TV star looks adorable in throwback school photo from their childhood – but can you guess who it is?

A star’s uncle took a trip down memory lane on Friday as he shared a throwback childhood snap of his celebrity niece with her former Junior school.

The childhood picture of one of Britain’s best-loved TV stars is now being used by Bishop’s Waltham Junior School’s headteacher to inspire pupils as part of a project.

Headteacher Darren Campbell hopes that showing the young pupils the childhood snap of the celebrity will teach them that they can achieve anything.

The star, now 52, attended the school from 1977 to 1981 when it was under a different name and was classmates with some of the current pupil’s parents.

As part of a project to inspire the current pupils, Mr. Campbell launched an appeal to find photos of former pupils.

Guess the celebrity: A star’s uncle took recently shared a throwback childhood snap of his celebrity niece with her former Junior school. But can YOU guess who the celebrity is?

And he was reportedly stunned when the celebrity’s uncle sent in a photo of her during her time at the school.

One clue is the girl in the photo grew up to become a judge on a hit television talent show competition.

The media personality has gone on to become a co-host on the Heart Breakfast radio show and recently starred in a comedy TV series.

Have you guessed yet?…. It’s Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden.

The media personality, 52, who recently starred in Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job comedy TV series, looked adorable in the snap wearing a red school uniform.

And the star, who looks almost unrecognisable in the snap, can be seen posing for her school photo while boasting a wide tooth-gapped grin.

The throwback childhood snap comes after Amanda recently suffered a ‘Marilyn Monroe’ moment as she accidentally flashed her bottom while filming in Italy with Alan Carr.

The presenter and the comedian, 46, recently spent three months renovating flats in the medieval town of Salemi for BBC show Amanda and Alan: The Italian Job.

With the duo’s Sicilian flat now set to be sold for Children In Need, Amanda celebrated the sale by sharing a blooper clip.

She looked incredible in a white tea dress with a summery lemon print and matching gingham headscarf.

But things didn’t go to plan when the floaty number got taken by a strong gust of wind, resulting in Amanda flashing her kickers at Alan.

‘You can see everything!’ Alan shouted as he attempted to pull her dress back down as they walked around the town.

‘I know!’ Amanda replied.

Alongside the video, she penned: ‘To Celebrate- here’s a blooper reel of Alan and Amanda’s #Italianjob last ep tonight on @bbc or whole series on @bbciplayer.

‘Our beautiful apartment is for sale. All proceeds go to @bbccin @comicrelief all the details are in my stories.’

After buying the two flats for a euro each, the pair documented the renovation process of knocking them together on the show.

Amanda and Alan tackled the property from the ground up and threw themselves at DIY jobs, from plastering to plumbing.

The stunning flat is listed on Rightmove with the description: ‘The three balconies offer breathtaking views of the landscape, making this the perfect spot to watch the sunset.

‘It also comes with a shared, walled courtyard, perfect for al fresco dining or just enjoying the Mediterranean sunshine.’

In the last episode, the pals admire their work after tackling a bedroom and bathroom each and the living room and kitchen together.

The actress says: ‘It’s gorgeous! Even though our tastes are very different, it’s got a really lovely flow. I feel a bit sad it’s done. I really love it.’

The show has drawn in 4.5 million viewers, and there are now reports that the BBC is planning a second series in a different location next year.

A source told The Mirror: ‘BBC bosses have been thrilled. The warmth and humour of their friendship as they’ve got stuck into DIY, design, and the Sicilian lifestyle has proved to be a big hit.’

Amanda previously spoke about how The Italian Job was born out of her desire to do something nice for her close pal Alan.
