Britain's Got Talent's rarely seen child star Charlie Dixon unrecognisable 14 years after performing with Cheeky Monkeys

BRITAIN'S Got Talent star Charlie Dixon is unrecognisable 14 years after performing with cute dance duo Cheeky Monkeys.

The dancer and performer rose to fame after making it all the way to the final of the ITV competition alongside his pal Krista Hyatt.


Charlie, now 22, was just eight years old when he was seen performing tumbles, splits and flips on in a series of thrilling routines.

He and his then best pal Krista – known as the Cheeky Monkeys on the show – made it all the way through to the 2008 live final.

The pair kicked off the final show with their performance to Greece hit We Go Together, dressed as Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.

The adorable duo failed to make the top spot – clinched by fellow dancer George Sampson – but were part of the final six acts.

After melting the hearts of the nation, the pair went on to perform in New York on Maury Povich's World's Most Talent Kids on NBC.

Sadly, just years later, the dance duo went their separate ways.

But it hasn't stopped Charlie – who is now in his twenties and looks all grown up – from continuing to dance and perform.

The star is now an influencer on Instagram, sporting an impressive 60,000 followers – and is often seen holidaying in glam locations.

He is often seen posing poolside in sultry snaps on his Instagram, showing off his toned figure, as well as advocating for mental health.

Following Britain's Got Talent, Charlie was selected to be trained in the West End with hopes that he could be the next Billy Elliot.

Meanwhile, his former pal Krista went on to play Becky in Nativity! – a smaller acting part as a pupil from a rival school in the film.

While it appears Charlie has turned away from dancing, he is often seen posing in modelling shoots and promoting clothing and products.

Charlie isn't the only Britain's Got Talent star to be totally unrecognisable from their time on the show years ago.
