Bgt star Darcy Oake is going on tour: Looking back at his crazy year

23 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It seems like forever ago that Britain's Got Talent was on telly this year, but one act we remember very well indeed is Darcy Oake - the magician who baffled us with doves and disappearing acts and all sorts.

Darcy has a 12-date tour of the UK planned for next year - and tickets are on sale now - while he's also got an ITV special airing on Saturday (December 27) at 9.50pm. So we thought it was a good idea to call up Darcy for a chat about his crazy year, what's to come next, what went really wrong with one dove, and why Simon Cowell would put him off in the audience...

You've had such a crazy year - do you feel like your life's really changed since Britain's Got Talent?

"Oh, completely. I still look back at that and I'm still currently like, 'Is this all for real? »
