    This Student Claims She Was The Laughing Sun Baby In The "Teletubbies"

    Jess Smith decided to break cover while making friends at university.

    Remember the giggling baby who appeared as the sun on the kids TV show Teletubbies?

    Well apparently, this is what she looks like now:

    The newspaper said Smith wrote on Facebook:

    So I've recently celebrated my 19th birthday and after a lot of thought, I've decided it's time to tell everyone.

    I used to hide it but after a lot of encouragement from my friends at university, I've gained the confidence to come out with it.

    I am the sun from Teletubbies. There has been quite a few people pretending to be "the sun" but only I could tell you the real story.

    She reportedly also uploaded this letter from the producers of the show to her parents:
