When someone chose to send abusive tweets to Derren Brown in the early hours of this morning, we bet he wasn’t expecting this kind of response.

Derren Brown reacts perfectly to homophobic Twitter abuser

The British illusionist received several tweets today attacking his sexuality, but his response to these was absolutley beautiful.

Brown, who revealed in 2007 that he was gay, has been very open about his sexuality.

In a 2011 interview with Radio Times, the Trick of the Mind host said he was 'blissfully happy' to be in a relationship.

"I spent a lot of time thinking about me and working on what I wanted to be before I came into a relationship. In some ways, it's bad because you come into relationship quite late without a lot of experience and you have a lot to learn.

"But that can also be exciting. Certainly, it's lovely to have somebody love you and it's lovely to love someone else."

Brown is no stranger to people challenging him on his homosexuality.

In March of this year, in an interview with Alan Carr he talked about his Christian upbringing and how the church tried to cure him of his homosexuality.

Fair play sir, but any chance of next week's lotto numbers?
