Sceptics have invited Sally Morgan to demonstrate her ability to communicate with the dead in a specially designed test.

A celebrity psychic who claims to speak with the dead in sellout shows across the country has been challenged by sceptics to prove her supernatural powers.They have invited TV "star psychic" Sally Morgan to demonstrate her ability to connect with the spirit world in a specially designed test in Liverpool on Monday.

The Halloween challenge is backed by the US paranormal investigator James Randi, and qualifies as the first step towards claiming a million-dollar prize established by the James Randi Educational Foundation for any psychic who can prove their "gift" to be real.

Morgan, whose website offers psychic readings over premium rate phone lines, has written three books and is filming the third series of Psychic Sally on the Road for Sky LIVING.

Sceptic groups, led by the science writer Simon Singh, arranged the test after one of Morgan's shows in Dublin last month at which some members of the audience reported hearing someone at the back of the theatre apparently feeding her information on stage.

She'll be proven to be a fake and fraud just as Sylvia Browne was.
Don't really see the challenge here.

Is this because of a radio caller who said Sally was cheating?

Why would she accept the challenge. She sells out. All she needs is believers and she already has that. She knows she's a cold reader....

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

if shes for real, she will accept cause shes got nothing to hide.

i think shes a fake though, from reading about the people hearing her cheating and having things read to her from another room.

Let me simplify this for everyone-- if a psychic is making money, he or she is a fake.  It's one of the many reasons I don't charge for my readings.

Uri Geller was so popular before James Randi exposed him as a fake. The same thing will happen to her.

Kinda reminds me of the people who go onto the jeremy Kyle show to do a lie detector or DNA test knowing they are cheats!
Do people just enjoy public humiliation or do they think they can actually beat the tests?

In this case though the type of people who spend money on these sort of 'services' won't be detered by something as small as proof of fakery!

I was told by a minister a long time ago, that if a person had a gift, you should never charge for that gift.  He believes that it would be a gift from God and as such, should be given in the way it was gotten, as a gift.

Also, if a person claims to have a gift and doesn't, that is a sin against God and that person shall have a terrible afterlife.

On occasions, I have heard, felt, and saw things and at times will know something that is about to happen or know something about someone that I shouldn't.  It doesn't happen all the time and I cannot control it at all.

I do believe in God and know the penalty if I am lying about such a thing.

In the case of Sally, if she were a true psychic, she is going about it entirely the wrong way and if she is a fake, well, either way she is damned.

Ok, any psychics in here who don't want to sell out, please pm me and show me the truth. I'm sick of all this glorification in the public media which can't be proven.

There's no such thing as psychic abilities-- only the natural intuition that we all have.  That said, many people have still referred to me as "psychic" even though I'm not a fan of that term.

If you PM me with your first name, age, and gender I will be happy to give you a reading.

Word of advice, whenever you see an overweight woman with short, fake dyed hair, you can be pretty sure she's a fake...
