'Mentalist' Stuns Piers Morgan By Guessing His Pin Number On 'Good Morning Britain'

'Mentalist' Lior Suchard shocked Good Morning Britain presenters Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan today with some mysterious trickery.

The self-proclaimed 'mystifier' was appearing on the show when he boggled the minds of Morgan and Reid with his ability to guess the inner workings of their brains.

The inside of Piers Morgan's brain seems like a very dangerous place to explore, but there you go.

Suchard asked Morgan to count to ten before successfully telling him the first two digits of his pin number. A ruffled Morgan appeared shocked to have his pin number revealed on air. Fortunately for the sometime paper editor and presidential interviewer, Suchard showed him the remaining numbers on a notepad.

"When people think of something they use subliminal messaging and nonverbal communication," Suchard said.

As for Morgan, he said "I want him detained, I don't want him anywhere near my PIN code. We need him arrested and removed in chains."

The 52-year-old was presumably joking, because Piers Morgan likes jokes.

Reid was also victim to Suchard's clairvoyant magic. He successfully guessed that she was thinking about her cat (which is terribly fluffy, in fairness) and had posted a picture of a cat on Instagram an hour before, fully confident that this would be what Reid was thinking about.

Reid was visibly surprised by the Suchard's guesswork, though unlike Piers she didn't find herself in danger of having millions of pounds stolen from her account. That said, you can't put a price on an adorable kitten.

Suchard had earlier written: "Susanna will think of me on GMB," when posting the picture of the cat, which adds further mystery as to how he managed to read her thought processes. In the case of Morgan, at least, the two were in the same room when he figured out the 52-year-old's pin number (which he selfishly didn't share, I might add).

Pin numbers and cats aside, Suchard has had a fairly interesting career. After three years in the Israeli air force he appeared on Uri Geller's TV show and soon gained international fame.

He's since appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Larry King Now and The Late Late show with James Corden, where he scared Harry Connick Jr. so much that the actor left the stage twice.
