In a Derren Brown-esque stunt, Chris Hughes says he will cast a spell over the internet and set a world record in the process for the world's largest mass online hypnosis session.

Mr Hughes, 34, will be attempting to stick his followers' hands together, and leave them unable to open their eyes, purely through the sound of his voice.

Hypnosis fans from all over the world have signed up to the online event, which will be happening on January 4 at 8.30pm.

The event, called Socialtrance, will coincide with World Hypnotism Day, and is expected to make it into the Guinness World Records.

"This is the first attempt of its kind to hypnotise people via social networking sites," Mr Hughes said.

"I truly believe that everyone can be hypnotised, and people shouldn't be afraid of it.

"Within a minute of starting the session those listening to me won't be able to see anything, as they'll be put into a deep trance by my voice.

"Social networking sites are a great way to interact with people and I'm hoping that this will open people's eyes to the power of hypnotism.

"It's all about the power of suggestion, and the affect it can have on the unconscious."

He added that there will be a question and answer session at the beginning to answer any sceptics.

Anyone 18 or over can take part in the event with the exception of those who are pregnant, have a mental illness, are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or have been diagnosed with a psychotic illness.

Epileptics are advised to seek advice from their doctor before taking part in the hypnosis webcast.

The session will be purely auditory, and followers will not be able to see the hypnotherapist, who is based in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

Facebook and Twitter followers are being told they will only need headphones and a comfy chair to take part in the social experiment.

The session will contain positive suggestions for change and Chris claims that it will benefit everyone taking part. Those curious can sign up to the event at www.Socialtrance.com.
