"Umagang Kay Ganda" co-host Jeffrey Tam successfully joined this year's FISM World Championship of Magic in Blackpool, England.

Tam landed in sixth place at the Parlor Close-Up Magic Category. He was dubbed as the first Filipino magician to conquer Europe, and was featured on UK's Five on One.

In 2009, Tam was named the Close-up Magic champion at the International Magic Extravaganza in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

"Nag-e-enjoy talaga ako dito kasi ang dami ko na ding Filipino na na meet dito at ang dami kong kaibigang Briton at ang experience ko sa magic lalong na-enhance kasi ang dami kong na-meet na magician," Tam said.

Tam, who has been staying in the UK for the last three months, performs at the Illusions Magic Bar, the only one of its kind in the UK.

But Tam said he's raring to go back to ABS-CBN's morning show and be reunited with his co-hosts.
