The comedian shared the art work he’d discovered with his followers saying: ‘Just found an old sketchbook from school. Very lol.’ 

Jack had covered the artefact with an intricate collage of various celebrity photos and animations, including Gwen Stefani and The Powerpuff Girls. 

The book contained an eclectic collection of showbiz caricatures, which he went on to explore in detail. 

‘Warning the next picture is SO cringe,’ Jack told his fans.

‘Remember I went to a boarding school in Wiltshire set up for sons of the clergy,’ he said before revealing a sketch of the American rapper Tupac Shakur smoking. 

Jack drew the artwork, titled ‘dedicated to Tupac’, while at Marlborough College, whose notable alumni also includes the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. 

‘She’s someone they like to talk about,’ Jack told The Sun in July.  

‘I’ve been sending them a letter each year saying maybe now it’s time to put me in the school prospectus or on the walls. I feel like I’m their dirty little secret,’ he said.

It’s surprising the prestigious school hasn’t made more of Jack’s time there, considering what he produced in art class.  

‘Obviously also drew this legend,’ he wrote beneath the next stunning portrait of ‘The Rock’ Dwayne Johnson. 

The comedian had sketched the actor in a pair of blacked-out shades next to a picture of a bull and his WWE catchphrase ‘Know Your Role.’ 

He then revealed he’d hilariously combined two very different musicians, John Lennon and Craig David, on the next double page spread.

‘Two musical icons – Lennon and David. (Yeah I have no idea why?!,)’ wrote the comedian in confusion at his younger self. 

Jack had drawn the hitmakers with ginormous heads and tiny bodies, before signing ‘To Jack, from John Lennon,’ as though he had received an autograph from The Beatles star.  

And it was clear the teenage school boy also had an interest in alluring female celebrities. 

‘I think I must have gone through puberty,’ wrote Jack beneath his drawing of a bikini-clad Cindy Crawford.

The lustful artwork didn’t stop there. 

‘Clearly quite horny drawing,’ wrote Jack beneath his sketch of the glamour model Jordan, aka Katie Price, wearing a Union Jack patterned bra.    

Amongst the musicians and the glamour models, Jack also noticed something that remind him of his father, Michael. 

‘This looks like a prototype poster for Travels with my Father,’  he wrote beneath a sketch of a man smoking a cigar and drinking wine in a dressing gown. 

Behind him, a butler with a uni-brow and a bow tie lurked menacingly near a cabinet of alcohol.

The trip Down Under proved fruitful for Jack as he met his now girlfriend, British model Roxy Horner, 29. 

Amid a whirlwind romance, the couple moved in together during the first lockdown after just two weeks of dating.
