GEORGE Sampson is back on the screen in the show that propelled him to fame.

The former Birchwood High School student is competing in Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions which is on ITV on Saturdays.

The idea of the spin-off programme is to pit former winners and favourites against each other in a kind of entertainment battle royal.

George, who was recently nominated for a WhatsOnStage Award for his role in the musical Our House, won the second series of Britain’s Got Talent with his showstopping street dance performances when he was just 14.

That secured him a role in the 2008 West End production of hip hop musical Into The Hoods.

George, who attended Gorse Covert Primary School pupil, also created dance DVDs and released a single, Get Up On The Dance Floor, which reached number 30 in the UK chart.

He is also known for Waterloo Road and the StreetDance films.

Last year he told us: “I’m coming up to my 10th anniversary since winning the show and it feels bizarre that I’m still doing the work I wanted to do then.

“It doesn’t come easy. We’ve seen loads of stories and cases of people who have come out of reality TV and it’s not necessarily gone the way they thought it would.

“There’s always pressure because there’s always going to be another series, another winner and somebody new in the spotlight. I think it comes down to hard work, a lot of luck and being nice to people along the way.”
