THE nine-year-old magician and Britain’s Got Talent finalist joined us for a magical chat.
How did you first get interested in magic?
I had a Marvin’s Magic set, I loved Harry Potter and my grandpa showed me some tricks.
What was the first trick you learnt?
It was a loom band trick. I went to the fish and chip shop and had the bands on two fingers, then I took my fingers down and when I put them back up they were on the other two fingers. It only took me a few minutes to learn that one.
Who was your favourite judge on Britain’s Got Talent?
I don’t really like to say, but my favourite is David. He’s really funny.
What was the best thing about being on the show?
I think the best thing was all the people there – they were really funny and nice. All the judges were really nice, too – Simon Cowell is actually a lot nicer than he is on TV.
What’s a good first trick to try?
One of the easy tricks I did on YouTube was where I turn a Rubik’s Cube into Skittles. Or you could get a magic book from the library and try those.
What are you looking forward to about the Blackpool Magic Convention?
I like seeing magic tricks on stage and also I’m doing a new trick where I’m levitating!
Issy will be headlining the Blackpool Magic Convention on Friday 16 February.
