‘Britain’s Got Talent’ magician Darcy Oake has opened up about the heartache he’s suffered since his brother Bruce’s accidental drugs overdose in 2011.
The Canadian magician has revealed that his brother died three years ago after a long struggle with drug addiction.
Darcy has opened up about the last time he saw Bruce, explaining that he seemed healthy and happy just three months before his death.
The magician added that Bruce was a “full-blown” addict at the age of 21, four years before his death. The Sun reports that he was hooked on heroin, painkillers and crystal meth.
Darcy is hoping to win the ‘BGT’ final on Saturday 7 June and he’s planning to use the prize money to fund a rehab facility being set up by his family if he wins the show.
