PICS: It's been 20 years since Gina G appeared on the Eurovision but would you recognise her now?

Anyone else feeling old?

It's been 20 years since Gina G sang at The Eurovision. She was an Australian-born singer who represented the UK in the 1996 Eurovision Song contest.

Gina's entry, Oh Ah, Just A Little Bit, was one of the catchiest and most memorable songs from all the UK entries down through the year.

However it failed to win the competition and she came in 8th position with 77 points. But the song went on to have great success in the UK, hitting the number one position on the charts.

And now, 20 years on, I'm not sure we would recognise. She no longer has her trademark red hair. She looks incredible, just not the Gina G we remember.

Interestingly or sadly, whichever way you want to look at it, 1996 was the last time we won the competition, let alone came close to winning it. Our entry from Eimear Quinn, The Voice, blew everyone away and we claimed the title.

We did come second the following year in 1997, but since then the majority of the years we've either failed to qualify for the final or we've placed outside of the top 10.
