Derren Brown unmasked as Santa

An agent for the all-round mentalist said: ‘What had originally started as a simple hypnotic trick to help the nation give up smoking, soon spiralled into a full-blown festive illusion. Some of it was done through mirrors and misdirection, but mainly it was Derren having to squeeze down forty million chimneys on Christmas Eve’.

Asked if it was hard to convince a sceptical public that Father Christmas was real, his agent said: ‘Not harder than getting them to think that Ed Miliband was a plausible Leader of the Opposition’.
