UPDATED: The husband of Colin Fry and his outrage at Psychics using Colin Fry's name after his death
There has been an updated to this article, please scroll to the bottom to read - Admin 01/08/17
It was recently brought to my attention that there are a number of self proclaimed psychic mediums around the world who are claiming that Colin Fry is their new spirit guide. Yes I know, it is ridiculous, but these "mediums" have seen an opportunity to promote themselves and their career by using the name of a more famous medium, who died a couple of years ago. And guess what, I have a problem with that.
I actually knew Colin Fry, and I spoke to him regularly, and although we clearly had huge differences, Colin did respect me, and even once told his own fans to stop abusing me, as they were sending me all sorts of threats etc, Colin publicly stated that I was the only skeptic in the world that he was happy to talk to.
Now before he died I spoke with him in depth, and I asked him many questions, one was if after he died he could haunt me. He told me no. I also asked him if he would ever speak through any mediums after he had crossed over. He said that if he did it would only be through someone he was very close with, and only if his husband Mikey was the person there, he also shared his fears that he knew that after his death that his name would be used by fraudulent mediums as a way to self promote, and that sadly there was nothing he could do to stop it.
Well here we are a few years later, and exactly what he predicted has come true! (Damn how did he know?)
So I am here to call out specifically two people, and also anyone else who has made this claim.
First is a medium called Christine Snowdon
She claimed in an issue of "Spirit & Destiny Magazine" that Colin's death was a turning point in her career and that he was now her spirit guide.
I decided to speak to the one person who knew Colin Fry better than anyone, that being his husband, Mikey Fry. I asked him straight how he felt when he heard of Colin's name being used in this way by Christine Snowdon, he told me...
"First of all shame on Spirit & Destiny Magazine for allowing this claim to be published without any proof, or even consulting me Christine Snowdon is just a wannabe,using a dead man as a way to self promote and get her name out there, she is a leech. I am incredibly offended and I am looking into the legalities of the claim, and I will take action if it is possible to do so"
I think that is pretty clear.
The next self proclaimed psychic medium that I have heard making the exact same claim, that Colin Fry is their spirit guide is a medium by the name of Tara Coyle
Tara Coyle for those who have never heard of her (and I expect that is most of you) is your classic "hanger on", in more recent times she has desperately stuck to Derek Acorah, and managed to get on tour with him. But one look at her facebook page, and you see lots of photos of her with Colin Fry. So if you believe in the idea of a spirit guide (however ridiculous that may be) perhaps she has a stronger claim. So I put it to Colin's husband Mikey, and asked him if he had heard of Tara Coyle making this claim.
He told me...
"I heard that Tara Coyle had made the claim that Colin Fry was her spirit guide during a seminar in Ireland, I do not believe her for a moment. I am disgusted by her claim, and my only interest now is to expose her. I want to make this very very clear Colin Fry is NOT a spirit guide of Tara Coyle, or any other medium for that matter.
Both Tara Coyle and Christine Snowdon are using my late partner to perpetuate their lie and fraud and I intend to expose these parasites fully to the public for this so that they will no longer profit from Colin's name.
I personally have no interest in financial gain from any of this, I just want them to stop using my Colin for their careers, it is not want I want as his husband, and it damn sure is not what he would want either.
I might end up losing some friends over this, but people claiming Colin is their spirit guide is just wrong, I have had enough of this, and am going to take action.
This feels like a desecration of Colin, a violation of his soul and my memories of him, I just want it to stop...."
That was the end of my conversation with Mikey, clearly his loss is still affecting him greatly.
So where does that leave us. Well I have to be fair to everyone. We have two separate people making claims, that Colin Fry is their spirit guide, so I challenge both Tara Coyle and Christine Snowdon to prove it. If Colin Fry is really their spirit guide, then it is really easy, during my conversations with Colin before his death, we spoke about a member of my family, someone who had been deceased. No one outside of myself and Colin know who this conversation was about. So I challenge Tara Coyle and Christine Snowdon to tell me who this family member was. If you are telling the truth, then it should be easy, if you are lying, well you will stay silent.
Mikey Fry is calling you both liars, and I am calling you both liars. Prove you are telling the truth and I will delete this article, and replace it with a full page article promoting you. I think that sounds fair.
Are you a fake? Are you a fraud? Lets find out the truth.
I look forward to hearing from you both, I am easy to find, just click on the Contact page on this site for details.

After reading this article Tara Coyle contacted Mikey Fry directly and offered a full apology. She has claimed that this was a misunderstanding and that she only referred to Colin "in a third party light" as a friend, and that she does not claim that he is her spirit guide and she is very sorry for any confusion that may have occured.
Since we have no footage of her making the claim that Colin was her spirit guide, I am prepared to take this apology at face value, and accept her explanation that this was a misunderstanding. Tara has agreed not to talk about Colin Fry in her shows, and not to use his name as part of her act.
If you have heard Tara make the claim that Colin was her spirit guide please let me know, and if you hear her using Colin as part of her act also please let me know.
A message from BadPsychics to Tara Coyle. It is our opinion that you do NOT communicate with the dead, and that you never have, what you do is an act, an act we can and will expose. And as long as you continue to make claims that you can communicate with the dead, and then take money from vulnerable, grieving people, then you will remain a person of interest for us.

After publishing the previous 22/07/17 update, we were contacted by numerous people who claimed that Tara Coyle had indeed claimed that Colin Fry was her spirit guide at a charity event in Keady and the TMAC centre in late June early July. So it seems that the original claims that were made against her have more weight now. With that said she has agree not to use Colin's name going forward and has already apologised to Mikey, however because she seemingly lied, I know that Mikey is very upset, and he is looking into his options.
It really does seem that these fake mediums really do have no depths they wont sink to try and convince a gullible and vulnerable audience that they are legit. Unluckily for them BadPsychics is always watching.
