    Woah
    I used to love eggheads when I was at uni but haven't watched it for years.
    Apparently he wrote in his autobiography that he had killed a man back in the 80's.

    I wonder if he will now claim that it's all lies and he made it up to make his book more dramatic?
    I can't see an egghead faring well in prison...

    His real name is Joseph Connor - he adopted the 'De Mooi' surname, as it means 'handsome' in Dutch.
    I wonder if he'll pull the same strange faces he did on Eggheads when confronted with a question he didn't know the answer to, when he is interviewed by the Dutch police?

    This is the one incident of my life I do regret, writes CJ de Mooi, star of the BBCs Eggheads quiz. I was in a phone box and this old guy, obviously a massive drug user, came up behind me with a knife in his hand he told me to turn around, open my bag and give him whatever was inside I punched him so hard in the face, knocked the knife out of his hand and threw him in the canal. I fully suspect I killed him. Ive no idea what happened to him.

    I can see why the Dutch police want to talk to him, but if there is no body and no evidence, I doubt this is going to go very far.

    I heard this on the news and needless to say I'm totally astounded. It just doesn't add up and I can't make sense of it.

    Are we supposed to believe that somebody has actually read his book?

    Wasnt he, when on Eggheads, like the fat lad from school gym class who always got picked last. Even behind the posh lady who won who wants to be a millionaire, who was also near the back when God was giving out intelligence.

    The Dutch police claim they do have some unsolved deaths from the late 1980s, where they have fished bodies out of the canals.

    The more I think about this the more I think he's made it all up to boost sales of his book. I bet sales are going through the roof (well, maybe not quite) now that there's a nice juicy scandal to help publicise it.
    Or maybe he's just really, really stupid...

    I remember Kim Woodburn saying in her autobiography that she'd buried her premature baby son in the park, and hadn't registered the birth. I think she was questioned by the Police about it.


    Not quite the same as having murdered someone, but it could be that someone in the public eye wants to get their skeletons out of the closet on their own terms rather than have their secrets dug up by a journalist, iyswim.

    It's funny how so many people don't understand how simple marketing works.
