Paul Daniels loved entertainment, not money – Uri Geller

Uri Geller has paid tribute to “first-class magician” Paul Daniels, who died aged 77 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Geller told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "He really cared about entertainment and not about money … it wasn’t financial it was solely and purely entertainment.”

The Israeli illusionist said although he and Daniels eventually became "very close" friends, their careers started off "by him trying to debunk me".
