Israeli illusionist and TV personality Uri Geller joined Jonny Gould feat. Ash to remember David Gest and his career.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star, who was married to Liza Minnelli from 2002-2003, was found dead in a London hotel on Tuesday.

When asked what type of producer Gest was, Uri said he “produced the highest rated musical television special in history - it was Michael Jackson’s 30th anniversary celebration, that’s huge.”

He added: “He was a nice man. He was immensely charismatic. He was an amazing character. I guess that’s what created the aura around him”.
