About me

I’m a bubbly CBeebies TV presenter, actor and dancer who wants to show the world that people with a learning disability can dream big and be employed.

Myth to bust: People with Down's Syndrome are always happy. It's not true; we have a whole range of emotions like anyone else!

George Webster - Becoming a star

As an actor and dancer, George is passionate about representation on stage and screen. He is part of a national theatre ensemble with Separate Doors, works with Yorkshire Dance and is part of the performance academy at Mind the Gap Studios, studying for a performing arts degree.

“We need to see more people with a learning disability in the media” George says. “It’s so important.  We deserve equal opportunities like you all do, jobs like you all have.”

“We need to be celebrated because we’re people, we exist.”
