I decided if Doctor Who has a time machine then Professor Strange should have one too. (Although mine isn't as classy!)

Enjoying a day off in Ireland with fellow travelling magician Daniel Ka.

The finalists of the UK Family Entertainer of the Year before the show in Blackpool. It was an honor to be amongst them!

The late magician Paul Daniels collected magic posters from around the world and across the years. I'm very proud to be the current owner of much of his collection.

I have no recollection of this, but it's obviously a TV drama or film set in Tudor times. I did so much work as a TV extra it's impossible to remember them all. If anyone can tell me what this is from, or who my "wife" is, I'd love to know.

Enjoying the calm ocean breeze on the coast of Wales after a show.

When working on a ship you can always trust the entertainments team to take the safety drills seriously. (I'm with The Whyte Sisters, singer Lucia Matisse and magician Andy Leach).

Now you've seen the photos you might want to make sense of them all by reading my biography page.
