    Oh Eurotrash, how we have missed you.

    Yes, you read that headline right.

    To coincide with the EU Referendum next Thursday, Eurotrash returned with a one-off special and introduced Paco Porras, a guy who claims he can predict the future purely by smelling and examining vegetables.

    "Certain fruit and vegetables contain their own sort of mystic energy. Their inner juices flow with psychic power", he explained on the programme.

    Here is Porras, surrounded by presenters Antoine de Caunes and Jean-Paul Gaultier, dressed as green beans and a carrot, respectively.

    He then chose a cauliflower from a basket.

    The mood was exceptionally tense.

    He then held it on his chin after wiping it with small flags of the European Union and the United Kingdom.

    Then he smelled the cauliflower like this.

    He predicted "IN!"

    WARNING: Vegetables aren't always accurate in predicting the future. A guest on This Morning in February claimed to predict the future by tossing asparagus onto a flat surface.

    Jemima Packington was asked to throw some asparagus to predict who was going to win this year's Oscars.

    She claimed that Mad Max or The Martian was going to win Best Picture because the asparagus fell into an M shape on the table.

    She was wrong. Spotlight won.

    HOWEVER, when asked to throw some more asparagus to predict whether This Morning was going to win at the National Television Awards, she said they were and that a strand of asparagus landing on the floor would mean that "somebody would have a really jolly time celebrating".

    She was 100% right, as not only did they win, the next day the presenters of This Morning presented hungover still wearing the previous day's clothes.

    I love British television so damn much.
