Ma­gi­cian has Ant in tears on TV re­turn

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Ant Mc­Partlin was moved to tears on his re­turn to TV last night as he and De­clan Don­nelly pressed their golden buzzer for a Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent act.

Ma­gi­cian Marc Spel­mann wowed Ant and Dec with his emo­tional trick, which also fea­tured a Ru­bik’s cube, crayons and his wi fe’s favourite book.

Spel­mann said the real magic was the birth of his daugh­ter, who was born through IVF. But he stunned the au­di­ence with the trick, which in­volved a video of the young­ster match­ing choices the judges had made.

In the scenes filmed in Jan­uary, Ant and Dec ran out to press the golden buzzer, send­ing Spel­mann through to the live semi­fi­nals.

The TV duo were united on screen for the first time since Ant was charged with drink- driv­ing last month and stepped down from his TV com­mit­ments.

The pre­sen­ter was seen laugh­ing and danc­ing in the episode and was close to tears as Spel­mann’s trick played out.

“You got me in tears, man – re­mark­able,” Ant told the con­tes­tant.

He is ex­pected to be seen through­out the au­di­tions, which run to the end of May but will be ab­sent from the full week of live shows.

ITV con­firmed this week that Dec will be hosting the live shows solo af­ter he pre­sented the f inal two episodes of the duo’s Satur­day Night Take­away with­out his TV part­ner of al­most 30 years.
