Strapped into a strait jacket, the escapologist had just minutes to struggle free as the flames flickered close to his feet.

The stunt was filmed for his new show, The Incredible Mr Goodwin, which starts on Thursday night.

Mr Goodwin, 32, said: "Danger is a part of my profession and the adrenaline I get from each stunt I do drives me on to the next.

"Pushing the limits is exciting and I hope I have left the crowd with a memorable experience."
