The host spoke to the hopeful 23-year-old theatre director from Belfast before he revealed his secret party trick.
Dean said: "I like to do impressions of people in the shower," leaving a bemused Bradley awkwardly saying: "Very good."
Following a range of impressions, including Morgan Freeman and Kermit the frog, Bradley looked disappointed, but it was nothing compared with what was to come from Paul.

Rude! Unnecessarily so.
"If your Morgan Freeman impression was the best of your skills you're in a lot of trouble," ribbed Paul.

Paul hit back saying: "If you thought that was rude, minus £4,000 is your lower offer."
