Town House TV for five, 15 January to 19 February 2006 (6 episodes in 1 series)


"Why make Britain's Psychic Challenge? Surely the competitors already know who'll win?"

So quips TV critic Garry Bushell, and he has a point. Apparently an estimated 150,000 people in the UK claim to have psychic powers. (Unrelated fact: 150,000 people are admitted to hospital each year for being drunk.) So this is five's attempt to cash into the area that Living TV have made their own.

Trisha Goddard, who once had a career, fronts this softly, softly approach to testing psychic ability with little of the James Randi-esque rigour that would make this format fun. Or could you imagine Simon Cowell ripping into the psychics for failing to recognise which handbag belonged to which old lady?

A series of tests are given to our psychics each week, and the audience decide which one should be sent home.

What do we think of it? Yes, you read our mind.
