I just caught part of Episode Six of Season Three of Psychic Sally On The Road on Pick TV and watched in bemusement at a scene in which Sally berates her husband John Morgan for not being politically correct, for not holding his tongue and getting in trouble because of it. What follows is the transcript of said discussion…
Sally Morgan: two days ago John reacted to a situation in a theatre and John over-reacted and kicked off basically. John wouldn’t hurt a fly – I know that… but there are people that don’t know that… and he can turn around, he can be really rude! It’s like, oh my god, shut up! You’re like an old terrier John, like an old Jack Russell-
John Morgan: -but you don’t see what goes on in the front, all that rubbish about that “I was going to be evicted from the theatre” was a load of old tosh.
V/O: TODAY THEY’RE OFF TO SOUTHPORT BUT SALLY STILL WON’T FORGIVE JOHN
Sally Morgan: …and even though he is my husband… it doesn’t give anyone the right to do… to be rude to anyone. I won’t have it because I’m not rude to anyone, and I treat people how I want to be treated.
Daren Wiltshear: I agree BUT we kinda get talked down to by everyone – they don’t realise who John is.
John Morgan: Daren kinda proved my point…
Sally Morgan: BUT what I’m saying to you love is that you’ve gotta be more politically correct, you’ve got to hold your tongue. Daren’s here to take all the stress off of you, you don’t have to do anything. Let Daren get into trouble, I don’t want you getting into trouble.
John Morgan: I’m not in trouble
Sally Morgan: you were in trouble…
John Morgan: I’m not, it’s all over inflated…
John Morgan and Daren Wiltshear were both recently fired by Sally Morgan Enterprises after they were caught on film threatening and being verbally abusive to a member of the public outside a venue at which the self-proclaimed psychic was due to perform.
In a statement issued to the Sally Morgan website on October 10th the behaviour was described as ‘out of character’ after John Morgan and Daren Wiltshear became angry at Mark Tilbrook because of his presence at the venue. This attempt to justify the behaviour in the footage didn’t wash with a lot of people and three days later on October 13th a second statement was issued that stated Sally Morgan Enterprises had fired both John Morgan and Daren Wiltshear and Sally herself is quoted
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”.
Although it is unfair to hold Sally Morgan herself accountable for the behaviour of her husband and son-in-law who are two adults capable of independent thought, what I’ve just watched really does call into question whether the behaviour of John Morgan and Daren Wiltshear is as out of character as has been suggested. Hmm..
