The city of Rome is braced for a major earthquake said to have been prophecized by Keith Chegwin back in 1979.
In a special edition of Cheggers Goes Pop the chubby scouser is heard muttering off camera "Rome will be destroyed on the 11th May 2011 by a bloody big earthquake. And now it's Madness and 'One Step Beyond'". The claims have been dismissed by the Vatican, but the people of Rome are not so sure.
People have left the city rather than take the chance. Fabio Mangitotti told the Spoof "If I have to die, I want to die with my wife and kids, and masses of people will do the same as me." So it's all round to Fabio's to die with his wife and kids. I hope he's got a big house.
The Vatican has appealed for calm. A very senior cardinal who did not wish to be named said "Keith Chegwin? Wasn't he on Swap Shop?" Indeed he was and the Vatican would gladly swap its location if his prediction turns out to be true. A great city could be ruined by the force of mother nature, and it was all prophecized by a guy who used to work with Noel Edmonds.
Cheggers Plays Pope?
There are some who claim Chegwin to to be a visionary and are calling for him to be made Pope in a bid to save the Catholic Church. Maggie Philbin and John Craven have also been lined up for top jobs in the new Catholic Church in a radical bid to avert disaster. If Rome fails to wake tomorrow we may have Pope Cheggers I.
