What Was the Cause of Mystic Meg’s Death?

Dave Shapland, who had been with Meg for a long time, said in a statement on Thursday that she had died. He said, “She was the most famous astrologer in Britain by a million miles. Meg was the best at that. No one else came close. Millions of people in this country and all over the world followed her.

“She even became part of the English language – if a politician, somebody from showbiz or ordinary people in the street are asked a tricky question, they will say, Who do you think I am, Mystic Meg? “It shows how much of an impact she had,” said Shapland.

She was born in Accrington, Lancashire, on July 27, 1942. As a child, she learned about the stars from her grandmother. Meg’s first job was as a sub-editor at the News of the World after she graduated from the University of Leeds. Then, in the 1980s, she changed her name to Eileen Anderson and was hired as the regular astrologer for the paper.

Meg Was the First Person to Show the National Lottery Draw on TV

In 1994, when the National Lottery Draw was first shown on BBC One, the fortune-teller got a lot of attention. She kept going on the show until the year 2000, and she used to know things about the lottery winner before they were made public. Meg stayed an astrologer for News of the World until 2011 when the paper stopped publishing.
