Singer and former occultist Shane Lynch has dubbed the Harry Potter novels and films "evil".
During his heyday with Irish boyband Boyzone, Lynch experimented with the occult, and was so shocked with what he found, he is now a born-again Christian.
Lynch says, "I was heavily involved in it and it's got a demonic side."It was destructive. I was into Ouija boards, tarot cards, seances and worse. I was in a really bad place.
"Take Harry Potter. It's still witchcraft and I would explain it to my kids that witchery is evil. There's nothing fairytale about it.
"I was anti-God when I was involved in the demonic side of things.
"But now I love where God has taken me."
