Illusionist Derren Brown is planning to change someone's sexual orientation for his latest TV stunt.
It isn't the first time one of Derren's stunts has attracted controversy, his past tricks include a game of Russian Roulette on live television and an attempt to predict the correct lottery numbers. His most recent trick involved convincing a teaching assistant that the end of the world had arrived. Now Derren has decided to turn his attention towards something a little different - turning a straight man gay.
"I was thinking about this the other day - it would be interesting wouldn't it ?" he said. "To take a gay guy and make him straight and a straight guy and make him gay." The illusionist insists however that he isn't interested in causing controversy, despite the fact that many of his tricks tend to attract a lot of it. "Controversy has never interested me for its own sake," he said. "It's always been about doing stuff that feels dramatic."
"The television illusionist Derren Brown is courting controversy again by planning his most audacious trick yet – persuading a straight man he is gay."
