Lance Corporal Richard Jones has been using his world-class magic skills to wow audiences on the West End.

The 'Britain's Got Talent' winner is using his mystical talents to help raise money for the Poppy Appeal.

In one video Richard wows a young girl on the London Underground by magically moving a drawing on his hand over to hers.

While on the tube the magician also had the chance to drive the Circle Line - although thankfully didn't manage to make any of the passengers disappear! 

Richard told Forces Radio BFBS:

"The Poppy Appeal is incredibly important as every year it does a fantastic job in reminding us of the incredible work our Armed Forces do all over the world. It's a time when we get to show our respect and support to those who have served past and present by wearing a poppy."

The Household Cavalry soldier has performed before the Royal Family and works as an ambassador of the British Army.

Richard and his team of volunteers also traveled high up in one of London's tallest buildings to "raise money in the sky".
