Gallery: Our Top 10 (sometimes embarrassing) teenage crushes, then and now - from Leonardo DiCaprio to Charlie Simpson

It's nothing to be embarrassed about. OK, so we fancied Mr Belding from Saved By The Bell... So what?!

Maybe that's kind of embarrassing actually...

But remember when fancying someone was the most important thing in the whole entire world? Even more important than getting up on a Saturday morning in time to watch Live and Kicking with a bowl of Frosties.

Whether it was Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo and Juliet or Busted's Charlie 'Crazy Brows' Simpson you had the hots for, we all went cuckoo over our teenage crushes.

Jeez. The amount of glue we must have gone through making our Boy Meets World scrapbook...

Anywho, check out our gallery of heat's teenage crushes and be sure to let us know if we missed anyone out.

Tony, the talented one from East 17, always made us go weak at the knees when he tickled those ivories.

And unlike his bandmate Brian Harvey, Tony never ran himself over after eating too many of his nan's jacket potatoes.
