of a lifetime to learn some of the most eye-catching and jaw-dropping
tricks from some of the most respected and noteworthy magicians in the
world. In each episode our celebs will be taught a different genre of magic
from sleight-of-hand and comedy magic to phobia magic and even large-scale
illusions. Our celebrity cast will not have to master these tricks alone as
they will be paired up with renowned magicians including: Asi Wind, Rocco,
Silly Billy, Murray, David Regal, Derek Hughes and Simon Lovell. The
magicians will do their best to teach the celebs several tricks a week when
it usually takes years to master just one. The competitors face tough

advance to the next round and get a shot at facing off in a battle of
ultimate illusions in Vegas for a grand prize of $100,000 from
