Britains Got Talent child stars Bars and Melody look unrecognisable in grown up snaps

Former Britain's Got Talent duo Bars and Melody are all grown up from their days as teenagers singing on stage for the nation's vote.

The talented pair won hearts with their bullying rap on the ITV talent show back in 2014, making it all the way to the final before losing out to musical group, Collabro.
