The magician said Daniels was a "massive inspiration" to him growing up and "like many people, I had a Paul Daniels magic kit".
He added: "He proved that magic could work on television. He was one of the best magicians in the world. He was a true master."

Daniels' good friend and one-time rival Uri Geller said he was "extremely shocked" to hear the news of his passing.
"I always thought Paul Daniels was invincible, but I guess we all have to face these things one day.
"What many people might not realise about Paul was that he was world-famous, not just in the UK. And of course, he will be greatly missed."
The magician's wife Debbie McGee thanked family and friends for helping her get through the "special day".
