I was shocked to see this in the Paper

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-......els.html

First of all if anything this is almost the same as OZ Perlman did on AGT with the exception of the Hot Tea at the End (Which is nothing Like 'magic teapot') at all

2nd Both of the Items are Commercially Available so if you purchase the Items you are Free to use them as you want

Nothing at all to do with the Magic Circle

What does everyone else think?

She is heartbroken so she is doing this without thinking... emotions taking care of her...

The sillouette trick is from Annemann and Paul Daniels did his version of it. I agree with Lseeyou that she is heartbroken and probably not thinking straight. She deserves a pass on this. Poor girl.

I also would not rule out her being either misquoted or quoted out of context by a tabloid looking for a story.

Debbie doesn't need a pass.

The disparate sentences the Mail quotes from Debbie don't add up to "he stole my husbands act"

It's a wonder this rag didn't find a way to blame immigrants as well.

It' would be a shame if she gets dragged into this manufactured controversy.

Don't believe anything you read in the Daily Mail or the Mail Online.

For Daily Mail you could substitute Fox News to give Americans an idea of the quality of reporting we are talking about here.

Her nephew is supposed to be appearing on BGT at some point so perhaps she's a tad biased? It's all publicity after all.

I'm sure Paul must have done the effect at some point but it's not one I recall seeing him do nor is it one he's known for in any way.

I'm just pleased to know that at least some folks in other parts of the world are aware of what Fox News is and that it's just another in the Murdoch line.
I too believe this is another case of sensationalizing a story and trying to manufacture controversy.
Controversy provokes emotions and emotions sell newspapers.

Just a point of clarity - it was The Sun newspaper that first carried the story. The Mail and everyone else jumped on the band wagon after that.

For those that don't know, The Sun is owned by Murdoch. So, no surprise that the Mail also carried the story: whereas the Mail is not owned by Murdoch (it is owned by a trust), the Chairman of the Mail is Lord Rothermere - a close friend of Murdoch's. I can never decide which paper is the worst for false reporting.

FYI - the producers of Britain's Got Talent have defended themselves against the accusations by pointing out how old the silhouette cutting is, going back to the 1930s (as already noted above by Theo Annemann).

The REAL story here is that Oz Pearlman was the one who was downright copied - down to the throwing of the pads across the stage.

Paul Daniels used the routine developed by Theodor Annemann - Oz came up with the cool twist in 2007.

Why didn't the newspaper mention Oz on AGT from only some months ago?

That was the real story.

Oz, lovely though he is, is unheard of here in the UK as far as the general public is concerned. Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee are household names. Ripping off Oz wouldn't have been a story at all.

And that's precisely why I don't read the Sun.

I think Ray's comments could be applied to the Sun's article too. The whole story seems somewhat manufactured.

There's a difference between 'media bashing' and a desire for decent journalism.
