Ben Hanlin started his media career by presenting a series on the Discovery Channel called Breaking Magic, which explored how magicians use science to create jaw-dropping magic tricks.
He went on to front his own magic show, Tricked, on ITV2, which ran for three series from 2013 to 2016. The show involved Hanlin pranking celebrities with his illusions, including the likes of Joe Swash, Peter Andre and Gemma Collins.
For the last three years, Hanlin has been a regular voice on Capital Birmingham radio station.
What did Ben Hanlin say about joining Dancing On Ice 2020?
After announcing his involvement on BBC Radio London, Hanlin said: “Can I ice skate? Barely. But I did say to the producers ‘if I’m going to do this, can I try to do magic on ice?’ I will try and attempt to put magic into the show if I can.”
