After Derren Brown; stage illusionist and celebrity hypnotist, sensationally apologised to his female fan (Molly Bridges of Blackburn) for being gay, former darling of Saturday night TV and doyen of Hampstead Heath, Michael Barrymore has accused the media mesmerist of making him gay.
According to Barrymore he had a private session with Brown in the 1990's after which his feelings for his long suffering wife and manager waned considerably. He says the worst aspect of his hypno-influenced sexuality was that he had completely forgotten how to swim.
Sources suggest that Barrymore is still trying to raise a smoke screen to hide the incident at his Essex home that to be frank no one has bothered with for some time.
Meanwhile it is thought that Brown is celebrating his new found liberty with a pool party (Just watch who you invite Derren!!!)
