    Viewers tuned in to Channel 4's Derren Brown: 20 Years of Mind Control on Sunday night, which looked at some of Derren's most impressive tricks over the years.

Paid actor just like the rest," while another added: "Never noticed the guy who was the assassin is the guy who was hypnotised to sit in the ice bath, terrific actor." Are you a fan of Derren?However, viewers were quickly corrected by fellow fans, with one writing: "The ice bath scene was part of the process to be chosen as the one to perform the assassination." In reply, one relieved viewer wrote: "Thanks for clearing that up, I'd made the same mistake!
