Gary and Paul (AKA The Twins) began their professional careers working as illusionists and spent many years working on cruise ships. They were once tipped to win BGT by Amanda Holden and in this episode explain why their involvement in the show fell through. After this they diversified their careers into supplying special effects to theatrical shows and pantomimes and have built up an incredible portfolio of enormous special effects that wow over 35 panto's each Christmas in the UK at the largest theatres including The London Palladium. Most interestingly they have also developed a practical and safe way of flying celebrities, double decker buses and a horse and carriage over the heads of the audience in the stalls, in this interview they provide a sneak peak into the development of this spectacular illusion.
