s&s logo
If you were to write a letter to your 16-year-old self, what would it say? In DEAR ME, some of the world's best loved personalities have written just such a letter.

They range from the compassionate to the shocking via hilarity and heartbreak, but the letters all have one thing in common: they offer a unique insight into the teenager who would grow up to be....

Stephen Fry, Alan Carr, Annie Lennox, Paul O'Grady, Jackie Collins, Fay Weldon, Peter Kay, Debbie Harry, Brenda Blethyn, Jonathan Ross, Liz Smith, Will Young, Alison Moyet, Rosanne Cash, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Yoko Ono and Emma Thompson... to name but a few!

I love this idea. I have no clue what I would tell myself, though. Sixteen was only seven years ago!
