Jade Goody's grovelling to the Indian nation will step up another level when she joins the south Asian country's version of Big Brother.

The reality TV star sparked a diplomatic crisis in January 2007 when she bullied Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty in the UK celebrity version of the show.

Since then Goody has found herself shunned by anyone and everyone and has been forced to do everything she can to repair her damaged image ever since.

According to reports Goody will appear on the show, called Bigg Boss, to explain away her actions. Her treatment of Shetty last year attracted over 30,000 complaints from members of the public.

Now Shetty has an opportunity to get her own back. As it happens she is the host of Bigg Boss – and so will be in perfect position to make Goody's appearance as uncomfortable as it could possibly be.

It is possible Goody's focus may be elsewhere. She is rumoured to be receiving £100,000 for the appearance.
