Swank, however, became nervous when he heard the laughter of the more than 2,000 people in the audience....

So promises the most successful television magician of the 20th century, Paul Daniels, of his evening of entertainment at the Spa Centre in Leamington tomorrow (Saturday). “I guarantee a good night out,” said the 73-year-old when the Courier caught up with him ahead of the show. Most of us who were around during the 1980s and 1990s will remember tuning in to the addictive weekly viewings of The Paul Daniels Magic Show on BBC One.
