X Factor’s Sam Callahan Details Violent Past: ‘I Was Held Down & Kicked In The Face’

He’s the Pop sensation on course to take this year’s ‘X Factor UK’ by force and by storm.

However, in a new interview given by Sam Callahan, he has revealed that he wasn’t always as celebrated as he is today, detailing a number of violent attacks he suffered at the hands of bullies during his formative years.

Read below…

He explained:

“I got pretty badly bullied at my first secondary school, so had to leave there and I went to the Sylvia Young stage school. It was both verbal and physical. I got really badly beaten up. I was quite small and had really blond spiked hair and blue eyes, and I think they wanted to knock me down a peg or two.

‘We had to get the police involved once – when I was 12 a 16-year-old held me down while his mate kicked me in the face with his football boots. We called the police but we didn’t press charges.”

“I’ve always wanted to do music and perform, and I stood out. They used to call me gay, but it was as much me fighting back that got me in trouble because I really stuck up for myself. Since I went on the show, quite a few of the bullies have got back  in touch with me, as if nothing  had happened.”

‘They sent messages and just acted as if we were old friends and should meet up. I’m a lot older now – I try not to hold grudges.”

    He’ll CERTAINLY be getting my vote.

  10. Charlie October 13, 2013

    He’s going to be a big star! He cant sing and dance so the worlds his oyster. The headline is so misleading

    • 1D>>>>YourLife October 13, 2013

      He can sing.

      • DONT COME FOR ME UNLESS I SEND FOR YOU October 13, 2013

        sorry he cant

  11. ANON October 13, 2013

    My my my, now what do we have here?
    The fact that TGJ chose him out of all the people on the show tells me that he’s going to go a long way, not because he can sing but because Syco wants to him to. He’s probably been offered a deal already and Sony have probably asked TGJ to start writing about him to make him seem more cool.

    He’s not good looking, very basic.

    • TurntUp4Cici October 13, 2013

      Basic. Just like Lana’s lip surgery.

      • AubreyOSlay October 13, 2013

        Basic like Lana’s career.

  13. DagenhamDavina October 13, 2013

    Show’s been on for one night and he has his own thread here ALREADY? Hmmm, guess we’ll be seeing him in the finals.

  14. La Guida October 13, 2013

    You haven’t noticed how it all works by now.
    TGJ clearly have industry links who tell them which singers are going to have the most money put behind them. So they force them down our throats until their readers like them even before their first singles come out. I live in Newark and I am TELLING you that the only reason people know who Rita Ora is in the US is because of this website.
    I am not kidding. Nobody in the US cares about her but this website keeps pushing her like she was a major international star so that people would THINK she was and it seems to be working now.
