But now, this Noughties gang have well and truly cast aside the trademark looks of their younger years.

Adele has lost seven stone and worked with a personal trainer
After her divorce from husband Simon Konecki last year, she lost seven stone on the trendy Sirtfood Diet and worked with a personal trainer to stay in shape.
On Saturday, Adele, 32, joked to SNL viewers: “I know I look really different since you last saw me.
“But actually because of all the Covid restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and only bring half of me – and this is the half I chose.”

The 42-year-old now loves to show off her svelte figure, which she says is down to exercise and not counting calories.
In 2018 she posed nude to celebrate her impending 40th birthday – and spoke up when trolls told her to “Put it away”.
Myleene, who had her third child last year, shot back: “My body has made two amazing children, I’m nearly 40 years old, I can play the piano – you can say whatever you like to me but can you play a Rachmaninoff concerto?”

WHEN she auditioned for ITV’s Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, a baby-faced Cheryl was complimented on her beauty.

And Geordie Cheryl, 37, says the biggest changes came after having son Bear in 2017.
She said: “My whole body, even my face – everything’s changed since Bear was born. But I feel like I’m better than who I was.
“I don’t care what my body looks like in that respect. I’m not obsessive about it. I created a life! I’m amazed by myself.
“And I’m kinder to myself because of it. I focus less on my insecurities, because they’re so much less relevant.”

IN the early 2000s, actress and singer Kelly was known for her outrageous looks and raucous partying.
But before going into rehab in 2017 she says she told her brother Jack: “I don’t want to be a fat, drunk loser any more. I want to be a skinny winner.”

Since then she has managed to give up drink and drugs and embrace a healthy lifestyle – and it shows.
Kelly, 35, lost five stone through exercising and, unapologetically, having weight-loss surgery.
She said: “I did the gastric sleeve. All it does is change the shape of your stomach.
“I will never, ever, ever lie about it, ever. It is the best thing I have ever done.”

The mum of two said: “Style and music have always gone hand in hand.
“But I’m not really into one specific type of music, so maybe that’s why I dress completely different all the time.”
In a magazine shoot at the weekend, 35-year-old Lily showed her glamorous side while talking about her marriage to Stranger Things actor David Harbour.
She said: “He’s sober. I’m sober. We get up early. We do stuff with the kids.”

ONCE a kids’ TV presenter, in 2005 Fearne made the awkward transition to become a Radio 1 DJ.
And despite admitting, “My fashion was utterly horrendous,” the 39-year-old mum of two has found her place as a fashionista.

Fearne, who is also a mental health advocate with her podcast Happy Place, says the key to looking good is exercise, healthy eating and buying well-made but simple wardrobe staples.
She said: “I can’t shop like I did in my 20s, when I’d buy cheap, bad-quality novelty dresses to wear once without knowing or caring where or how they were made.
“Now, I buy way less. And hardly ever, in fact.”
