Colin Fry has hosted a number of television programmes dealing with the supernatural, including Most Haunted, Psychic Private Eyes and 6ixth Sense with Colin Fry, produced by Living TV. The nature of the presented entertainment has numerous critics who assert that he has no paranormal powers and merely uses basic cold reading techniques. Psychic Private Eyes on the Zone Reality channel co-stars fellow psychics Tracy Higgs and Tony Stockwell and purports to conduct "real life psychic investigations into baffling murders and disappearances".
Fry, who at one time performed under the stage name of "Lincoln", was, according to those who strongly believe the paranormal does not exist, exposed in 1992 when, they say, during a séance the lights were unexpectedly turned on and he was seen holding a spirit trumpet in the air, which the audience had been led to believe was being levitated by spiritual energy. However, there is no evidence for this claim.
