A shaken <a href="https://okmagazine.com/search/goody" target="_blank"><strong>Jade Goody</strong></a> is recovering after being confronted in her hospital room by a woman with a hammer.

The terminally-ill UK reality star woke up to find the woman leaning over her clutching the tool at London’s Royal Marsden Hospital, her publicist Max Clifford said.

Police were called and they arrested the 41-year-old suspect, but she was eventually released from custody with no further action being taken.

The incident happened on Sunday shortly after Goody’s husband Jack Tweed had left the room to go to get a cup of tea.

Mr Clifford said security had been stepped up following the security breach. He said Goody was not hurt but was "very shaken up".

Police officers searched the woman intruder and found her to be in possession of a hammer. She was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon and taken into custody at a west London police station.

Mr Tweed spent several hours with Goody on Sunday as she tried to rest following Saturday’s emotional christening ceremony at the hospital.

Her two sons Bobby, five, and Freddy, four, were also christened with their mother during what Mr Clifford described as a "very short and emotional service".

He said completing the ceremony and getting married to Tweed meant the 27-year-old had done all she wanted to before she died.

Goody, who has been told she has only weeks to live, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in August last year.
