London: Cancer-stricken British reality star Jade Goody, who is living her last few days at her residence here, defied all odds to view the sunset and asked for cans of Coke on Monday night.

“The doctors are amazed. Jade managed to see the sunset and was asking for cans of Coke. She’s an incredibly strong woman, quoted a friend as saying.

Ms. Goody not only propped up in bed to see the sky at night, she was eager to catch one last glimpse of sunny fields before she dies.

The reality star, 27, lifted her head and enjoyed the view from her dining room bay windows. She even summoned her 21-year-old husband Jack Tweed and said: “Sit me up and let me look out over the fields.” Ms. Goody managed a smile as she enjoyed the sunshine at her home in Upshire, Essex.

Ms. Goody is insisting that her children — Bobby (5) and Freddie (4) — should not be present when she dies.

Ms. Goody’s publicist Max Clifford said she was too sick for a visit from Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty. — IANS, ANI
