Magician Keith Barry has dished the dirt on his new TV3 show ‘You’re Back In The Room’, and revealed his personal choice for the most hilarious moment of the series.

World-renowned mentalist Keith Barry is up to his old tricks alongside Phillip Schofield in the brand new Saturday night entertainment show ‘You’re Back In The Room’.

The primetime game show sees Keith team up with Philip to wreak havoc with hilarious results. Every week five strangers will work together to complete incredibly simple challenges… but there’s just one catch; they will all be under Keith’s hypnotic spell, ensuring plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.

Phillip will be on hand as the contestants play four rounds, each worth an increasing amount for their cash pot. The more they accumulate the more chance they have to each walk away with a substantial amount of money in the final End Game.

How well the contestants overcome their hypnotic hindrances, will determine what cash prize they will walk away with.

And there is one moment in particular that sticks out in Keith’s mind as being the funniest of the series: “It was when I convinced contestants they were on ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!’. I hypnotised a guy into thinking Maltesers were bulls’ testicles. He had to eat the Maltesers to win the money. Since he really believed they were testicles he was gagging and disgusted as he tried to eat them! In the same episode I convinced someone who had a phobia of snakes that the snakes were her favourite celebrities - the transition in her face was astonishing, even to me!”
