Hypnotist Derren Brown has proposed to turn a straight man gay for his next television stunt.

The hypnotist, who came out as gay four years ago, will also attempt to make a gay man attracted to women. Talking about his latest trick, Derren said:

I was thinking about this the other day — it would be interesting wouldn’t it? To take a gay guy and make him straight and a straight guy and make him gay.


Apart from the weirdness of this whole stunt, I’m just wondering how exactly he’s going to prove that his ‘trick’ has worked.

So far, Derren Brown has made someone believe the world has ended, turned someone into an assassin and told us how to win the lottery (which didn’t work, I tried).

However, this might be one of his weirdest tricks to date.

What do you think? Is this reality TV gone a step too far? Or just some light-hearted entertainment?
