David Beckham was visibly shocked after watching David Blaine in action

The former footballer was visibly shocked by the trick, which saw the illusionist sew his mouth shut before spitting out two live frogs.

"He says name an animal he can keep alive in his hand. I said a frog," David explains. "So he sewed his mouth shut with a needle and thread. I thought the sewing the mouth was the trick, forgot about the frog bit…

"Live frogs came out of his mouth!!" he then exclaims, holding his head in his hands. "Oh my God!!"

David isn't the only celebrity to star in the new series of Beyond Magic. Johnny Depp, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jennifer Lawrence, John Travolta and Emma Stone have also been left astounded by the 43-year-old magician.

The show, which will be David's final TV special before he sets off on his first world tour, has been three years in the making.

"The first part was learning how to do all sorts of new things that I've never done before. Things that were historical pieces of magic. Things that were legendary stories in magic where the actual performers took their secrets to the grave," he told People.

"You see the progress of learning these for the first time. You'll see behind the scenes and how I work on the magic effect and then you see me go out into the real world and use these new pieces of magic. I look for amazing and truthful responses from people of all walks of life."

David added: "This is my favourite special so far. The fact that it's the first time that there's an actual story and a little bit of a reveal other than just me doing the magic as a mysterious strange character — you get a peek inside of my world.


"I'm also doing magic to many of my favourite entertainers in the world as well: Johnny Depp, Drake, Stephen Curry, Dave Chappelle, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jennifer Lawrence, David Beckham, John Travolta, Emma Stone and more. It's a big list of lots of my favourite people. It was fun making."
