A Rather Embarrassing Night for Psychic Sally in Middlesbrough

I recently went to to see the 'psychic to the stars' Sally Morgan at Middlesbrough town hall, and if there was one word I could use to describe my night it would be 'boring'. First off I feel I have to say that I personally don't believe that psychics exist so, as you can imagine, I find people like Sally distasteful. This, however, was not the reason why I found the night boring as I do love this kind of thing and was genuinely excited to not only see her, but to gauge the audiences reaction to her show. The reason that it was boring was because the audience did not respond well to her after relatively early on in her performance, she showed the level of her psychic abilities.

Psychic Sally Middlesbrough

For those who don't know, psychic Sally Morgan is a British television and stage artist who claims to have (you guessed it...) psychic abilities. She believes that she inherited her abilities from her Grandmother who was affectionately known locally as the witch of Fulham. She has been the star of her own show and has an extensive list of clients including celebrities and royalty, and is currently on the road showing off her psychic abilities.

Sally came to Middlesbrough on Friday night and her show started off very well. Even though she was getting the vast majority of what she was saying wrong the audience did not seem to mind and seemed to be having a good time. The point at which the audience became disillusioned with the performance was quite specific. One aspect of the show is that audience members can submit photographs of dead loved ones, in the hope that Sally will select theirs, and give a psychic reading from it. Sally pulled out of a box on stage one of these pictures. She held the picture up to the camera and it was projected on the large screen behind her. The picture was of a middle-aged woman and by the clothes she was wearing and the quality of the image, I guessed it was taken some time in the 1990s. Sally immediately began to get communications from beyond the grave from a man holding a baby named Annabel……or was it Becky. Noticing that no one in the audience was responding, Sally asked the person who submitted the photo to stand up. A rather small chunky woman at the centre of the hall stood up and Sally once again began to get messages from the afterlife. She was informed that this man and baby were somehow linked to the lady in the picture. However the woman in the audience (who was now also projected behind Sally) disagreed and started to look increasingly confused as, presumably, nothing Sally was saying made any sense to her. Sally then decided to flat out ask her if the woman in the picture had any children who passed and, when informed that that she hadn’t, responded by saying “I will leave that then”.

Sally then became in direct contact with the woman in the photo who began to tell her that there was a lot of confusion around her death and that she felt it was very very quick. She later went on to say that the day Wednesday has a specific link to her death and that she either died on a Wednesday or was taken ill that day. As the woman in the audience was not responding to any thing Sally was saying, she decided to ask how the woman in the photo was related to her. It turns out the woman in the audience got the whole concept of submitting a picture of someone you wanted to talk to from the afterlife completely wrong – and for some unknown reason submitted a younger picture of herself.

The hall erupted in laughter, which quickly changed into disapproving mumbles that lasted the rest of the night. No matter how hard Sally tried, she was unable to get the audience back, who were becoming increasingly disgruntled with the number of ‘misses’ she was getting. Not only that, but the audience seemed to become more restrained when Sally was asking them questions. I also don’t think that they reacted well to some of the particularly offensive scenarios Sally was recreating. One involved her re-enacting a dead man flushing narcotics down a toilet to his immediate family, whilst repeatedly saying “flush it down”. Another was when she was talking to a teenage girl whose boyfriend had recently committed suicide by hanging himself. Sally told the girl that she can feel him hitting her leg and that he was, infact, re-enacting  swinging against a door as he was committing suicide.

I now think that the vast majority of people who walked out of Middlesbrough town hall that night feel as i do – that someone who is psychic should know if the person they are talking to is dead or not and that it’s quite a messed up thing for a person to pretend that they are in contact with a dead family member.

  1. If you believe sally morgan speaks to dead people then I’m afraid you deserve to be ripped off by her. She is a con artist!She has been exposed mire than once. Yet Idiots still pay to see her speak her nonsense.


  2. Miles……Thank you for your insight into what i have known since someone i knew died. These people need ‘outing’ as fakes and frauds. I would in fact pay to see someone do this to them. LOL


  3. I saw sally at skegness & I have to say, she wasn’t good at all. People were walking out of the theatre in disgust. A waste of money & time


  4. That woman who put in a pic of herself when she was younger & sally said I will leave it there of course she will say that as she aint getting a connection is she coz the woman was still alive…Which could have made sally think what is going on here…All you ever see is bad/negative feed back about sal wot about the 100 of thousands she has got right & gave people comfort from that reading?I have seen sal loads of times & will continue to do so she aint no fake i think she is brilliant & people i know keep going back to see her coz she is brilliant…..


    • And the reason she “appears” to get those right is that people she reads have allegedly been researched by her team before the show! Do your research and see for yourself. She has apparently also been caught wearing an earpiece on stage, despite denying it. I was disappointed to learn she maybe scamming people – we all want to believe in something. Unfortunately, that doesn’t make it real :(


  5. My sister and niece went to see SallyMorgan on 29th Feb and I have to say we were very disappointed in her ability to talk to the dead, she did not get much right at all. I think it’s about time she gave up and actually earnt her living…. I think she is a fake!


  6. Absolute FRAUD !!


  7. Sorry to say it but as someone who is genuinely psychic I know for a fact that people like her are frauds. The reason being that people like me have had psychic flashes if you like, most of our lives. we hate the word psychic, and see it as some sort of science that can’t be explained just yet.
    The trouble starts when we try to do it as a job. its not possible, the ‘signal is off’ most of the time, and only flashes on occasionally over the years. for someone like sally she probably had one psychic experience years ago and now says she is psychic. Being ‘psychic/science’ is something we all get sometimes. The phone will ring, you will know who it is. you think of a person you haven’t seen in years, then voila’ there they are and so on. pure science, telepathy for example. sorry to hear you had a bad experience. To be honest I am not sure that medium/talking to the dead, is real anyway. most of the info they get from you is either fraud or telepathy. the only way to double check is to find out something you didn’t know then go and check it! cheers, Nell Rose


  8. To anyone who thinks psychics can talk to the dead are stupid. Why do you not work it out people. We are all born psychic. That is like trying to put your right shoe on your left foot.
    Ando the twat that left his commitment above does not believe in his self.
    It is called a medium who can talk to the dead. And there are not many true mediums really.
    Clairvoyant is to see and give knowledge. So next time you want to see a show read about that person first. If you are disappointed be disappointed in your selves.

    I am clairvoyant I know there are allot of fakes out there. Your not clairvoyant and you are not a medium. Leave it up to those who are real.
    I am peter you want to know the truth . Leave a message

    i agree with the writer who says it should be about giving knowledge. positive thinking. last night at Nottingham. sally claimed a man died a lady stood up.from the photo. oh she said he is very disturbed because the dead man can feel a large slab over him. he cant feel his nose. I laughted. my sister who has been stressed out with losing our nicky was there for comfort. what a mess sally was. I too read people. but when people are vunable. they need a strong line of thought that means, something, not a piss take as I felt. The man had died abroad so discomfort was a horrid trick,,,,,i went on to read her sadley.bored and really folks needed there money back. to anyone looking for comfort. look to your children and feel each new day, feel that its part of our being to die.share in a positive thought that the memories they gave us are the only conection.that live on.THERE ARE THINGS IN LIFE THAT ARE UNEXPLAINEDABLE.
    SALLY is trickery.an expression reader. every face tells a story,carrying one shoulder lower than the other tells a sad story that that person carries a problem.i never met anyone who was so confused.as sally.theres one comfort to anyone with a loss. listen to them. think positive.and help them focus on what makes us happy, that word was never used all night.
