Ah, results day. The memory of waiting to find out if all of your hard work, studying, stressing, and, erm, nervously sweating, had paid off will probably stick with everybody for the rest of our life.
Which is why we totally understand the actual anxiety you feel as the day looms, and then either the utter exhilaration at finding out that you have passed and are off to University… Or the downright dread, disappointment, and fear if you haven’t quite got the grades that you were hoping for.
Welp.

And if you are one of the disappointed folk today, then we seriously can’t stress enough how important it is for you not to worry – everything will turn out okay and to prove it, we have compiled a whole list of pretty bloomin’ awesome celebs who weren’t quite up to scratch when it came to school and education, but things turned out pretty good for them regardless.
We mean, obviously education is super, super important, but if you don’t get those all important grades it is definitely not the end of the world:

[…]Dougie Poynter

Let’s momentarily go back to the singers, McFly/ McBusted/ BusFly mega-babe Dougie Poynter joined the hugely successful band when he was just fifteen years old, recently revealing that he did so in order to support his mum and younger sister after his dad walked out on them.

Dougie doesn’t have any GCSEs, but does have number one albums, sell out tours, a modelling contract, an I’m A Celebrity crown, and an Ellie Goulding girlfriend under his belt, so he hasn’t exactly done badly.

Well McBusted isn’t like reformed as it didn’t exist as McBusted before but here’s what they say about the boys.

8. McBusted

McBusted have tasted major success
Not technically a reunion as the band hadn’t previously existed but they can’t be ignored.
The super-group which comprises of the four McFly band members and their former heroes Busted, minus Charlie Simpson, formed in 2013 and tickets soon sold out for their 11-stop tour. It was extended to 34 nights and the group haven’t looked back as they supported world-beaters One Direction during 2014 and 2015.

After the raving credibility of Faithless and the wedding disco-style cheese of 80s Vs 90s, it was the turn of pop rockers McBusted to entertain on Lytham Green.

The six-piece supergroup, formed of Busted and McFly, raced through what felt like a greatest hits set which had fans of all ages bouncing in the Lytham Festival Arena.

From the opening strains of joint hit Air Guitar, to the closing bars of Star Girl – plus encore tracks Five Colours In Her Hair, Shine A Light and Year 3000, fans sang along throughout.

There’s no doubt this gang of mates have a ball on stage and that energy transferred into the audience.

Brief moments of banter reveal the friendships the two bands’ former members share as a single act. More of those laughs – albeit schoolboy in their humour – would surely have been welcomed from a Saturday night crowd out for a good time.

Among the non-musical highlights was a mini showcase of drummer Harry Judd’s Strictly Come Dancing champion credentials (he won, in a final at Blackpool Tower Ballroom, in 2011).

With bandmate Matt Willis, he raised Dougie Poynter aloft in a Dirty Dancing-inspired lift – backed by the 10,000-strong crowd singing (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life. And Busted’s James Bourne ranked it as his ‘all time highlight of any show’ on Twitter.

And the show, opened by Britain’s Got Talent singer Callum Scott, Irish boy band Hometown, and Say Something chart star Karen Harding, will certainly have marked its place in Lytham’s ‘all time highlights’ too.
