"I've been doing magic for four years now; I started off with magic kits… Then I started doing card magic," Aidan told Ellen.

When asked if he was enjoying his time in California he said, "I love it though it was an 11-hour flight. Our hotel is huge though.

"Yesterday we went to the Walk of Fame and the Hollywood sign."

There was also a surprise in store for Aidan, who hails from Maynooth, when America's Got Talent magician Shin Lim invited him to appear in his magic show in Las Vegas.
