Share article:

CJ de Mooi will start a "new course of treatment" in hospital on Tuesday (23.04.19).

The former "Eggheads" star revealed on Twitter over the weekend that he is "dying of AIDS" and in danger of losing his home, but he's maintaining a positive attitude ahead of starting a fresh medical procedure this week.

A post on his social media page on Monday (22.04.19), believed to be from his friend Joe, who also adds updates to the account, wrote: "Let's all just cheer up a bit please! CJ is always positive and will start posting his morning videos again soon as people really miss them.

"He goes to hospital tomorrow to start a new course of treatment so we'll keep smiling and enjoy the sunny weather shan't we?"

And the 49-year-old quizzer also personally thanked his "Twitter family" for their messages of support.

"Get out there, enjoy the sun and remember you are amazing! CJ."

CJ - who lives in Caldicot, Monmouthshire, with his husband Andrew Doran - revealed over the weekend he is trying to "stay positive" about his prognosis but claimed the stress of recent years, which saw him axed from "Eggheads" over a wrongful accusation of sexual assault and rack up huge legal bills fighting extradition to the Netherlands after being accused of manslaughter, murder, assault and battery in Amsterdam in 1988, has shortened his life.

He wrote: "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 (sic)"
