Having bad day? If Britney can survive 2007, you can survive today!

Unless you are Peter Pan it is inevitable that we all have to grow up and this can be a tough time. The transition from child to adolescent to adult is a difficult journey, there are many tears, tantrums and acne breakouts along the way.

They say you become older and wiser and it is a dead cert that everyone makes mistakes along the way. As a child star you are exposed to the glamorous world of the celebrity and all the benefits associated with it. However, on the flip side you are forced to grow up in the glare of the public spotlight and it is a lot of pressure from a very young age.

We take a look at the child stars who have struggled to adjust to the real world post-child-stardom…

5. Christina Aguilera

Part of the infamous Mickey Mouse Club, Xtina has grown up in the spotlight and with a career spanning over two decades, she certainly has staying power. However, it hasn’t been all plain sailing for Miss Aguilera; cue chaps, Moulin Rouge, marriage, divorce and rumoured lesbian flings.

Her 2002 album, Stripped, showcased a raunchy Christina and she regularly dressed in skimpy clothes and behaved in a highly sexualised manner. In true former child star fashion, this was her way of showing the world that the former sweet and innocent Disney starlet was long gone!

There have been weight gains and extreme weight loss, her hair has been almost every colour in the rainbow and she has regularly featured in the worst dressed pages of celebrity magazines. Recently she seems to have cleaned up her act but her turbulent life suggests that it won’t be long before she returns to her Dirrrty ways!
