From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maurice Woodruff (April 2, 1916 - January 28, 1973) was an English clairvoyant and astrologer born and raised in London. He achieved considerable fame both in his native England and internationally due to the perceived accuracy of his predictions. He presented his predictions to the public via newspapers and also via stage, cabaret and television appearances.

Maurice was himself the son of another well-known clairvoyant, Vera Woodruff.

In addition to his appearances on British television, Maurice hosted the hour-long program Maurice Woodruff Predicts on American TV for a short-lived period during 1969. He also authored several books including "The secrets of foretelling your own future" (1969), "Probing the unknown: The personal experiences of a psychic" (1971), and "Woody" (1967), a biographical account of his mother's colourful life and career.

Maurice had a considerable number of private clients including several well-known celebrities. One of his most famous clients was the actor Peter Sellers, who was apparently reluctant to make any major career or life decisions without a consultation.

Stephen Fry portrayed Woodruff in the 2004 film The Life and Death of Peter Sellers and depicts him as something of a charlatan. It is open to conjecture whether this depiction is accurate or not as many had faith in Maurice's abilities.

Maurice was open about his homosexuality and had a long-term relationship with his manager Harry Arnold.

Maurice died in January 1973 after suffering a heart attack whilst on a lecture tour in Singapore.
