The curfew conditions imposed upon Jade Goody's fiance Jack Tweed will be relaxed to allow the couple to spend their wedding together, it has been announced.

Tweed is currently on curfew having been released early from an 18-month prison sentence imposed for an assault charge.

But with Goody - who has terminal cancer - and Tweed set to marry this weekend, the Ministry of Justice has varied Tweed's bail conditions on compassionate grounds.

A spokesman said justice secretary has "enormous sympathy" for former Big Brother star Goody and her family, adding: "She has shown extraordinary courage and our thoughts are with her."

Tweed will now be permitted to stay with Goody until 15:00 GMT on the day after their wedding.

Goody was recently told she has only months to live after cervical cancer spread to her bowel, liver and groin.

Max Clifford, the couple's publicist, commented: "We are absolutely thrilled. It will be the dream finish to her dream day, and it makes so much difference.

"Our heartfelt thanks from Jade and from Jack for allowing him to stay the evening in these very special circumstances."
