Mystic Meg spent the 1990s predicting National Lottery winners.

He also wrote the zodiac for The Sun newspaper for more than two decades.

Lake – in addition to being an astrologer – was also a futurist and worked with runes, crystal balls, tarot and numerology.

Mentalist Uri Geller wrote of Mystic Meg’s death: “The quintessential fortune teller brought mystery and mysticism to millions of believers. Defy the peevish skeptics. Much love and positive energy, Meg, on your further journey.”
