“Colin brought a lot of comfort to his audiences in a career which spanned for more than 30 years. Our sympathies and condolences go out to Colin’s family and friends.”
“We, as his management, for many years would like to add that he was the most charming man with the biggest heart, who devoted his life to helping others, and he will be sorely missed.”

Colin Fry (19 May 1962 – 25 August 2015) was an English television personality and self-proclaimed medium.
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.IMAGE/twitter
