Add this to hilarious games and surprise celebrity guests it makes it the ideal show for all the family to enjoy!”

Those not playing at home can still share in the excitement and thrills that the challenges and stunts will provide. Magic Numbers promises must-see television and will be an exciting part of the weekend line-up.

Stephen Mulhern interview

So Stephen, are you excited to be hosting Magic Numbers?

“I cannot wait, it’s always been a dream to host a gameshow. To think it’s not only a gameshow but a variety show as well is just perfect, and the fact that it’s live with life changing amounts of money, it ticks every box for the perfect show. Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about it.”

Magic Numbers is like a variety show with an interactive element for viewers?

“Yes,” says Stephen, “it’s like a variety show where at the end someone at home can win up to £250,000 by simply watching these acts generate numbers. It’s such a neat idea. Honestly I just love it! “ Stephen enthuses.

Do you like doing live TV?

”Yes, the reason I like it is because it’s immediate and you give it your best.” Stephen continues: “Whereas sometimes in a pre-recorded show if something doesn’t go right you go ‘Okay, we’ll do it again’. With a live show, once you’ve done it you can’t go back on it.”

And even if viewers don’t match the numbers they can still watch it as an entertainment show?

Stephen says: “This is it. Even if you can’t play because your numbers don’t match or you don’t want to take part, you will love the show because of the entertainment. And the other thing I think is so important it doesn’t matter what age you are you will still enjoy the entertainment. It is the perfect family entertainment show!”
