modern love story

Celebrity hypnotist Paul McKenna chose his fiancée because of an Excel spreadsheet

The story is baffling some people.

WE’VE HEARD SOME interesting celebrity love stories in our time, but hypnotist Paul McKenna’s tale is quite an unusual one.

The big-name hypnotherapist told The Observer and the Sunday Times about falling in love with his assistant of 20 years, Kate Davey, and put it all down to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

“My life was about dating pretty girls and showing everyone I can enjoy the pleasures of dating a pretty girl,” he told the Sunday Times. But a friend “noticed that I was dating all these pretty girls, but that I didn’t necessarily like them”.
