Britain’s Got Talent star singled out

GRANDMASTER Fred, Loughborough’s talented breakdancing pensioner, has abandoned his dream of body popping his way into the pop charts.
Fred Bowers had planned on releasing a hip hop single, following in the footsteps of last year’s winner George Sampson.
But following national press articles claiming that the 73-year-old star of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, who Simon Cowell described as “brilliant” after he auditioned in Birmingham, was a “fakedancer” who claims disability allowance, the pensioner has shelved the plan.
Rumours had circulated in the town that Fred had already signed a deal with Decca Records, who have had artists including The Rolling Stones, Adam Ant and The Smurfs on their roster over the years.
Grandmaster Fred will take part in the show’s live semi finals on Thursday, May 28.
