Do you believe in magic? Stephen does
Born in East London, Stephen grew up in Somerset with father Christopher and mother Maureen Mulhern. Stephen developed an affinity for performance through a love of magic. He and his father had an interest in magic. Through practice, he made his first public appearances while on holiday in a Butlins resort doing magic tricks.
Stephen’s career as a youth performer led to appearances on Blue Peter and a Michael Barrymore fronted family programme. Shortly thereafter came the biggest break of his career: winning The Big Big Talent Show (fronted by Jonathan Ross). The victory earned him a spot performing before Queen Elizabeth II on the Royal Variety Performance.

A Stephen Mulhern fun fact
For revealing too much information about one trick on the children’s show Finger Tips, Stephen’s membership in Magic Circle was revoked. Here’s how Stephen explained it in 2015:
“The trick was to put a box on your head and turn this ratchet so it looks like your head is spinning, so I did it on Fearne, and then showed them how to make it.
“Well, The Magic Circle deemed it too good to reveal, so they suspended me.”
Although he regained membership to the Magic Circle, reruns of the show continuously land Mulhern in hot water with the group.
“Every time they repeat it, I get suspended. I’m suspended [as of when he spoke in 2015]. It’s ridiculous. You couldn’t write it.”
