A magician who reached the final of Britain's Got Talent has pledged to perform in his home town.

James Samuel, 19, reached the final of the talent shop with friends Harry Nardi, 18, Theo Mallalieu, 17, and Josh Horus, 17, who make up the act 4MG.

The foursome - dubbed the boy band of magic - specialise in mind reading, magic, sleight-of-hand and illusion.

But while they wowed judges with their tricks, they lost out in the final to singer James Thackeray.

Now Mr Samuel, who lives in the town, has thanked fans on the Thetford Forum.
