A self-professed psychic who claims to have predicted the coronavirus pandemic has offered up his mystical predictions for the year ahead.
Nicolas Aujula, from London, said in 2018 that an 'influenza' disaster would cripple the planet; he reckons that prophecy is what we're living through now.
The 35-year-old also claims that he foresaw global protests and an election defeat for Donald Trump.
So, what does the horizon-gazer foresee for 2021?
Nicholas - a 'past life regression therapist, hypnotherapist and psychic astrologer' - said: "Some of my visions are very literal. Others are more symbolic and open to interpretation, almost like a dream with a hidden message.
"One thing people have asked me about a lot this year is the coronavirus. I have visions of it plateauing after the new year and infection rates being right down to the point where they are under control by the spring.
"But, I predict that the panic and restrictions around the virus will go on until 2022."
I mean, I totally understand if you don't wanna take Nicolas' word for it, but his prediction isn't too dissimilar to that of Sir John Bell, a member of the government's Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE).
So now we've got leading scientists and psychic astrologers forecasting a brighter year ahead.
Sir John Bell, a member of Sage and sits on government's vaccine task force, says life could return to normal by the spring.

Nicolas first became aware of his 'psychic talents' as a child, but had his first truly overwhelming experience when he was 17.
He said: "I had this almost out-of-body experience and I was able to see several of my past lives.
"There's no logic to it, but I knew what I was seeing was me in a previous life.
"I've had thousands of past lives. I've been an Egyptian queen, a maid, a teacher in the French Revolution, a deer, a lion and even lived in another galaxy."
You think that's interesting? That's nothing - I was once a French deer in another galaxy.
However, Nicolas has nurtured his superhuman skills since his adolescence and has been particularly prophetic in recent years.
He said: "Back in 2018, the word influenza kept coming to me. It stuck in my mind, as it's not a word I'd use. If I was talking in everyday life, I would just say flu.
"I saw it as a global disaster, linked to meat or livestock. The Covid-19 pandemic has been compared to the Spanish flu outbreak, hence the word influenza, and some people think it originated at a wildlife market in Wuhan, China.
"I also envisioned the defeat of Donald Trump. The US election was obviously very neck-and-neck, so it was surreal seeing my vision come true when Joe Biden finally took the lead."
He continued: "The image of protests that I saw is one that has now become very important, as all over the world this year, people have been taking to the streets, standing up and raising their voices.
"One other thing I saw before 2020 was a hospital in flames. At the time, I thought it'd mean a literal fire - but now I think it might've been symbolic of the way the NHS, and health services around the world, were pushed to the edge by the virus.
"Similarly, I had a vision of World War Three, but perhaps that wasn't a war between countries, but instead a war against Covid-19."
But it's all well and good saying you predicted things after they happened - what about next year?
Nicolas said: "I'm seeing people moving somewhere for a better life, almost like a mass exodus. I'm not talking a few hundred - I mean thousands.
"I keep getting the words 'Tom Cruise' and 'heart' coming to me. Maybe that's literal and he'll be poorly with a heart problem, or maybe it's metaphorical and he'll go through a break-up or something.
"I'm also seeing romantic heartache for Natalie Portman and Kim Kardashian. Who knows, maybe she will split with Kanye West?"
Nicolas also has visions of Peter Andre relaunching his career, a new Harry Potter book, and a digestive biscuit going viral for reasons that are, as of yet, unclear to him.
So you heard it here first folks: Harry Potter and the Viral Digestive, starring Peter Andre. Coming cinemas 2021.
And you thought 2020 was bad.
