A FINALIST of last year's series of Britain's Got Talent is bringing his show to Colchester. 

Magician Cillian O’Connor is coming to the city as part of his debut UK and Ireland tour.

After wowing Simon Cowell and the show's judges, he secured a place in the nation's heart, eventually finishing in the top three.
