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 syndrome are always happy. It's not true; we have a whole range of emotions like anyone else!

Congratulations on the book George!

Watch the exciting moment Myth Buster George unboxed his picture book, 'Why Not?' which is out on 14 March, 2024.

'Why Not?' touches on George’s life and experiences and features characters using various forms of communication ranging from Makaton to using an eye gazer. The book is fully illustrated and features George as a child with his real-life family and friends. It has been written alongside Claire Taylor and illustrated by Tim Budgen.

Chromosome 21

Most people have two copies of chromosome 21, while those with three copies have Down syndrome. That is why World Down Syndrome Day is marked on 21 March each year.

Please donate £2.10 or even £21.00 to help us support people with a learning disability like Down syndrome.

“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.”
