Framing Britney Spears, the documentary that delves into the #FreeBritney movement, has been at the centre of internet chatter since its release, and will soon be available to stream in the UK.

The one-off Hulu special charts the singer's rise to fame, as well as the highs and lows of her private life, which eventually resulted in a conservatorship: a legal arrangement that gave her father, Jamie Spears, control of her finances and personal decisions.

While watching the documentary, you might've been left wondering how old Britney was at various stages throughout Framing Britney Spears, such as when she released her first single, when she married Kevin Ferderline, and when she was involved in an altercation with a paparazzi.
