But his dramatic weight loss was actually live saving after the magician suffered a heart attack a couple of years ago.

“I put on 40 kilos, weighing 150kg, was mega-stressed, not happy and went through a bit of depression. Then I had a heart attack,” he told the magazine.

Apollo, real name Jake Spence, revealed to the publication that after the heart attack he “ended up in critical care for two weeks” and it forced him to totally “reassess [his] life”.

That is when he decided to turn to magic and performing and hasn’t looked back since.
