Any teenage pop fan during the naughties will remember this.

“15/06/85, making me a Gemini. Wait, what date of birth did I say?”

These were the famous words uttered by then-16-year-old Nadine Coyle when she appeared on Irish Popstars in 2001.

She had the entire country rooting for her to find her passport to prove that she was 18 like she had said in auditions. Later, it emerged that she was in fact only 16, and therefore couldn’t become a member of the band Six.

Here, 26-year-old Ruth Jephson performs her skit of the moment that had the nation holding its breath 15 years ago.
