Derren Brown begging for your money

Derren Brown revealing the winning Lottery numbers

Illusionist Derren Brown was tonight due to transform himself into a beggar to see if he can influence how much people will donate.

The star — who last week appeared to choose the correct National Lottery numbers — placed subliminal messages around a shopping centre to see if it would affect the generosity of passers-by.

Brown adopted a tatty beard and woolly hat disguise for the show, to be screened on Channel 4 tonight, in which he will focus on hidden messages to control people. As part of tonight’s stunt — How To Control The Nation at 9pm — he will also try to influence viewers by trying to make them immobile. He plans to make people “stick” to their seats while they are watching the show.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Avoid getting entangled with a legal matter. Launching a lawsuit will cause more problems than it is worth. You're better off walking away from a troublemaker who has lots of time to waste in the court system. Cut your losses and focus on making a fresh start. You have the ability to build a secure financial future.More
