Celebs when Young… Can you Tell who it is?

Lots of grown-up V.I.Ps started out as kids; searching the interweb brings up many well-known examples. But there are some we don’t reckon were ever that young and possibly, like the nectarine, simply came about from a hairless mutation of the peach.

One of the central questions is how people emerge from early lifeforms to become celebrities but let’s not waste our breath looking for an answer today. Just put down your scalpels and forklift trucks and try to guess who these young celebs grew up to be. We’ve even added a clue for you and the answers are at the end of the post (because we’re good like that).

Can you guess who this young celeb is - Jimmy Carr

8. 8 out of 10 cats love their comedians to have a dead-pan delivery and funny laugh, apparently. But they draw the line at this one’s involvement with off-shore shell companies.

9. Bestowed with more awards than you could shake a doomed passenger liner at, this English rose’s talents know no bounds. But she won’t stand on a red carpet and talk about how much money she earns.
