'Britain's Got Talent' magician Darcy Oake has a "very dangerous piece" prepared for the show's final this weekend
'Britain's Got Talent' star Darcy Oake is planning a "very dangerous piece" for the show's finale this weekend.
The Canadian magician, who has wowed judges with his risky routines on the ITV talent show so far, has promised his performance on Saturday night (07.06.14) will be bigger and better than anything he has ever done before.
Speaking to Global News, he said: "The way we're doing it, it's risky -- big time. But I feel like each piece needs to be bigger than the last one, and this is kind of the only way to close out the show for me."
The 26-year-old hunk, who has been seen hanging by his feet while trying to get out of a straight jacket before a bear trap dangling from a burning rope above him is released, always knew he'd become a magician after his father tricked him during a card game.
He explained: "He got me to pick a card, I picked it, put it back in the pack, he shuffled the pack, pulled one out and said, 'This was your card,' and it was my card. I begged him to tell me how he did it for, like, a month and he wouldn't. And then I found out it was just a complete accident."
Meanwhile, Darcy will be joined by James Smith, boy-band Collabro and dance troupe Addict Initiative in this week's final in the hope of bagging the £250,000 prize.
