CURSE THE DAY THEY SPOKE TO THAT MAG.
Whether it is the family jewels or your new spouse you are about to lose, a feature in the world's gushiest glossy magazine is almost always to blame.
The curse is no respecter of class or status.
When supermodel Helena Christensen said her first Hello! cliche - "We have a very steady relationship" about rock star lover Michael Hutchence - they parted within days.
Fergie and Prince Andrew, Will and Julia Carling, Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland, Bill Wyman and Mandy Smith - they all went the same way.
The magazine even tried to kill off actor Ron Moody - star of Sixties musical Oliver!
As soon as it declared mournfully he "died after a stroke" it was clear that something was deeply wrong.
It was. He was alive and well and living in Cheltenham, Gloucs.
The curse of Hello! starts off innocently.
Royals, actors, pop stars and other celebrities are all given the opportunity to "invite Hello! into their home".
Soon afterwards something horrible happens.
Ex-wild child Joanne Ridley dumped husband Guy Bellingham because he wanted to take a second bride and start a New Age harem soon after Hello! featured their wedding.
In 1992 French beauty Brigitte Bardot used the magazine to tell of her love for her husband. A few days later she was recovering from a tranquilliser overdose.
Actress Jane Seymour and husband David Flynn also posed for Hello! - then split up before the edition went on sale.
