Apologies in advance if this makes you feel old...

It's been 11 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 aged 17, she has shown how grown up she has become in a series of photos and videos on her Instagram page.

Who hates fly away hairs? 🙋🏼‍♀️

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."
