Nigel Moores was the son of pools magnate Ceci and best known as the husband of Mystic Meg who was a astrologer. She left behind a £1.3 million fortune in her will with cash going to care for horses and being shared between family and friends. After reading in her horoscope at seven that she would marry a wealthy guy, she fell in love with millionaire football pools heir Nigel Moores and felt he was her destiny.
Meg was left devastated when Nigel, 39, died in a vehicle crash in southern France in 1977. She died in Notting Hill with her seven cats, never remarrying. Her mother Millicent Howard said Meg thought Nigel was her only. Nigel, the Littlewoods pools dynasty heir, died worth £9m, or £48.4m today.
“It can be the most routine of routine journeys that takes you towards your soulmate – and you may not realise this straight away.”
