The day that British Eurovision “Man Band” Blue got seriously Punked and Tricked on TV. The guys from Blue – with the help of member Simon Webbe – were seriously caught out by ITV’s magician Ben Hanlin.
For the first episode of “Tricked”, Ben roped Webbe into playing a trick on the rest of Blue. He took them on a fake photo shoot in Dorset, and made it look as if the Webbe was inside a runaway caravan which went over a cliff.
Fellow band mates were left distraught when they believed Webbe had plunged to his death. Lee Ryan was inconsolable. Moments later it was revealed that it was the work of magician Ben Hanlin – who has baffled stars and members of the public with his magic.
Here is the build up and climax to the Blue stunt. As they say at “Don’t try this at home people”.
Blue live to tell the tale.
