Derren Brown on the 'visceral jeopardy' of Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil premiered tonight at the Royal Albert Hall and London Live's Jake Tupman was there to meet the stars on the purple carpet. 

The new show, Kooza, will run until February 19. London Live took a look behind the scenes at the contortionists, acrobats and high-wire daredevils who perform in the show. 

Jake spoke to the illusionist Derren Brown about what he'll be looking forward to in the show - from the awe-inspiring acrobatics to the experience of being in the moment experiencing the "visceral" jeopardy of the performers. 

Craig Revel Horwood told Jake why it's only his hip replacement that's stopping him running away to the circus.


Jake was also joined by model and broadcaster Gail Porter.
