An amazing musician with a canny talent for singing and playing on a ukulele and [acoustic guitar]( while riding a unicycle is unable to show off his skills to a TV audience because of the red tape surrounding health and safety. George Britcher, 21, whose stage name is Guitar George, was hoping to appear on Don't Stop Me Now, Sky 1's new talent show, but was told he couldn't go on, reported Norwich Evening News 24. He said about six days ago he received an email in his inbox from Sky 1. Anticipating good news, he was devastated to find they were getting in contact to inform him he could no longer be on the show. The email explained that because the stage is nine-feet off the ground, his performance is just far too risky. Speaking to the online news provider, he said: "I was on Dancing on Ice before and if I can do my act on ice I would have thought I could do it on this show. I would have liked for it to have been my call whether I took part in the show or not." Matt Gleeson, from Peterborough, recently revealed he has one of the best jobs in the world – he repairs famous musicians' guitars. Buy A Bass Guitar Now  ADNFCR-2133-ID-800721357-ADNFCR
