It has been two decades since Britney Spear's hit song 'Oops!...I Did It Again' was released - and the pop star has marked its 20th anniversary on Instagram.

In a post to her 23.7m fans, the pop star, 38, has revealed that the music video for the track - which reached number one in 15 countries during the year 2000 - had been an uncomfortable one to film.

Captioning an image of her from the shoot, she wrote: "Oops!....how did 20 years go by so fast?!??! I can't believe it.

The song was part of a record-breaking album - of the same title - released in May 2000.

It received the highest debut-week sales by a female artist, a feat only overtaken 15 years later by Adele's '25'.

Britney released her first song, '...Baby One More Time' in September 1998.

It comes after Hugh Grant revealed - in another recent fashion throwback moment - that ex-girlfriend Liz Hurley's 'That Dress' was chosen as a snub to designers.

The model, 54, turned heads when she wore a now-iconic daring black gown, held together by oversized gold safety pins, to the premiere of Four Weddings And A Funeral with the actor, then 33, in 1994.

Now Grant has revealed that his unknown 28-year-old date - who accompanied him to the launch of the film, which made him a household name, in London's Leicester Square - that she put on the low-cut dress after being snubbed by a string of top designers.

In a BBC documentary, he explained that she had called up several fashion houses in the hope they would lend her something to wear to the glamorous event - however they refused, claiming they hadn't heard of her.

When Liz stepped out onto the red carpet in a safety pin Versace gown, she sent photographers into a frenzy - and the frock has proceeded to influence the fashion industry ever since.
