National Lottery astrology star Mystic Meg dies aged 80
MYSTIC Meg has died aged 80 after a short battle with illness.
The astrologer, made famous by her weekly National Lottery predictions, passed away at 3.45am yesterday.
It comes after the star, real name Margaret Lake, was admitted to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, last month with the flu.
She made her name as an astrologer in national newspapers and telling fortunes over the phone, before landing her National Lottery TV job, which she did from 1994 to 2000. Tributes have poured in for Meg, who lived with her seven cats in a three-bedroom flat in Notting Hill. Daily Mail astrologer Oscar Cainer said Mystic Meg, pictured, made ‘the stars mainstream’, adding ‘her unique style and approach to astrology had such a huge impact on our lives’. Her agent of 34 years, Dave Shapland, told the Sun: ‘She was Britain’s most famous astrologer by a million miles.’
