Raven (31) kicked off his three minute set with an impressive trick which saw him transform £50 notes into notes from the 'Bank of Britain's Got Talent'.

He followed up with an equally impressive card trick which involved Simon Cowell choosing a particular card and an animated magician drawn on the pack of cards pulling that particular card from a hat.

"I know this sounds crazy but I now actually believe in magic," said Simon.  "Like some people believe in ghosts, I now believe in magic because there's no explanation for that."

Alicia Dixon added, "You are incredible.  I feel we are witnessing the beginning of something special with you." and David Walliams said it was a "world class trick" and "one of the best magic tricks" he had ever seen.
