Watching The Box

by | 4th, September 2003

‘AS if Big Brother wasn’t boring enough, we hear today that Sky One is planning to broadcast David Blaine’s 44 days in a glass box over the River Thames…LIVE.

David’s favourite trick was conjuring up a second Manon

And Channel 4 will screen highlights of the six-week stunt in which the magicians will, er, sit in a box suspended from London Bridge.

What viewers expect to see is anyone’s guess, but one thing they won’t see is sex.

This morning, Blaine tells the Star that being apart from current lover, model Manon von Gerkan, will be the hardest part of the stunt.

‘I assume I will start losing my mind a couple of weeks into it,’ he says, ‘but the absence of girls will be the hardest part.’

With nothing else to do for six weeks, perhaps Blaine should take a copy of today’s Mirror into his box with him.

In it, he can read Part Two of the paper’s Sex Tips guide, in which a lesbian tells straight men how to become the perfect lover.

Lesson One: Sex is not just about your penis and dungarees are this year’s must-have item in the bedroom.’
