Good Morning Britain star looks unrecognisable in throwback TV clip – can you guess who? | The Sun

GOOD Morning Britain's Charlotte Hawkins looked unrecognisable in a throwback clip from 20 years ago.

The 46-year-old star wore her hair in a sleek bob and donned knee high boots while hosting ITV's Meridian Tonight in 2003.

GMB viewers got to see Charlotte in her twenties when she hosted the news programme before leaving in 2006 to become co-presenter of Sky's breakfast programme Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes.

The nostalgic moment came on GMB today when Charlotte revealed what inspired her to get into journalism while chatting to Hollywood director and actor Dexter Flexter.

She said: "I just want to reminise for a little while I owe you a thank you because I was such a huge fan of Press Gang and for me that is what made me want to be a journalist."

Press Gang was written my Steven Moffatt and was about a bunch of kids running a teenage newspaper.

Dexter, who starred in the CITV series, replied: "It's lovely and special when you meet journlists who say to you 'I write because of that I'm in this line of work because of that.'"

Charlotte was born in Chichester, West Sussex, and began her career as a newsreader for ITN in 1999 and also as a reporter for LBC Radio.

During her teens she had a job flipping burgers at Goodwood Racecourse, before studying English Literature at the University of Manchester and broadcast journalism the London College of Printing.
