Prepare to be dazzled, as Lenny Henry presents three of the world's best magic acts as they are teamed up with three celebrities for awe-inspiring illusions and magic tricks with contemporary twists.

Illusionist of the decade Luis de Matos is joined by Chris Tarrant; winners of the Best Comedy Illusionist award at the World Magic Awards, the dark and twisted Barry and Stuart, team up with Stephen K Amos; and the king of close-up magic, Chris Korn, is partnered by Samantha Womack.
