Hi, why "Is it true that you ate eigthteen eggs yesterday?" is not valid? Thanks a lot

That is closer to: "Je pravda, že jsi včera...". That brings another clause to the sentence.

Why is 'yesterday did you really eat eighteen eggs' not accepted. It is used quite often in uk english

I did find some examples on the internet, but it seems to be used very marginally. Have you got some supporting references, grammar documents or frequencies of use?
