George Sampson has revealed that he is planning on having a hair transplant after struggling with alopecia as well as genetics and as a result of his dancing. Posting on Twitter, the Britain's Got Talent winner wrote: "On the 26 April 2017, I will be travelling to the Juvida Clic, Skipton, to have a HAIR TRANSPLANT… This is something I've considered having done for years, I have always been convincing myself I'm not worried or it's not a big deal but really it is. I am only 23."

He continued to explain why he has suffered for hair loss, writing: "It's not only for my own confidence but also being in my line of work which is very image orientated and unfortunately I felt my hair (lack of) could affect my work. My hair loss comes from three things; alopecia (caused by a lot of stress and loss of a family member), genetics and head spinning, as the hair loss is not only a receding hair line but a strip down the centre of my head. I spend so much time doing my hair (well Lauren does) to try and cover up as much as I can and to make use of the hair I do have. I've decided I've had enough of that, I want my own hair, I am only 23 and balding seems like something which happens to older men so I decided I will go through with a transplant."

Promising to blog the whole experience, he thanks Juvida for their assistance, adding: "Thank you to Juvida for giving me an overwhelming sense of confidence pre op, the staff have been unbelievably helpful, reassuring and professional in the build up to the op and I know this will continue during and after the procedure." His fans were quick to show their support, with one writing: "That's good news to hear George, best of luck buddy. I can't wait to see the new look." Another added: "Anything that makes you feel comfortable George! I'm sure it will go brilliantly."
