Jess previously wrote on social media: "So I've recently celebrated by 19th birthday and after a lot of thought, I've decided it's time to tell everyone.

"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."

The Teletubbies official Twitter account clarified who was in the picture, writing: "This is the original Sun Baby, Jess Smith, with our new Sun Baby, Berry! Seeing Jess all grown up makes us feel old too!"

Talking previously about how she landed the role, Jess said: "I was being weighed at the hospital.

"My mum took me and it just happened to be the same time that the producer of the old series had come in and wanted the hospital to get in contact with them if they'd seen any smiley babies.

"It was just a case of sitting in front of a mirror and a camera and my dad playing with toys and race cars and that sort of thing to try and get me to laugh at the camera."
