    British teen crowned Europe’s best Elvis Presley impersonator after starting aged 4

    A British teenager has been crowned Europe’s best Elvis impersonator years after he did his first impression in a jumpsuit made by his nan.

    Talented Emilio Santoro, 19, was introduced to ‘The King’ by his grandparents when he was a toddler.

    He then learned to copy his mannerisms aged just four by studying videos of Elvis.

    Emilio performed across the UK as a schoolboy and has now been crowned European Elvis Tribute Artist Champion.

    “To be crowned champion is just amazing,” said the teen, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.

    “It’s only just started sinking in now.

    “Everyone always says life is too short, follow your dreams, and it couldn’t be any more true really,” he said.

    “I had a jumpsuit that my nan and auntie put together for me and ever since then I’ve wanted to pursue this as a career.

    “I had a dream since I was a young age that I wanted to be on the stage.

    “At first I was nervous to pursue that dream but luckily I have a family behind me and since then I’ve never looked back.”

    The teenager’s next show is in his hometown, ahead of performances in Germany, America and Canada, as well a UK tour in November.
