BGT magician Richard Jones came a bit of a cropper on live television this morning.
The televised magician – who is the favourite to win the ITV competition – appeared on This Morning and attempted to do a card trick involving Holly Willoughby signing a playing card.
With Holly biting down on the card, Rich wrote his name on another card and bit down on that himself.
Holding Holly’s hands, he bit down on his card, before engulfing it all in his mouth before re-producing it and swapping the cards back to reveal they had changed places.
The magician – who last night sailed through to the BGT final – was appearing on the sofa with Holly and co-hosts Philip Schofield and Rylan Clarke Neal, to showcase some of the magic that has got him to this stage in the competition.
Taking out a pack of blank cards, the 25-year-old asked Holly to autograph one of them for him.
“It’s going to get a bit strange now, but just go with it,” he said to her, asking her to then fold the card and to bite down on it.
Richard then signed another card and mirrored Holly, also putting it in his mouth.
