Britain’s Got Talent’s Connie Talbot looks incredibly different on 18th birthday

Britain’s Got Talent sensation Connie Talbot rose to fame in 2007 after reaching the final of the very first series.

The adorable six-year-old girl that left Amanda Holden in tears and stunned fellow judges Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan is all grown up.

She became the talent show’s first child star, with her debut album Over the Rainbow selling 250,000 copies worldwide and reaching number one in three countries.

Connie looked unrecognisable during her appearance on today’s Lorraine on her 18th birthday.

The incredible singer spoke about her amazing rise to fame, becoming a big success in Asia and her generous charity work.

After watching her BGT audition clip, Connie said: “It’s really weird, it doesn’t feel like me. It just felt like a little girl. I had such a good time.”

Connie admitted she had no idea how big the show would become but was determined to impress Simon.

She made Lorraine Kelly giggle by confessing she practised singing on her X Factor karaoke machine.

She became a star in Europe, the US and across Asia where she had gained a huge fanbase thanks to YouTube clips of her early TV performances.

Connie followed that up with three more albums, with Beautiful World released in November 2012.

Back in 2010 Connie played on Chinese television to an audience of 400 million people and she even performed in front of world leaders at a concert to launch 2016’s G20 world summit in Seoul.

Connie gave money from her single to those affected by a ferry disaster in South Korea and has caught up with Simon at charity events.

On the future, she said: “I’m down in London a lot doing a lot of writing sessions so hopefully I can realise some new songs next year.”
