RIP Paul Daniels

Postby annie » 17 Mar 2016, 09:18

Magician Paul Daniels has died aged 77, his publicist has said.

He had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour in February.

Daniels was born Newton Edward Daniels in Middlesbrough and developed his magic skills in working men's clubs, making his TV debut on talent series Opportunity Knocks.

He went on to front the BBC's Paul Daniels Magic Show, which ran for 15 years, and became one of the biggest stars on British TV.

Daniels was known for a string of catchphrases, including the line: "You'll like this... not a lot, but you'll like it."

He had recently returned from hospital to his Berkshire home in March, following his diagnosis.

His son, Martin Daniels, said at the time: "He has said before, 'When it's your time it's your time' and that's how he is trying to face up to things."

He leaves wife Debbie McGee, who had been his on-stage assistant, and his three sons from a previous marriage
