Magician Paul Daniels is hoping to make one of his old wigs vanish – on eBay.

Bald Daniels is flicking off a hairpiece he used to wear on stage and more than 20 bidders have pushed the price up to a respectable £295 with more than three days left to go.

The old trickster wrote on Ebay: “When I was clearing out my props store a few weeks ago I came across a box of the wigs I used to wear when I thought it was necessary.

“For a laugh I put one on, took the above photograph and made ’em laugh on Twitter.

He said some of his followers started making him offers for the auburn-tinged rug (pictured above).

“End result… Here’s your chance to own one of the hairpieces that decorated the head of one of the Greatest Sex Symbols of all time… oh yes, AND I nearly forgot, Body Builder! “p.s. It can keep your head warm in the winter :)”

Daniels has a successful eBay, as well as magic, career. He has made 498 transactions on eBay and has 100% feedback from buyers and sellers.
