Magid could be seen in the greenroom, before later joining the other guests on stage to take part in a rap battle.

He rapped about about his fellow guests, and reiterated his views about Donald Trump.

It comes just a month after he was thrust into the national spotlight for his controversial views on the American president, after he branded Trump a wasteman in a packed out council meeting before banning him from Sheffield.

He also caused controversy at this year's Tramlines after he displayed a poster of Sheffield's ten commandments, which he said were 'just tongue in cheek' and shouldn't be taken seriously.
