British quizzer and gay model, CJ de Mooi,49, has taken to Twitter to reveal that he is dying of AIDS.
The former Eggheads quiz show star whose real name is Joseph Connagh, wrote on Sunday: ‘I’ve been living with AIDS for 30 years but the agony of the last 3 years means I may not have many left.
‘I’m outwardly healthy, still running and am staying positive I can get better.
‘Thank you all for your love and if I can do anything to help any of you, please just ask. CJ.’
CJ who lives in Caldicot, Monmouthshire, with his husband of three years Andrew Doran, wrote in another tweet: ‘CJ is, unsurprisingly, feeling down but always has the sanctuary of running which I believe has literally been a life saver for him.
Thank you as ever for your support and we both wish you a very happy Sunday. Joe .’
