Here’s some '90s nostalgia for you— remember the giggling sun from the Teletubbies? Well, 18 years later, and she has finally revealed herself for the first time, according to the Telegraph. Check out what she looks like now below.
First year dance education student Jess Smith received an assignment at her new university: tell your classmates something they would never guess about you. Afterwards, Smith decided to officially reveal the almost two decade old secret through Facebook.
“So I’ve recently celebrated my 19th birthday and after a lot of thought, I’ve decided it’s time to tell everyone,” types Smith. “I used to hide it but after a lot of encouragement from my friends at university, I’ve gained the confidence to come out with it. I am the sun from Teletubbies. There has been quite a few people pretending to be ’the sun’ but only I could tell you the real story.”
