Matt Edmondson is a broadcaster, writer, producer, board-game inventor and former professional magician who regularly performed at parties, weddings and corporate functions. He started his career as a presenter on CBBC over a decade ago and since then he has presented Channel 4’s flagship youth strand T4, and hosted Fake Reaction, TV OD and The Xtra Factor for ITV2. He has written and presented online series for both The Apprentice and The X Factor and he also took part in the BBC's Let's Sing and Dance for Comic Relief. Matt hosts a weekend show on BBC Radio 1 and the ITV2 show Release the Hounds. Although no longer a performer of magic, Matt still has a huge interest in the field. He is a member of The Magic Circle, and regularly annoys his wife by trying to show her card tricks. His love of magic is clear in his fantastically funny children's book The Greatest Magician in the World, a picture book adventure full of jaw-dropping tricks for young magic fans.
