Dancing With The Stars 2020: The Celebs Shared Their Gloriously Daggy High School Photos

Dancing With The Stars' Back To School special has provided us with a stunning photo album filled with awkward -- and not so awkward -- snaps of the celebs during their salad days.

The evening gave us a glimpse into the adolescent years of not just the dancing stars but the judges and hosts as well -- and they all had varying experiences as theatre nerds, footy stars, or musical virtuosos.

The seven celebrities and their professional dancers used these experiences of high school torment, or glory, to bring to life their teen years.

Honestly, we're just glad we got an excuse to rifle through their old year books.

Grant revealed he might have been used as the school toilet cleaner more than once but we bet his high school bullies aren't hosting as many TV shows as Grant is.

Amanda Keller

Amanda reported her high school formal date Scott for "crimes against fashion", which we'd have to disagree with. Bring back the puffy shirt!

Sharna Burgess

A classic early 2000s teen look for Ms Sharna Burgess, complete with razor thin brows and a sweeping fringe.

Looking like one of the Partridge Family kids, it's hard to imagine that sweet little boy giving anyone harsh notes on their foxtrot or cha cha.

Who would have thought that handsome dance judge was a ridiculously cute kid? We did.

While we understand the privacy of Ed's former classmates is being respected with the use of the blur tool, it really does make this picture look like evidence from a crime scene.

Dami apologised to her mum for all of the classes she skipped to hang out in the music room, but it was probably the best decision the professional singer and muso could have made.

Chloe said she had plenty of celebrity gossip from her time as a student at Malibu High in California, where she went to school with plenty of Hollywood kids.

While this photograph is already a 10/10 for Travis' bleach blonde hair, we were even more impressed after he revealed that he was responsible for making this gorgeous denim ensemble -- and score top marks for his creation.

Christian Wilkins was a massive theatre nerd in high school and we're so glad these photos exist.

Celia revealed that a few of the girls at her high school weren't particularly nice to her, and she channelled the hell out of that energy for her explosive routine to TLC's "No Scrubs".
