Britain's Got Talent Winner George Sampson Left Bald By Famous Head Spinning
3 August 2017, 10:00
The 24-year-old Britain's Got Talent winner has revealed the results of two hair transplants - each worth £9,000 - after he was left with bald patches from his trademark head spins.
Appearing on This Morning, George took off his cap to reveal a few remaining bald patches at the crown of his head, still visible despite having already undergone the treatment.
The dancer, who appeared on the talent show in 2008, told Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes that it wasn't just the head spinning that caused his baldness.
He said: "There was more to it than head spinning.
"It started with genetics my dad hasn’t got the greatest hairline but then everything I do, the stress related illness, I was diagnosed with alopecia then the head spinning."
George initially tried to hide his feelings about his hair loss, admitting: "I’ve had two transplants – I was completely bald in the middle. I had a landing strip of bare skin.
"The second transplant I’ve had for my hairline. I think they’ve taken about 1500 hairs from the back and put them in the middle.
"I reckon I've got about six/seven months before my hair grows back but in the context of that it means nothing."

Since Britain's Got Talent, George has been keeping busy with his role in musical, Our House, and admitted that his dream job would be to star in Coronation Street.
He said: "My dream job would be to get in Coronation Street. We watch it religiously, like we actually set our alarms to watch it. I'm in rehearsals until six o'clock so that gives me an hour and a half to get back in time. I love Coronation Street."
Will we be seeing George on the cobbles anytime soon? Only time will tell...
