George Sampson Chases Thief

Former Britain´s Got Talent  winner and Waterloo Road actor George Sampson ‘catches London thief’ while free running on South Bank.

Police involved praise the young hero. Chief Insp Roy Smith posted on Twitter “I was the police officer chasing and a big thank you to for your help”.

Sampson himself had only recently revealed an upcoming appearance in Emmerdale, playing a young character called Ryan, who’ll be appearing in scenes with Aaron Livesy and Robert Sugden.

Newcomer Ryan is described as a “lads’ lad” who interferes in other people’s business.
