A woman who claims to be able to tell the future using asparagus has made her predictions for 2019.
So-called ‘asparamancer’ and TV celebrity, Jemima Packington throws asparagus spears into the air and interprets how they land to fuel her forecasts
In the past, she has correctly predicted Brexit, Trump’s presidential win and Macron’s election success in France.
Her stint on Big Brother saw her making accurate forecasts regarding those leaving the Channel 4 house.
So, what does Jemima think 2019 holds for everyone?
Fears over Brexit will prove ‘largely unfounded’
The Trade War between China and the US will end but there will be a recession in the US that will affect us all
England’s women’s football team will win the World Cup in France in 2019
Big Brother will return to our screens, despite Channel 5 declaring the winter 2018 series to be the last
Extremes of temperature become the norm
Oscar success for A Star is Born, but British actors will also be in the mix
More well-known British businesses will fold
England’s cricketers and rugby team will have success early in the new year driving other British sports’ people to aim high
Asparagus will see an all-time high in sales
Speaking previously to the Mirror, Jemima said: "I take what I do seriously but I never take myself seriously.
"When I cast the asparagus, it creates patterns and it is the patterns I interpret."
Jemima, from Evesham, Worcs. but who now lives in Bath, picks a handful of tips, tosses them into the air and "reads" the shapes they form when they land.
She began making predictions aged about eight – something she says she inherited from her great aunt who used to read tea leaves.
For 2017 Jemima correctly predicted that ‘national treasure’ couple Jamie and Louis Redknapp would divorce and said despite doing well England would not win the World Cup in 2018.
However, not all of her predictions are on the money.
She predicted that Theresa May would be ousted as Prime Minister in 2018 and although coming close, the PM remains in place for now.
Jemima said: "I am usually about 80-90 per cent accurate with my predictions.
"I go through my predictions each year and think: ‘Yep, that’s happened, yep, that’s happened’.
"Occasionally I get one slightly off, where I haven’t quite read it correctly, but I’m never far off."
Jemima is a regular at the Vale of Evesham’s British Asparagus Festival which runs from April 23 until June 21 every year and features weird and wonderful attractions as well as the famous Great British Asparagus Run.
This year Jemima used Vale of Evesham asparagus spears to make her predictions.
