Beeb Broadcaster in Black Magic Brouhaha
FRIENDS and colleagues of BBC 5Live presenter ADRIAN CHILES are said to be gravely concerned following the radio personality’s recent conversion to Voodooism. And they fear that the popular Brummie host has been anointed as a bokor, or black magic Voodoo priest, and that he has been using BBC property as a locus for sacrifice and initiation ceremonies.
Chiles, 60, who was a telly favourite in such shows as The One Show, Christine and Adrian’s Friendship Test and My Mediterranean with Adri
an Chiles, is also accused of dabbling in other sorcery associated with the Haitian dark arts cult including:
Using gris-gris charms to boost ratings of his Chiles on Friday radio show.
Visiting the kalfou, a set of cross roads where good and evil intersect, as part of a midnight deal to help West Bromwich Albion avoid relegation from the Premier League.
Employing the services of lougarous, shape-shifting black magicians, to curse competing 5 Live broadcaster Emma Barnett with a slight throat infection.
Honouring, through rites and offerings, Papa Legba, the supernatural, immortal spirit who guards the gateway between the material and spiritual worlds, to avoid parking tickets.
Wearing a black cat bone as a mojo to entice Susannah Reid to lean forward in a low cut dress so as he can get a good view of her breasts. The former Match of the
Day 2 presenter has so far refused to comment on the rumours of his indoctrination into the unorthodox New Orleans sect. However, BBC Chairman Mark Thompson said there was no truth in the rumour that licence payers’ money was being spent on any forms of necromancy or shamanism. He than shook a sacred magic rattle fashioned from a gourd at reporters and threatened hexes on anyone making such allegations.
Chiles play: Is presenter Adrian involed in Voodoo cult?
