerated into farce," before dubbing Jade neither interesting or worthwhile enough for students to be concentrating on.

A year-and-a-half on, we're not sure if Jade deserves a bit of slack now, but we have to say that when we think of notable people to study for GSCEs the names Shakespeare, Einstein, Darwin, Newton and Brunel spring to mind...

...what IS the world coming-to when the name 'Goody' gets added to that list?!
