A TV psychic has been hit with a £100,000 court bill after lying about losing his powers in a car crash.
Maurice Amdur, 56, sued for £250,000 compensation.
He said the prang stripped him of the vital concentration needed to read for clients.
He also claimed his injuries left him impotent and cost him his then girlfriend.
But Judge Elizabeth Backhouse threw out his claim he could not work as a psychic reader for two years after his accident, saying it had been undermined by “fundamental dishonesty”.
The judge would have awarded him £10,454 for his injuries but dismissed the claim as a punitive step.
Mr Amdur, who denied all claims of dishonesty, must now pick up the estimated £100,000 legal costs of the case at Central London county court.
He was in a rare £80,000 Jaguar XKS convertible when it was hit from behind by another car in January 2015.
