When you were Young

I recently came across a lovely book called Dear Me: A Letter to My Sixteen-Year-Old Self, where a group of popular personalities write to their teenage selves with advice, empathy and humour.


Also just discovered these old photos and got wondering what the bright young things below needed to hear back then, and whether they ever envisioned what they would become?


Stephen actually does feature in it. You can read his here


Fry is joined by Elton John, Annie Lennox, Alan Carr, Peter Kay, Debbie Harry, Jonathan Ross, Will Young, Alison Moyet, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Yoko Ono and Emma Thompson to name a few.


For me sixteen is a bit too recent…Maybe I’ll go the other way and write to my forty year old self!

I hope the Noisettes are still making fantastic music like this in twenty years time
