Matt Ed­wards

com­edy ma­gi­cian

TV Times - - Live Special -

Matt, 34, from Suf­folk, has been per­form­ing since he was five, af­ter his dad bought him a magic trick from a shop in London’s Covent Gar­den, and hopes to open his own magic school one day. He won over the judges with a salt-themed trick to the tune of The Champs’ Tequila. Ant says: ‘I was laugh­ing so much I thought I was go­ing to pee my­self.’

Dec says: ‘He hasn’t been given the break un­til now, but we just wanted to be there and do it.’

Matt says: ‘I’ve cried so many times since my au­di­tion aired as ev­ery­one has shown me so much love and sup­port. In the live shows I want to show more of the same and I’m look­ing for­ward to try­ing to get my per­son­al­ity across, which is the most im­por­tant thing.’
