Mind-reading entertainment.

MAGIC act DNA, which wowed ITV's Britain's Got Talent programme, is to be the after dinner entertainment at the Insider Scottish Accountancy and Finance Awards 2018.

The mind reading duo Darren and Andrew will bring their intriguing and fascinating act to the Awards evening.

The act is based on an apparent telepathic ability which they call 'The Gift' which allows the pair to read minds. Volunteers are asked to write down facts such as names and numbers that should be known only to them. The pair then sensationally reveals the secret facts. On the hit TV programme the pair revealed three secret facts written down on a piece of paper by Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell.

Cowell who looked amazed at the revealed numbers said: "What you do, honestly, is incredible."

The pair also changed their shirts during the TV programme without anyone noticing despite them being on stage all the time.

David Walliams, Cowell's fellow judge on the programme said: "It was incredible. The way your minds work is extraordinary."

DNA themselves say they "combine intuitive psychoanalysis with a unique ability of telepathic thought transference".

Andrew Murray of DNA said: "We are thrilled to come up to Glasgow for the Scottish Accountancy and Finance Awards later this year. Glasgow is one of our favourite cities and we are honoured to be involved."

Those attending the dinner will be able to experience for themselves an act that has wowed TV viewers and audiences all over the country.

The glittering awards ceremony will take place at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow on 14 June.
