There won’t be any more calls to Miss Cleo … the iconic TV psychic is dead after battling cancer … TMZ has learned.

We’re told Cleo was originally diagnosed with colon cancer … but it spread to her liver and lungs.

The rep said Cleo remained a “pillar of strength” during her illness … and died surrounded by family and friends.

Cleo’s Jamaican character and her psychic commercials became a cult classic in the late ’90s … thanks to her catchphrase, “CALL ME NOW!”

Miss Cleo was actually born in L.A. — she just nailed the accent.

After the Psychic Readers Network closed shop, Cleo bounced around to various jobs … including voicing a character in the video game, “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.”
