The funeral for British reality television star Jade Goody, who died early Sunday will be held on April 4.

A funereal procession will depart from the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant's home in Upshire, Essex at noon GMT April 4, before a service at St John's Baptist Church in Buckhurst Hill.

The 27-year-old will then be buried at Epping Forest Burial Park in North Weald, reports contactmusic.com.

TV screens are to be placed outside the church to relay the funeral service to mourners outside and thousands of fans are expected to line the funeral route next month.
