His critics assert that he had no paranormal powers and merely used basic cold reading techniques.
Fry hosted a number of television programmes dealing with the supernatural, including Most Haunted, Psychic Private Eyes and 6ixth Sense with Colin Fry, produced by Living TV.
Psychic Private Eyes on the Zone Reality channel co-starred fellow psychics Tracy Higgs and Tony Stockwell and purported to conduct “real life psychic investigations into baffling murders and disappearances”.
Fry, who at one time performed under the stage name of “Lincoln”, was reportedly exposed in 1992 when, during a séance, the lights were unexpectedly turned on and he was seen holding a spirit trumpet in the air, which the audience had been led to believe was being levitated by spiritual energy.
British medium and television personality Colin Fry died of lung cancer on August 25, 2015 at age 53.
