Wacky magician David Blaine's ability to cope without food has been put to the ultimate test by British comedian HENRY NAYLOR - who threw a full English breakfast at him.

Naylor, 37, was arrested by the magician's security team, who have the job of protecting Blaine's tiny box over London's River Thames as Blaine attempts to survive 44 days with only water to support him.

Apart from the sausages, eggs, potatoes, mushrooms, bacon and tomatoes launched by Naylor, Blaine has had to endure nights of golf ball throwing and loud drums.

Naylor is famed in Britain for starring alongside Rowan Atkinson in a series of TV adverts for BARCLAYCARD - the precursor to smash hit film JOHNNY ENGLISH.
