Talking of his rise to fame at such a young age he told Express.co.uk last month: “[It was] really mad actually because I was so young and dancing was my hobby, that was something I really loved to do, I went like once or twice a week or whatever it was.
“But it was almost like overnight because obviously, we entered the competition [Britain’s Got Talent].
“It was overnight that it went from my hobby to my job and like who has a job at like 12.
“But that’s the thing because I enjoy it so much, I never see that switch.”
Earlier this year Perri took the ice as he joined the 2020 line up of Dancing on Ice.
However, with his dancing background, Perri has since opened up on how he found the transition to ice difficult, saying: “It was a lot harder than I thought. I know that people probably thought that I would have it easy, you know? …Being a dancer.
“But I remember turning up to my first skating session and my coach saying to me ‘do you know what? It’s actually easier for me to teach someone from scratch rather than teach you’.
“You have almost got to unlearn and forget about everything you think you know, otherwise it won’t help you.”

He added: “If I’m on the floor and I fall over, I can catch myself in a certain way or like I have a contingency.
“On the ice, no, it doesn’t play any games. If you fall, you’re not saving yourself. It’s just going to hurt.”
This week Perri will take to the ice again as he joins Jamie Lomas, Bob Champion, Gareth Thomas, Jake Quickenden and Ashley Banjo to raise awareness for cancer on The Real Full Monty on Ice.
The dancer announced he would be a part of the show on his Instagram last week, saying: “Just smiling through the pain… Honestly feel nothing but honoured to be taking part in this years Real full Monty ON ICE!!
“It’s definitely been an experience to remember being amongst the most amazing group of people raising awareness for an amazing cause.
“Make sure you’re tuned in 14th December on ITV you don’t want to miss it!! (Tbh there’s not much to see it was pretty cold).”
