Derren Brown denies 'sexuality change' TV stunt plans

By
Derren Brown has denied claims that he will attempt to change people's sexuality in a future TV stunt.

The Sun reported the news based on quotes from an interview the illusionist gave to the Gay Times, in which he said it would be "interesting" to attempt to turn a straight person gay and vice versa.

"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," he originally said.

Brown has since tweeted: "Article in @TheSunNewspaper saying my next show is about changing sexuality: total rubbish. Thanks 4 that, being printed everywhere as fact.

"Same paper printed 'story' that Steven from [Apocalypse] was an actor. And when we spoke to journo, she said she didn't really believe it herself."

He then joked: "Exclusive: the next show is changing The Sun into a publication that reports facts."

Apocalypse saw Brown convince teaching assistant Steven Brosnan that the world had been taken over by zombies last year.
