tomb find tut-tutted; with sports betting's top tipster DEREK MCGOVERN E-MAIL: betsguru@aol.com.

Byline: ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY JOHN SHAW

AN Egyptologist has claimed the mysterious Queen Nefertiti will be found in Tutankhamun's tomb, quite possibly going through his pockets.

Her whereabouts were bound to be discovered sooner or later - the writing's on the wall.

But I am not sure that we should trust the judgement of Egyptologists, who are just a bunch of mummies boys.

We had the Ice Age and the Stone Age - and Ancient Egypt was the Band Age.

Last year, they discovered a mummy covered in chocolate and nuts - it was believed to be a Pharaoh Rocher.

Englishman Dr Nicholas Reeves claims to have discovered secret doors in Tutankhamun's tomb that lead to Nefertiti's chamber.

Once opened he hopes he will find the beautiful queen, possibly still applying her make-up.

He has no idea how far the builders managed to get in constructing the chamber, but they have said they will return sometime on Monday between the hours of 8am and 6pm.

Some archaeologists doubt Reeves and have told him: "Show me the mummy."

My uncle got a degree in archaeology and also in osteopathy - these days he is thriving as a Cairopractor.

Hills offer 3-1 that Nefertiti will be found buried in Tut's tomb, 2-9 that she won't be, and 33-1 that she's found under a Leicester car park.
