Sky Living has announced a one-off documentary in tribute to Jade Goody
.Jade's Legacy: The Fight Goes On
will focus on the battle against cervical cancer in memory of the late Big Brother star, who died from the disease in 2009
The documentary will show how the number of women taking smear tests has fallen sharply in the past two years, despite an initial rise shortly after the death of Goody in 2009.
Jane Johnson, director of Sky Living said of the programme: "It is saddening to see that the cervical cancer statistics have gone up again since Jade's death.
"After breast cancer, it's the second most common cancer in women aged 35 and under. We hope this moving documentary will continue Jade's legacy and help raise awareness once again of this cruel disease."Jade's Legacy: The Fight Goes On
is directed by Cat Lawson. It will air on the channel on Thursday, June 7.
Last year it was claimed that Goody's phone was hacked by journalists during her cancer battle
