A regular TV face, Ben appeared in his own ITV2 show ‘Tricked’ for three series as well as guest slots on Celebrity Juice, Live at The Palladium, The Apprentice and many more. He recently appeared on Sports Relief for BBC1 with a filmed piece backstage at the BBC’s Sport Personality of the Year showing magic to some of the UKs biggest sporting names included Anthony Joshua, Tom Daley, Torvil & Dean and Mark Foster. This year he appeared on three episodes of the BBC1 Saturday night show, “Wedding Day Winners” where he went undercover . He also hosts his own radio show on Capital FM and starred in the world’s best-selling touring show ‘The Illusionists’.

Ben hails from Birmingham and over the last ten years he has been performing his sleight of hand and stage magic on TV and at events all over the world. He became an overnight sensation with his incredible tricks as Magic Boy on YouTube that had over 1 million views! He used social media to “stalk” celebrities, doorstep them and perform magic. This crazy journey resulted in him performing tricks through Michael McIntyre’s car window, in David Hasselhoff’s dressing room and eventually led Ben to Hollywood to perform to Jamie Foxx, Quentin Tarantino and Mickey Rourke. This different approach to magic caught the attention of television executives… He has since performed tricks on celebrities that include Kim Kardashian, Sharon Osbourne and Gary Barlow!
