Rather than having a regular assistant to help him with his tricks and illusions, Stephen prefers to work with a range of guest celebrities. His most regular guest assistant is his former Ministry of Mayhem co-presenter Holly Willoughby, who has taken part in many of his illusions, the most common of which is being sawed in half.
According to Stephen, his lucky number is 35, which he says has always brought him good luck.
He reached grade seven on both the piano and violin.
His interest in magic comes from his father, who used to teach him tricks before he went to bed when he was 13.
Growing up, his role model was Tommy Cooper.
His ambition is to star as Joseph in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
He has been good friends with fellow presenter Gareth Jones for over eight years.
He used to work as a Redcoat at the Butlins holiday camp at Minehead.
While Stephen was chatting to opera singer Katherine Jenkins at a party, she told him that she'd always had an ambition to have a go at being a magician's assistant. Stephen remembered this and later invited her to appear on his Saturday night game show Magic Numbers where, assisted by pop singer Olly Murs, he sawed her in half in a clear-sided box.
