First look at George Sampson’s Britain’s Got Talent return for The Champions series

Here’s a first preview of Saturday night’s Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions as George Sampson returns.


Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions brings together both Britain and the world’s most talented and memorable acts from past series of Got Talent.

They’re going head to head to be crowned the ultimate champion and walk away with a cash prize and coveted Champions Trophy.

This Saturday sees the fourth heat as nine more acts compete for two places in the grand final.

One of those taking to the stage is former BGT winner, George Sampson.

The dancer won the second series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2008, aged just 14.


In this preview clip, you can take a first look at George’s incredible performance as he takes a journey through BGT and beyond!

Ahead of the episode, George has opened up about his 2008 win in a new interview.

“I look back and sometimes I think I was living the dream. And then other times I look back and think I missed out on all the normal things a kid at that age should be doing,” he told The Sun newspaper of his overnight success. “I’ve never been to college. I’ve never been on a lads’ holiday. I wouldn’t change it for what I’ve done but I do think about it a lot.

“People wanted me to fail and go off the rails but I stayed on the straight and narrow. I’ve never done drugs and I don’t drink to excess, that’s just not me.

“I just love dancing and I want to dance forever.”

Other acts on Britain’s Got Talent this weekend are father and son dance duo and all round BGT legends Stavros Flatley and reigning BGT champion, singer Colin Thackeray.

Joining them are rollerskating duo Billy & Emily England and mini magician Issy Simpson.


International acts competing are mime act Tape Face from New Zealand, Australian singer Bonnie Anderson, American comedian Preacher Lawson and Mirror Family, a mirror and light dance act who first appeared on Czecho Slovakia’s Got Talent.

Two will make the final, one chosen by the judges via the golden buzzer and one via the arena audience vote.

The first heat saw Ukrainian sand artist Kseniya Simonova win the Golden Buzzer from Amanda while American daredevil duo Bello and Annaliese Nock won the superfan vote.


The second heat saw German dog act Alexa Lauenburger win Ant and Dec’s golden buzzer and dancers MerseyGirls win the audience vote while last weekend it was dancers Paddy and Nico who got the golden buzzer from David and illusionist Darcy Oake make the final with the audience vote.

Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions continues at 8:30PM on ITV this Saturday, September 21.
