Watch your back, Psychic Sally. The One Show presenter Alex Jones might be coming for your job!
Jones surprisingly showed off her mind-reading powers during Friday's (August 14) edition of the BBC One chatshow in a segment that she swears was not pre-arranged! (You make up your own mind on that one.)
Long-time viewers know that magic tricks are risky territory on The One Show, but this time, Alex actually managed to impress top TV mentalist and illusionist Derren Brown.
The presenter was out to prove her own budding psychic powers by having fellow guest Nicola Roberts secretly draw something related to Girls Aloud, before Alex would attempt to recreate it with no hints.
"I'm going to try and draw what's in that envelope," Alex explained. "I just need you to transmit that to me image via your mind! And I will attempt to draw it."
"If you actually get this right, I'm leaving," Nicola jokingly vowed.
But with Derren watching on via video link, Alex was able to successfully recreate Nicola's drawing of Girls Aloud — well, Girls Aloud if they looked like crude stick figures. But, still!
"No way," both Nicola and guest presenter Chris Ramsey blurted out as Alex happily bopped along to Girls Aloud's 'The Promise'.
Even Derren himself was properly impressed by the trick, quipping: "I think 20 years is a good point to resign! I'm done."
"I'm so chuffed. I'm going to moving onto big stunts very shortly," Alex cheekily promised.
All hail the new Queen of Psychics, Alex Jones!
The One Show continues Mondays through Fridays at 7pm on BBC One… with Alex hopefully starting to read guests' minds to figure out if they're telling the truth.
