20 people who secretly posted hilarious photos of their partners as kids

Who gets to see our childhood photos is a delicate subject. They're often a huge source of embarrassment, particularly when it comes to our hairstyles or 'sense' of fashion and things can only get worse if they fall into the wrong hands.

The problem nowadays is social networks - in just one click your worst childhood photo is shared across the globe and destined to spend eternity out there in the ether.

Suffice to say we've all got cheesy photos hidden away in family albums - a crowning adolescent moment, wearing an awful jumper that our grandma knitted for Christmas, having a complete meltdown, terrible year book photos, showing off our latest 80's hairstyle...

Here are 20 childhood photos that were secretly shared by the one person these people trust - their partners! Hopefully none of these have led to the divorce court, but still we highly recommend that you keep yours locked away in a safe!
