Shamed TV Psychic, Sally Morgan, today sacked her husband and son-in-law after they were embroiled in a homophobic row with a sceptic.

As reported in KaleidoScot over the weekend, psychic doubter Mark Tilbrook was involved in an ‘altercation’ between Sally’s husband, John Morgan, and son-in-law Daren Wiltshear. In the clip, Mr Morgan warns: “One day you’re going to be lifted, and you’ll disappear somewhere. You’re a poof as well, we know all about your life.”

Her website describes John Morgan as her former Personal Manager, and Daren Wiltshear as her former Tour Manager. The pair were caught shouting threatening anti-gay slurs at the protester outside one of the popular psychic’s shows earlier in 2014.

The video has received over 100,000 views on YouTube in what is a highly embarrassing episode for Ms Morgan.

In a statement on her website today, Ms Morgan stated:  “I have come from a family background that has always been very accepting, many of my friends are gay and I have always felt happy that I am often referred to as a gay icon through my work. I am utterly ashamed and devastated at the behaviour of my husband John and Son in Law Daren and neither of them will have anything to do with my work, my business and right now I honestly have no idea what is going to happen to my marriage”.

Today, the episode brought further condemnation, this time from Cathy Jamieson, MP for Kilmarnock, where Sally is due to play at The Grand Hall.  The Shadow Finance Secretary to the Treasury, told KaleidoScot:

“The intimidation, homophobic abuse and threats of physical violence shown in this video are utterly abhorrent and completely unacceptable. Behaviour of the sort exhibited in the video cannot and will not be tolerated – either in my constituency or anywhere else.”

The Kilmarnock venue is operated by East Ayrshire Leisure, who told us, “EAL do not condone the language used by the representative in this video”, adding they are contacting show producers, Sally Morgan Enterprises, for “comment and appropriate action”.

On Saturday, Perth MSP Roseanna Cunningham, warned Mr Morgan that a repeat of the behaviour in the video would not be tolerated at the Perth Concert Hall where ‘Psychic Sally’ is also due to appear soon.  Horsecross Arts, who operate the Perth venue, have confirmed to KaleidoScot they are also contacting the production company to request a full explanation of the incident.

  1. Sacked? What a load of balls. They have been caught and he has been exposed for his disgusting views and should make a substantial donation to a LGBT organisation maybe Kaleidoscot?
