Britain's Got Talent child star Jack Carroll unrecognisable as acting career goes from strength to strength

BRITAIN'S Got Talent child star Jack Carroll won the hearts of the nation with his hilarious stand-up routines and is still making us laugh eight years on.

Jack was only 14-years-old when he competed in the seventh series of theITV talent show, finishing as the runner-up.



His career has gone from strength to strength, with an impressive acting career and is set to appear in the theatres.

Jack, who has cerebral palsy, has since landed a string of acting roles in popular TV shows.

Before finding fame on BGT, comedian Jason Manford saw a video of him performing at his parent's wedding anniversary and invited the teen to give a short performance at one of his gigs.

He became an instant hit on BGT, with the judges voting him through and even came back for BGT: The Champions in 2019.

Comedian and fellow judge David Walliams offered Jack a part in his BBC One sitcom, Big School as a character named Dean.

He then landed his a role in Sky 1's comedy show Trollied, playing a character named Harry.

After four years on the show, Jack went onto appear on other popular shows including an episode of Doctors in 2015 and Father Ted in 2021.

He also bagged roles in 4 O'Clock Club and Eaten by Lions, as well as CBBC appearances on The Dog Ate My Homework and Sam & Mark's Big Friday Wind-up.

Despite a successful acting career, Jack has continued stand-up with appearances on Sunday Night at the Palladium, Live at the Apollo and Jason Manford's It's a Funny Old Week.

He also recently starred on an episode of Complaints Department with Jason Manford, Sara Pascoe an Dane Baptiste.

The 22-year-old will be heading out on tour as part of a stage show Cured, a play about a religious pilgrimage.

He will play a atheist with a disability and joins a Church trip to France to try and get closer with a girl he likes.

The show will be opening in Liverpool next year.

Jack has also starred alongside Asim Chaudhry in People Just Do Nothing and Johnny Vegas in the comedy film Eaten by Lions.
