The Magicians, Series 1 Episode 5 of 5

Duration: 1 hour

Lenny Henry hosts as three of the world's greatest magic acts team up with celebrities to bring us jaw-dropping illusions and classic tricks with a contemporary twist.

Illusionist of the decade Luis de Matos is partnered by Neil Morrissey; winners of Best Comedy Illusionists at the World Comedy Awards, the dark and twisted Barry and Stuart, team up with Angela Griffin; and the king of close up magic, Chris Korn, is joined by George and Larry Lamb.

They all perform three magic acts in a bid to impress the studio audience and avoid the fearsome forfeit - but who will be tackling the extreme feat of courage and test of trust this week?
