Margaret Lake, a television astrologer better known as Mystic Meg has passed away at the age of 80.

She appeared on the National Lottery in the 1990s and was a well-known television personality at the time. She has been penning horoscopes for the Sun for more than 20 years.

Lake, who had been hospitalised since last month after contracting the flu, passed away in the early hours of Thursday morning, according to the newspaper.

According to her agent Dave Shapland, “Without any question, she was Britain’s most famous astrologer by a million miles.

“Nobody came close to Meg in that respect. She was followed by millions in this country and also around the world.

“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 what an impact she made.”

Commenting on her departure, the Sun’s editor Victoria Newton said, “This is devastating news. We have lost an icon.

“For more than two decades Mystic Meg has been a must-read column and cemented her as Britain’s most famous astrologer.

“She was a true professional whose guidance helped our readers daily – our postbag bears testament to this.”

Lake’s most well-known performance was her 45-second reading of Mystic Meg Predicts on the National Lottery, which she gave from 1994 to 2000. In this reading, she sought to anticipate information about the lottery winner in the future.
