Spoon-bending pioneer Uri Geller has taken on the skills of BBC presenter Maryam Moshiri after she went viral following a segment where a man disfigured a frying pan - and it led on to her displaying her own skills on some BBC canteen cutlery.

Maryam, who previously wowed audiences with her super moon demonstration and accidental middle finger-giving, impressed viewers with her strength following a news report about England’s strongest man taking on a frying pan with his bare hands. 

Viewers watched in awe as The World Today presenter showed off her own cutlery-bending powers and bent a BBC canteen spoon after the interview with the BBC Radio Oxford guest.

Social media erupted while watching her superhuman skills. One user wrote: "@BBCMaryam bend her spoon, but BROKE The spoon! Watch this amazing moment here."

The host wrote on X: "The spoon broke!!!"

She replied to Geller's post and assured him he is, in fact, the only legitimate spoon-bender around. She wrote: "Of course you are@theurigeller! I am but a mere pretender with strong hands."

Fans reacted: "Einstein did space bending, Maryam does spoon bending."

She replied: "Got to start somewhere? Physics not my subject tbh."

"Sad news to report that 1 spoon was hurt in this broadcast," joked a viewer.

Maryam responded: "I'll bring one from my house tomorrow to replace it, don’t worry!"
