‘Britain’s Got Talent’ 2016: Paul Daniels’ Nephew James Phelan To Appear On New Series

But will he impress the judges?

Paul Daniels’ nephew James Phelan is set to appear on the upcoming series of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, which kicks off this weekend.

James, who is also a magician, has spoken to Radio Times about auditioning for the show, in a newly-published interview that was given before Paul’s death.

James’s initial audition was filmed at the start of the year, but if he makes it through the live shows, he’ll be taking to the stage again, this time in front of a live studio audience.



While the exact contents of this year’s shows are being kept under wraps, bosses have revealed that we expect a few disagreements between the judges, one of which will occur when Simon Cowell makes a joke about David Walliams’ recent marriage split.
