Jade du PreezPual-Daniels

Legendary magician Paul Daniels has died at the age of 77 from an untreatable brain tumor that he was diagnosed with in February.

He passed away in the early hours of this morning with his wife and assistant, Debbie McGee, in his Berkshire home.

His aggressive tumor was discovered after he suffered what doctors mistook for a stroke after he fell in his home in February.

Daniels fronted the BBC show Paul Daniels Magic Show for 15 years and was recently on Strictly Come Dancing.

He leaves behind his wife and three children from a previous marriage.

Today messages have flooded in across social media in tribute of Daniels.

In an interview with EN4 News, Edinburgh magician Elliot Bibby paid tribute to Daniels:

Bibby says Daniels has inspired a generation of magicians, including himself who went to see him when we was a child.

Fellow magicians Derren Brown said he “revolutionised magic” and “inspired a generation of entertainers”. Dynamo was “devastated” to hear about the passing of the magician.
