What was their favourite subject at school? And how cool did they really look? Let's find out...

Behold, class of 2018/19.

To celebrate the launch of this year’s School Reports, we took some of the key figures from the agencies back to school.

While there, we asked people to cast their minds back to their school days, with some surprising results. Whose pants fell down during the 100m race on sports day? Who was suspended for smoking weed at the school fair? Who got so drunk that they failed to turn up for the opening night of the school play, in which they were the lead? Watch the videos to find out.  

What was your greatest achievement?

What was your most embarrassing moment?

Who was your favourite teacher?

What was your favourite subject?
