Would you be able to pick out lesser known members of S Club Juniors and Blazin' Squad today?

That's the task presented to Ant & Dec during this weekend's episode of Britain's Got More Talent, when presenter Stephen Mulhern gets them to play a special version of Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

After watching a snippet of S Club Juniors' 'One Step Closer' music video, Ant has to pick out singer Stacey McClean from a lineup of five women.

Here's a clue - you may recognise the real McClean from her appearance on The X Factor back in 2009, when she made it to Dannii Minogue's final six in Dubai.

Dec is faced with a more difficult task when he's asked to find Blazin' Squad's Mc Freak, who is today better known by his real name Oli Georgiou. Can you pick out the real Mc Freak?

Britney Spears cut short an interview in tears; where-are-they-now mainstay Preston flounced out when Amstell mocked his wife Chantelle Houghton. Noel Fielding told the press Amstell “ruined” Buzzcocks by being too abusive.
