Approaching groups of girls, talking to strangers, becoming more confident - these are all skills that the famously timid Dynamo has had to develop over the years. It's all very well performing a card trick to them or putting their phone in a beer bottle, but what if you actually want to get her number out of it?

"They'll look at me and be like, 'Well? Are you going to do a trick?' And I'll say, 'Oh, no. I was just saying hello.' But, in their heads, they're already expecting some magic."

But what if you're not a mega-famous and rich TV magician? FHM sits down with Dynamo to ask him how he works his magic, without the actual magic bit.

Dynamo: Magician Impossible: Series 3 is on Blu-ray and DVD now.
