Britains Got Talent winner George Sampson has failed to make it through to the Champions final, losing out to Preacher Lawson.

The 26-year-old dancer who won the show in 2008 at the age of 14 made an emotional return to the show tonight, after being told he would never dance again.

But with Simon Cowells Golden Buzzer going to Stavros Flatley, George had to rely on the audience vote – and failed to even make it to the top three, with Colin Thackeray, Lawson and American skate act Billy & Emily England all named by Ant and Dec.

Fans werent happy that George missed out, tweeting that he should have been in the top three.

Preacher, however, was left speechless by his win, telling Ant and Dec: I dont know what to say, I love you, thats what I want to say.



Thank you to the judges for the kind words, I am just so happy. I cant believe I am here right now.

George had performed an energetic routine that saw him pay tribute to his journey to the stage but it wasnt to be.

Ahead of his comeback, he had vowed there was no way hes turning his back on his passion.

Around a year after winning Britains Got Talent I sustained a really bad back injury, and doctors told me I might not ever be able to dance again, he told the camera.

To be told bluntly, “No”, was devastating.

Im stubborn. There was no chance I was going to stop dancing. Its been a long road to recovery but Ive worked hard and Im back.
