Wands, spells, Hogwarts - all words that spring to mind when someone mentions the word magic, but Jamie Raven didn’t need any extra props to prove that magic is real.

Last night a packed crowd filled the Corn Exchange in King’s Lynn to be tricked by the man that made Simon Cowell say he now finally believed in magic.

Jamie Raven burst onto our screens in 2015 when he came runner up in Britain’s Got Talent, losing out to dog act, Ashley and Pudsey.

Audience participation was a huge part throughout, with members able to send in a picture of themselves on Instagram and they could be chosen to take part.

The first half finale astounded as the audience was asked to perform a trick together involving envelopes given out as they walked into the theatre.

Audible gasps and exclamations of ‘what just happened?’ proved that even the most cynical of people left unsure if they had actually witnessed real magic.
