During the fascinating act, Ben told the audience it was the first trick his grandfather had shown him in India when he was first introduced to magic. 

He then seemingly shrank the playing cards until they were smaller, holding up a regular sized one form his pocket to compare them.

But fans realised this sleight of hand was his way of switching the cards, with some claiming it was ‘not really magic’. 

One complained: ‘Not really magic if you keep going into your pocket for smaller cards.’
