When award-winning magician and mentalist Neil Henry decided to propose to his girlfriend Charlie Gardner as part of one of his Edinburgh Fringe shows, did he:

(a) go down on one knee, put on his best puppy eyes and pop the question?

(b) hide the ring at the bottom of a champagne glass and hope she wouldn’t swallow the damn thing?

(c) rope his beloved into helping him perform some brilliant piece of on-stage magic involving alphabet soup?

The clue’s in the question; if you plumped for (a) and (b), then we predict some very dull proposals in your future which, considering your lack of imagination, may be just as well.

This video reveals all…
