Johnny Vaughn. Denise Van Outen. 1998 seems like a different world.

Even the biggest stars have to start out somewhere, and for Tom Hardy one of those starts was taking part in The Big Breakfast's (RIP) male modelling competition which is cringe for several reasons that you'll see for yourself below. There's the fashions of the time (grim), the model walking, the looks to camera, Johnny's description of Hardy reading like a Blind Date profile (he's a Virgo drama student who loves Eddie Izzard etc.) and just all of it really.

He must be raging YouTube exists.

Hey, at least he won (which means hopefully he got some cash out of it).
