David BlaineMaster illusionist David Blaine is plotting a magical new TV special for 2012 he hopes to turn into a global event.

The stunt magician, who has wowed fans around the world with his televised feats of endurance, is planning his next major 'trick' in May, 2012.

The show will be filmed for ABC in America and then Blaine hopes to tour North America and Europe with the concept.

Speaking to fans online via TinyChat on Friday, the illusionist said, "This is as good as it gets... All magic, nothing else.

"It's better than anything that's ever been done, by me at least... It's the most original concept I've ever come up with. It's taken me four years to sort out."

Blaine's past specials have seen him trapped in a block of ice in New York's Times Square and dangled above the River Thames in London in a glass box.
