Exclusive picture from Derren Brown: The Great Art Robbery

In this brand new episode, master illusionist and showman Derren Brown plans to pull off the perfect crime: He’s bet renowned art collector Ivan Massow, that he can steal a painting from right under his nose. In true Derren style, he will tell him exactly which painting he plans to target – a work by Turner-nominated British brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman no less – as well as what time the theft will happen. He’ll even give him a photograph of the person that’s going to take it.

In order to pull off the theft Derren recruits a crew. But he’s not going to use career criminals or skilled cat burglars. He’s going to use members of society that tend to slip by unnoticed. He’s going to use old age pensioners.

Over a series of uplifting tests and training missions viewers will see Derren teach his senior citizens the core skills needed to pull off the gallery theft: how to move together in perfect synchronicity and with perfect timing; how to deceive a security guard who will be expecting the theft to take place; and how to hold their nerve when they’re most under pressure. This builds to the edge-of-seat finale: the attempt of the team to steal the painting under impossible conditions.

This looks like it is going to be a brilliant show. I can’t wait! I get a feeling we will never look at the elder people of our society in the same way again :)

Jennie’s make-up in your photo is stunning. Wonderful.

James says:

Maybe you should hire me to guard it; no way could they get past me.

You need to step up your game, Derren.

He probably just gets one to have a fake heart attack, while the guard is focused on one person the others move in.

I’ve been waiting far longer than I care to admit for Derren’s next show on tv. I wasn’t able to make it to Infamous, so I’m really excited to see what his next show is.

Derren, you’re truly amazing.

I came to see the Infamous tour in Southampton (April 11). Derren is my biggest hero, and I found myself incredibly lucky enough to be up on stage with him. Derren was as genuine and charming as I'd always hoped (which proved a contrast to my nervous and shaky demeanour). He is a brilliant showman and an all-round pleasure to watch. The show was sensationally mind-blowing - I'll be sure that I never miss another. Thank you Derren, for everything that you do. Sorry I was so shaky! Grace

Really looking forward to tonight in Southaampton, bought tickets for husband, Terry's birthday. It's not today, it was in February.)

Derren Brown, For my daughter's birthday gift in November of 2013, I gave her a ticket to your show. For Christmas, I gave her a round trip ticket to London from Pensacola, Florida, our home. On my birthday, I flew from the Middle East, where I'm teaching English, to join her. On the 25th of March, you gave us your best. It was the highlight of our First English Spring Tour. No matter how far apart we are in the world or mindset, we both agree...we have no idea how you do it! And we like it that way.

I saw Derren at Leeds on 25th and I am still - 4 days on - utterly blown away by his incredible talent and incredible show! I have never ever had the pleasure of seeing him live before, but I will never miss an opportunity again. Someone as talented as Derren Brown is a MUST SEE. He's mesmerising, spellbinding, inspiring, jaw droppingly amazing. This experience is something I will take away with me forever and a day! Thank you SO much for bringing this show to Leeds! But goin forward, if travel roun te country to see you - you are THAT good :)
