Britain’s Got Talent’s Maddox Dixon teases exciting new TV project

Magician Maddox Dixon first came to the public's attention when he appeared on Britain's Got Talent in 2018.

The illusionist, who is known for his mind-boggling tricks, wowed the panelist with his Rubik cube stunt which Amanda Holden dubbed "absolutely extraordinary".

Since his stint on the famous ITV programme, Maddox has been working on other exciting projects and spoke exclusively to Daily Star Online about his first foray into the magic world, his future plans and his collaborative trick with Highland Spring.

Discussing how he first got into performing, he explained: "To be honest, I wanted to be in a rock band my entire life. I grew up and I taught myself the drums, the guitar and grew my hair long. All those cliche things things that young, adolescent men do.

"I guess that was my first taste of what being a performer meant. I guess I out grew jumping up and down onstage.

"I had a lot of downtime on my hands while touring. I started with origami. Magic, slight of hands, and illusions sort of became the next thing. It was all about finding skills with your hands.

"I started performing magic on tour, because there was really nothing else to do. "

Discussing his time on BGT, Maddox admitted it was like "one, giant rollercoaster".

When asked if he would like to perform magic on the small screen once again, he replied: "Oh! 100%.

"I don't know how much I can talk about it, but there is this docu-style series that is being filmed next year.

"It's all about facing your fears. I'll be reconnecting with some amazing people I've met over the years and posing them the question 'what have you always wanted to do but never been able to do?'"

"There will be some TV stuff next year for sure."

And while his profile has skyrocketed tenfold following his appearance on the competition, Maddox recently partnered with natural source water brand, Highland Spring, as part of its new “Remarkabubble” campaign, which saw the magician give the nation a little lift through a series of uplifting magical illusions.

Explaining the stunt, he said: "It's been exciting to get the general public to take a moment to think about what makes them feel uplifted and then get them to do something incredible. That was the brief, that was the general vibe.

"It's been a challenge. An exciting one, but it's been a challenge to surprise people."

He added: "My brand and my style, is more 'look at you, you're amazing.' It's about getting people lifted into that positive mindset.

"It [the stunt] was centred around the September blues, and being back from our summer holiday. How can we get people who don't know me, and I don't know them to do something amazing by trying to make them feel good within two minutes?"
