The world has woken up to the sad news that David Copperfield is not a real magician.
Unlike Harry Potter, Sooty, and Stephen Mulhern, Copperfield has only been pretending to perform acts of magic for many years, as a US court case proved overnight.
Copperfield, who still magically has jet black hair at 61, has been equally unable to explain the magic used to make top model, Claudia Schiffer find him attractive.
‘I hypnotised her, good style,’ admitted pretend magician, Copperfield.
‘I’m a proper fraud. This isn’t my name either,’ admitted the disgraced faux magic man.
