William lives with his dad Matthew and mum Tracey in Fulwood and although he’s not three until January, his parents say he started with the moves even before he could walk.

“From the age of about 10 months he would sit moving to the beat of any music,” Tracey said. “Even now it could just be an advert and he will stop everything he’s doing and just start dancing. He has come so much further though, some of his moves are so funny but we have no idea know where they have come from or where he’s seen them!

“He certainly is an entertainer. Wherever we go, the supermarket, hospital, shops, he always gets stopped by someone because of his cheeky smile or people commenting on his dance moves. He’s extremely confident. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up on television doing acting or dancing.

“He’s always attracting people’s attention some way or another, he’s a delightful little boy, he really does make people happy. We have loads of videos of him singing and dancing.”
