Magician David Blaine stunned onlookers at a New York restaurant by smashing a glass - and proceeding to eat it piece by piece.

The renowned illusionist was recently out dining with a group of friends, including professional poker player Phil Ivey, at the Tao eaterie, when Ivey asked Blaine to provide some unusual entertainment - in return for $10,000 (#5,000).

A source tells the New York Daily News, "David was doing a bunch of tricks, but Phil wanted to see something spectacular. He offered David $10,000 to eat a glass from the table."

So Blaine broke a large glass and then ate every shard, much to the horror of fellow diners. And the star's representative confirmed that the stunt was genuine, saying, "This did happen and was completely real." (LR/WNWCDN/CAM)
