October 12 2010: Tapping made a brief appearance recently on BBC comedy panel show ‘Would I Lie To You’.

He then proceeded to demonstrate tappipng on a couple of points on his fingers and hands.

However, sharp-eyed guest celebrity Trinny Woodsall from the opposing team, who evidently knows her tapping points, accused Michael of doing it properly at first, but then pretending to fluff the procedure in case he gave the game away! For that reason she believed he was telling the truth.

But both of Trinny’s co-panellists thought Michael was lying. In the denouement, Michael admitted he was being truthful.

The very notion of tapping had the audience in stitches, so it seems that EFT and tapping still have some way to go to win social recognition and acceptance, at least among game show audiences.
