Fay Weldon reveals her 'psychic' insights

10th May 2010

English author Fay Weldon has claimed that she has a form of extra-sensory perception.

Appearing on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs show, Weldon, who has written a number of best-selling books including She May Not Leave and The Spa Decameron, said she had acquired a 'degree of second sight' when she was a child.

Claiming she was able to see ghosts or figures standing around her bed when she was young, Weldon believed that such perceptive ability was relatively common amongst children.

Weldon also claimed to have predicted when she would meet her second husband Ron.

She added that her psychic insight means she often knows people better than they know themselves.

'It can be quite uncomfortable actually because you know what they're thinking. Writers on the whole tend to have a degree of empathy that not everybody has,' she added.

Weldon, a confirmed Catholic, has also written recently about how she perceives religion and its function in society. She told the Guardian that people want to believe in God, their country and their history, as all three can be a great source of pride.
