St Trinian's Class of 2007: Where are they now?

St Trinian's

Think back to 2007. A year when Skins was just starting out, Ugg boots were uber cool, and MySpace still felt modern.

And it was exactly 10 years ago today (on 21 December 2007) that a bunch of unruly schoolgirls, and even more unruly teachers, barged their way onto the cinema screen in the shape of St Trinian's.

The film's box office success helped to launch the careers of many well known faces.

So where are the actresses who made up the St Trinian's Class of 2007 now? And where are the characters they played most likely to have ended up?
