The family lived in a terraced house on Lead Street in Leicester’s city centre, which was destroyed as part of the city’s slum clearance in the mid-1950s.

He dropped out of school at the age of 15 after being noticed by Coventry City, who signed him as a goalkeeper for their youth team in 1967. He was a member of the Coventry City youth squad that finished second in the FA Youth Cup to Burnley in 1968.

Is David Icke Gay?
No, he is not gay.
Icke was a well-known BBC sports presenter as well as a Green Party spokesman. He claimed to be the son of God on the Terry Wogan show of the BBC in April 1991, and believed that the earth would eventually be destroyed by tidal waves and earthquakes. His life was changed forever by the episode, which transformed him from a well-known household name to a laughingstock in an instant.
Nonetheless, he began to refine his theories, and in four books written over a seven year period; The Robots’ Rebellion (1994), And the Truth Shall Set You Free (1995), The Biggest Secret (1999), and Children of the Matrix (2001). He laid forth a moral and political worldview that combined New Age spiritualism with a passionate denunciation of what he sees as totalitarian developments in the contemporary world.
The theory that mankind is controlled by a shadowy society of reptilian humanoids known as the Babylonian Brotherhood, and that many influential personalities, including George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, Kris Kristofferson, and Boxcar Willie, are reptilian, is at the core of his ideas.
Icke has been chastised for alleging that the reptilians were the original authors of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a 1903 Russian forgery purporting to be a Jewish scheme for world conquest, an assertion that has provoked indignation from the far right and skepticism from Jewish organizations.
Icke vehemently argues that this is anti-semitic in any way. After opposition from the Canadian Jewish Congress, he was allowed to enter Canada in 1999 after telling immigration authorities that when he said lizards, he meant lizards. But, his books were also pulled from the shelves of Indigo Books, a Canadian chain.
Despite all the success achieved by David Icke, he has not yet been given any awards.
