Former Boyzone member and Coronation Street actor Keith Duffy was zorbing down a red-carpet stage on the Royal Mile yesterday, as he took part in filming for the next series of BBC One hit, The Magicians.

In front of a crowd of curious passers-by, Keith was brave enough to take on a zorb washing machine challenge which saw him carry out a surprising trick on one audience member – he emerged from a dizzying spell in the zorb to reveal he was wearing her underwear.

The Magicians, which sees some of the UK’s top magic acts working with celebrity assistants each week, is set to return to the BBC in the New Year, with acts including Festival favourites Barry and Stuart.
