The Magicians, Series 1 Episode 1 of 5

Duration: 1 hour

Incredible illusions, mind-bending magic and classic tricks with contemporary twists, performed by some of the world's best magicians.

Performers include illusionist of the decade, Luis De Matos; winners of Best Comedy Illusionists at the World Magic Awards, the dark and twisted Barry and Stuart; and the King of Close-Up Magic, Chris Korn.

Each week they will be joined by three different celebrities, and together they will compete to win the studio audience vote and escape the dreaded forfeit trick - an extreme feat of courage, mind over matter and a test of trust.

In this episode, the magicians are joined by Ashley Banjo, Bruno Tonioli and Sian Williams.
