George William Sampson is a British street dancer and actor from Warrington.He won the second series of Britain's Got Talent on 31 May 2008 at the age of 14. He is an official ambassador of the United Dance Organization.

George Was Bullied because he preferred dancing to playing football....George Once Told Newround CBBC ... "When I was growing up all the kids thought I was weird as while they went off to play footie I did dance lessons.They called me twinkle-toes, dancing queen - all the insults they could think of as they didn't like me being different.It would've been a lot easier if I'd stopped, but I knew it was what I wanted to do with my life.And all those lads that used to bully me try to be my best mate now!That's OK if it means their attitudes have changed - they weren't my real friends anyway.I know who my [real] friends were - they ones who stood by me didn't take the mick and didn't care what anyone else thought."

Dancing when you are a boy may not get you a lot of friends but when you get older all the girls will be chasing you down the street
