Need more magic in your life?
Today, we'll see illusions with a hint of football mania...
A monkey who couldn't be any brainier...
Oh, where's he gone?
..and Peter Andre driven to the point of Insania.
-You won't believe your eyes, your ears or...
-..whatever's lurking under that bowl.
Hmm, I don't think she likes it.
Welcome to Now You See It.
If you save up enough money...
That piggy bank was meant to STOP money slipping through his fingers.
Oh, Bruno Mars is feeling thirsty.
Whatever happened to saying, "Excuse me"?
Oh, look, a newspaper!
Just the one giant hole in it.
Laurent hasn't got an umbrella, and look how wet it's been.
Yeah, I know he's wearing a bowler hat, but it's not quite the same.
A spot of magic recycling, and...
Oh, look at that!
Anyway, forget the rain, let's enjoy some animal magic.
Over to Professor Richard Wiseman.
He'll have put it into the hand here, and then you go...
Blow. It completely disappears!
Where'd it go? Where'd it go? Hang on. Rewind.
Three factors in this trick to bear in mind.
We won't label the tree, that would be patronising.
But keep watching the monkey.
He'll have put it into the hand here, and then you go...
-Now, that's not magic.
Now for some underwater magic from Jasz Vegas.
So, shall we say Aqua-Cadabra?
No, let's not.
Oh, look, her hair's gone blue.
Is that the chlorine, or has
somebody had an accident in the pool?
Harry Potter and Ron Weasley looking on there.
Ah, the rings. One of them will have
her locker key on the end, I imagine.
Extraordinary stuff, this interlocking ring business, Jasz,
but unless you pick up the rubber brick,
you won't get your bronze swimming badge.
"Sorry, Hermione who?"
Some sheet-based magic now,
in the idyllic location of a light industrial estate.
You'd have thought they'd have picked a less windy day.
Still, that sheet will dry pretty quickly.
Whoa, it's Dad!
Let's take a look at another dad in magic.
Perhaps now it's time to say Abra-ca-Dad-Ra!
No, still not.
It's time for bed, and she's not having it.
There's only one way to sort this.
You can keep your Supernanny! That's some childcare!
Now Ben Hanlin's going to wind up
officially the nicest man in the world in today's Magic Moment.
-And the nicest man in the world is...
Father Christmas! No, sorry, Peter Andre.
Peter's here to do a photoshoot for a wedding cake maker.
But he doesn't realise it's all a big set-up.
In walk some actors.
-Oh, are you getting married?
-Yeah, tomorrow, yeah.
-Right, come here,
I'm going to tell you what to pick. Nah!
He's got no idea...about anything,
to be honest, but he seems happy enough.
And the stunt is on.
-It's exactly how... Are you getting emotional?
-It's really nice.
-It's perfect, absolutely perfect.
Right, I'll box it up for you,
so it can take a few minutes, and then we're going to have to
-put it in the car and stuff like that.
-We'll be back in a minute.
-Is it all right if I pop my bag here?
-Yeah, yeah, leave it there.
-We'll be back in a minute!
Can I get a few photos next to some of these? Is that all right, Peter?
Yeah, mate, honestly, whatever you want.
So if you stand there and look at maybe that one there.
-Whatever you want.
Do I have to go close up? I'm 41,
-Shall I go back a bit?
Are you serious?
-That's the worst thing that could have happened.
Apart from a burst of Mysterious Girl, of course.
First of all, let's get this out the way
so she doesn't see it, cos she's going to freak.
Remember the five second rule, Peter.
-Mm. It is good.
-I would love some, but you can't eat her cake!
-She can't eat it now. Is that fixable?
-Look at that, is that fixable?
-It's covered in hair!
Carpet fibre. I'd still eat it, can I just say?
Don't worry. Hey, listen,
she's a sweet girl, she's going to understand.
-Tell you what...
-..let's hope she understands.
-Just sit down...
-You're not going to make me make a cake, are you?
Look, right, what I'm thinking is that,
-that looks like her cake, doesn't it?
-It looks nothing like her cake.
It's four tier, it's white...
It's four tier but it's nothing like it, you can't do that.
-What I'm thinking is...
-It looks nothing like her cake,
but what you could do is put roses...
That is, that could be her cake.
I mean, just look at it. That is her cake, I reckon,
I mean, I think that kind of works as a cake.
I think that really works.
I think that IS her cake.
Whoa! Well, what do you think of that, Peter?
You can almost hear the penny trying to drop.
Why do I think you look familiar all of a sudden?
I don't really own a cake shop.
-My name's Ben Hanlin...
..I'm a magician, and you've just been tricked.
God, I was petrified for that girl!
-Peter, you're too lovely!
You are kidding. Listen,
forget all that. How did you do that?
Now, who's up for a bit of magic with a football?
I know I am, and it seems Magical Bones
has found just the guys to do one with.
I want you guys to think of a sport, OK,
get one in your mind.
Have you got one in your mind? Don't say it to me.
I'm going to use this, OK,
Just got a...
-Have you got a sport in your mind?
-What sport were you thinking of?
Aww! I wanted a football!
Let's end with a clip from top American magic show
The Carbonaro Effect in our Big Finish.
And here's Mr Carbonaro himself,
Michael, pranking an assistant in a university science research centre.
-And so we're going to get this all cleaned up for tonight...
..cos I have a class coming in.
What are we looking at?
You know, there was, like, a meteor crash in the Mojave Desert
and they picked up pieces from
-around the crater.
-And these were around it, so the dust...
You should put gloves on.
-So these just happened to be around it when the meteor...
Exactly right. Look at this thing.
What can we call... Is that...
Space pod or a space seed?
It came from outer space?
If you have gloves on you can kind of feel, it has a little bit of a...
-Roughness to it.
That's pretty interesting.
I'm sorry, I'm not laughing, but I'm laughing!
Wow! Look at that!
It was in the water for, like,
a second and it just, like...swelled up.
It's still, even, it's still solid.
Oh, that has a gap.
What is in there? I see something.
Is it...a bowling ball?
Look at that!
It is totally moving.
It's a creature from outer space, and it's still alive!
Obviously it's just a crab, but it's pretty convincingly alien.
Yikes, yikes, yikes! Aaah!
Love the fact that she's terrified, but also filming it!
(AMERICAN ACCENT) "We're being invaded by alien crabs, LOL."
Oh, my gosh, it's totally, like, moving.
What if they're, like, multiplying into more?
SHE LAUGHS NERVOUSLY
Lift the bowl up and I'll scoop them into here.
Lift, lift, lift!
Are there more space crabs under there?
What's going on?!
I have no idea, that... Why... That's like...
There were crabs, now they're cats!
It, like, assimilated... Look at the book.
There were crabs!
Now they're cats!
-They were crabs!
That's what can happen with a meteor crash like that.
If something comes out of a meteor that's alive,
and it touches something else, it can assimilate.
It's called a Carbonaro Effect.
I'm a magician.
I think she's quite relieved.
Well, there you have it, another great Now You See It.
I'm off bowling with Magical Bones
and a monkey who keeps running away with the ball.
Wish me luck!
