The aim of the craze is to show how much you've changed over the past ten years and now even Meadowhall have jumped on the craze. 

The shopping centre uploaded a picture of its interior from ten years ago and there are some big differences. 

Meadowhall has recently undergone a £100 million refurbishment of the centre with a new look, new stores and new brands. 

The refurbishment created four separate districts while £40 million was pumped into shop upgrades by companies including Apple.

As a result of all the changes, it's little surprise that the shopping centre looks much more modern and brighter compared to its decade old image.

The caption read: 'Now lighter, brighter & spacious with more brands than ever! It's fair to say, we've got better with age. #10YearChallenge"

Meadowhall opened in 1990 and was created on former industrial land after the big steel factories which once dominated the Lower Don Valley fell into decline.

According to a 2015 report by PricewaterhouseCoopers, over the past 25 years the mall has contributed £4.4 billion to the city region, generating a further £1.9 billion for the wider UK economy.
