James Bond actor Daniel Craig and American singer Jennifer Lopez were once homeless, pupils from Queen's School discovered.

They are among a number of wealthy stars who fell on hard times at the start of their careers, the pupils were told in a talk explaining how unexpectedly homelessness can strike.

The millionaire actor was forced to 'sofa-surf' while he waited for the roles that would bring him fame and the American singer found herself with nowhere to live after falling out with her mother, a speaker from the charity Chester Aid to the Homeless told the Lower School pupils.

The talk launched a day of pupil workshops led by once-homeless artist Chris Goodwin who helped the girls create self-portraits in the style of Van Gogh and to write haiku poems about how it would feel to be homeless.

'They produced some wonderful, reflective verses' said a spokesman for the school.
