Sorry Derren, but this just a cruddy variation on the sealed envelope trick.

Not good enough.

I don't watch much Derren Brown but I presume that was a camera trick.

It has to be something to do with the balls being swapped etc otherwise he would have had no problems in turning them round BEFORE the draw

If he knew, he would be a billlllllionare.

Magic tricks are so lame when it is explained how they did it, it's scary how crap these cons are on TV, you just feel cheated they are so poor.

Would his balls be blank and perhaps when he was writing the numbers down on that pad somehow they were also being written on the row of balls

Indeed, the camera wobble was suspicious. A split screen while somebody went and put the winning balls on the stand I guess.

Did anyone bother to flick channels to check it?

As to how it was done.. why couldn't they turn the TV on till a certain time.... Note the wording, the BBC has the rights to first broadcast of the lottery numbers.

We'll all watch on Friday to find out. I love Derren Brown, I don't care if his tricks are cons, he's such a bloody good showman.
