Uri Geller on reputations and intelligence agency work

The TV paranormal expert known for bending spoons has spoken of "making and moulding" his own reputation which was "shrouded in controversy".

Uri Geller spoke about the power of reputation, and the PR move of JK Rowling who penned a novel under another name.

Mr Geller said he was "never really taken seriously", but added how he had worked for intelligence agencies around the world, ahead of Sunday's BBC documentary The Secret Life of Uri Geller.

He was talking to Andrew Neil, Alan Johnson and Michael Portillo about the reputation of politicians and how they can change over time.
