BGT star speaks out on becoming a judge on ITV show

BGT: Magical Bones performs and brings powerful message

Magical Bones, whose real name is Richard Essien, reached the Britain’s Got Talent final in 2020.

Despite launching a successful career off the back of the ITV talent show, the magician opened up about his dream of becoming a judge one day.

Bruno Tonioli is the show’s new addition after he replaced David Walliams on the judging panel.

However, Magical Bones exclusively told “Yeah, absolutely. I’d love to be a judge on one of those shows.

“I think I have a wealth of experience as a dancer and also as a magician. So I think I have a good eye for talent.”

Magical Bones also shared his thoughts about Bruno and what he brings to the BGT judging panel.

“I think he’s hilarious,” the BGT star shared. “I really like him and he’s got a very likable personality on telly. He seems very genuine and very honest with his decisions.

“I like the fact that he pressed his Golden Buzzer halfway through the middle of an act which has never been done before.

“He’s just an honest, genuine guy. He’s really funny as well.”

Since appearing on the ITV series, Magical Bones’ career has flourished and he has taken his magic up and down the country.

Speaking about what life has been like since appearing on the show, he continued: “It’s been a bit of a whirlwind actually.

“My Britain’s Got Talent performance was during the pandemic, so when I did the performance I had a lot of exposure.

“It was the exposure I needed in terms of, you know, getting to that next level, in terms of publicity and stuff.”

“However, because of the pandemic, I wasn’t able to really activate on that because we were all in lockdowns and stuff like that,” Magical Bones added.

“So a lot of the performances I did were Zoom shows, but since that has been released, there’s been a nice little explosion of performances and people coming to see shows now and it’s just been a sense of relief.

“So it’s like, I feel like my career was almost on hold until the pandemic was over.

“So yeah, now it’s just been really exciting because now people get to see my brand in person.”

Britain’s Got Talent airs on Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
