Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee for Celebrity Big Brother
Magician Paul Daniels and his wife, Debbie McGee, are to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Paul Daniels and his wife Debbie McGee are set to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The couple have agreed to join the celebrities in the house after last-minute talks with the show's bosses, and the 76-year-old magician is hoping to impress his fellow housemates with his fine array of tricks.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "They're very excited to be going in together - they'd never have considered doing it separately.
"Paul and Debbie are perfect for 'Big Brother'. They're great fun, big personalities and don't take themselves too seriously.
"Paul's hoping to show off his magic skills in the tasks and win some younger fans."
Paul and Debbie, 55 - who have been married for 26 years - have appeared on reality television shows in the past.
The couple starred on 'The X Factor: Battle of the Stars', Channel 5's 'The Farm' and 'Wife Swap'.
The veteran magician also appeared on popular BBC One show, 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2010.
Other stars who are rumoured to have signed up for 'Celebrity Big Brother' - which starts again next Monday (18.08.14) - include actor Gary Busey, Gogglebox's George Gilbey and Made In Chelsea's Stephanie Pratt.
