Tributes have poured in for magician Paul Daniels following the tragic news that he'd passed away from a brain tumour overnight
Paul Daniels' son has led the tributes to his father following the legendary magician's tragic death last night (16.03.16).
Gary Daniels, 46, took to his social networking sites moments after the news broke that the television star had passed away from a brain tumour to honour his dad.
The heartbroken star uploaded a photograph of a very fitting image of a crying rabbit being pulled from top hat with a broken hearted playing card wedged under his paw.

The legendary television magician sadly passed away at his home in Berkshire at the age of 77 after losing his battle with an incurable brain tumour.
