Fry appeared on several British TV shows, notably Most Haunted, one of the most influential shows in the “reality paranormal” genre. Fry died of lung cancer.
He was one of the rare physical mediums in the 1990s. That is, the “Spirit operators” use their psychic energy to produce manifestations such as noises, objects and “ectoplasm”. Such performances went out of vogue after many such mediums were exposed as frauds in late 1800s – early 1900s.
Fry’s “psychic” power was never substantiated (none have ever been) and soundly debunked. For thoughtful comments on this see this Bad Psychics post from April.
