It's been 12 years since Connie Talbot won the hearts of the nation by singing her way to the runner-up spot on the first series of Britain's Got Talent, aged just 6.

Now in her late teens, she has shown how grown up she has become thanks to a series of photos and videos on her Instagram and YouTube pages in recent years.

And now, she's making a TV comeback. Connie will return to where it all began in the first episode of Britain's Got Talent: The Champions.

She came second to winner Paul Potts in the first series of Britain's Got Talent, and so wasn't awarded a recording contract at first.

Speaking about her disappointment, Connie later revealed: "I think I was too little to be upset about not being given a record deal. I just wanted to go on the show and meet Simon [Cowell].

"I wasn’t upset by it at all. You would have thought Simon would be scary but he was sweet."

We're predicting a big future for Connie after this!
