Celebrities Are The Trickiest
Wow it’s been a busy week! The last few days have been entirely dedicated to getting the illusions ready for tomorrow and next week’s show. Trust me, they are BIG tricks that require an awful lot of work. This week Dougie from McFly will be plunging himself into ‘The Mangle’, a devious little contraption that does exactly what it says on the tin, it mangles up the volunteer’s body before making them...well, I won’t ruin what happens next. Rest assured when I say it’s a rather spectacular trick that is very hard to get right.
So, that’s what the last week has been - nonstop rehearsal, trial and error, and perfecting every aspect of each illusion. The trouble is, when you’re working with celebrities as opposed to trained assistants who you’ve toured with for months and months, you never know what’s going to happen. You only get about an hour’s rehearsal with them on the day, meaning there’s an awful lot of risk involved.
One thing’s for sure, it means for an exciting night!
Until next week,
Watch Magic Numbers, Saturday night from 7:50pm on ITV1
