A MAGICIAN from Furness has impressed judges and wowed audiences all the way to the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent. 

Jack Rhodes, 26, from Ulverston will take to the stage tonight (Tuesday, 8pm) on ITV with his comedy and magic show. 

He only left his job as a nuclear engineer in January this year but is already planning a UK tour in October. 

"Performing on BGT is a brilliant opportunity for me to show the world my unique take on comedy and magic," said Jack.

"I can’t wait to bring my live show 'Part-Time Wizard, Full-Time Moron' to theatres across the country. I’ve spent the last few years making videos in my garage, so performing in front of real people is a real treat."

He has been posting 'comedy, magic and nonsense' videos on YouTube since 2020. 

On his first appearance in Britain's Got Talent, Jack got judges Simon Cowell and Bruno Tonioli to write words on cards before swapping them without them noticing.

He also showed Simon a video he put on YouTube months prior correctly predicting that he would write the word 'cucumber.' 

Jack then made an assistant disappear in a box. 

Judge Alesha Dixon told him afterwards: "I loved the way presented that I've never seen it done like that before that felt really fresh."

She also praised him for his sense of humour. Simon called him 'really smart' and someone with 'massive potential.' 

Bruno said that he was 'gobsmacked.'
