THE cast of Fame Academy looked unrecognisable as they reunited a whopping 20 بعد سنوات من العرض.
Taking to social media David Sneddon, who won the first ever series of the BBC One music competition, posted some group snaps.
The famous faces reunited at a pub to celebrate the 20 year reunion of the hit show, and they all looked delighted as they got into their glam attire for the get-together.
While the ITV equivalent Pop Idol, was led by Simon Cowell and his bunch of harsh critics, BBC’s Fame Academy saw the smiley Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty take on hosting duties.
The participants would live together Big Brother style while being given training sessions by vocal coaches Carrie and David Grant.
David penned to fans: “So here’s a thing… it’s been 20 years since I took part in the BBC1 tv show Fame Academy and last night, for the first time since, we all got together for the 20 yr reunion, a stones throw away from actual house.
“There were tears and a LOT of laughs, and the fact we still all feel so close even though time and distance keeps us apart tells you that the show was a bit special.”
أضاف: “I love them all very deeply because you can’t go through an experience as surreal, مرعب, exciting and life defining (good and bad) like the one we all had without developing a bond for life.”
And if the rest of David’s caption was anything to go by, it was a boozy night to boot!
“However I got so drunk that I have experienced a mega hangover today the likes of which science has never seen. At one point whilst spread out on the couch my son asked me “are you going to die?” I thought I might,” the musician added.
Fans were delighted to see the reunion, with one person writing: “Probably still the best series of a tv show ever! I spent a LOT of money buying paper phone credit vouchers to vote.”

وأضاف آخر: “I absolutely loved this show! Can’t believe it was so long ago.”
And a third said: “Loved fame academy, I was a huge fan of the show… and you! Your song ‘ living a lie ‘ is still my favorite song of all time. Makes me feel incredibly old now!!!!!"
While there were some breakout stars from the show, there are others who have simply disappeared.
David was the first to win, and his debut album Seven Years – Ten Weeks reached number five in the UK Albums Chart.
And he went on to have a number one hit with the song Stop Living the Lie.
