The daughter of a gangster, who was raised on a council estate, Donna Fallon was a housewife and mother-of-three when she discovered her psychic powers at the age of 40.

She was informed she had the gift by a medium while being given a reading of her own, and immediately began developing it.

Since then, Fallon has built up a trusted client base and is highly regarded for her talent in helping people connect from this world to the next, giving guidance and messages from the spirit world.

Fallon says: “Until the age of 40 I was not qualified at anything and I couldn’t even drive a car.”

However, since developing her powers, she has found herself in demand.

Celebrity clients include reality television stars Amy Childs, Gemma Collins and Sam and Billie Faiers, from The Only Way is Essex, and Amanda Harrington and Debbie O’Toole, from Desperate Scousewives.

Next week, you can find out what the celebrities love about her when she brings her psychic show to Croydon.
