Dynamo at London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2014 -

Fave.. TV Show?

I love BBC2's Peaky Blinders with Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy. It's just good to see a really well-made British gangster show.

Time of day?

Between the hours of 8pm and 1am, because that's when I go home and see my dog Bessie - and my wife! I like watching films, and my favourite is Back To The Future. Those hours are my 'me' time.


Linkin Park's Reanimation. Some of the most amazing producers feature on there and I think it's just a really underrated album.


It has to be my nanna's corned beef hash in a massive Yorkshire pudding. But it has to be hers, no one else's matches up!

Illusion to perform?

It changes every week but if I had to pick one, it would have to be turning pieces of paper into money - for obvious reasons!

I would have to say when my wife Kelly said, 'I do'.


My Michael Jackson hat - he wore it on his 1992 Dangerous tour.

Career highlight?

The premiere of the film The Pursuit Of Happyness. I was there to receive an award from Will Smith, and before I did I performed a trick where I pull a polo mint from my neck. Will was supposed to give our awards and then talk about the film, but instead he spent seven minutes talking about magic and referencing my performance. I was really humbled by that.


I'm a big fan of Russell Brand but one to really look out for is David Gersch. He's an amazing raw talent who I've seen go from small gigs to big shows - I think he'll be huge.


Samuel L Jackson. He tweeted me and I couldn't believe such a huge star had heard of me. Then for him to want to be on my show was crazy. I remember seeing him at an event, thinking he wouldn't remember me, and he ran up shouting,'Why is it the last series, why are you doing this to me, man?!'

Dynamo's Magician Impossible: The Complete Final Series is out on DVD.
