Lorraine Kelly looked unrecognisable in a throwback video shared by This Morning.
The 61 year old appeared on ITV to speak to hosts Phillip Schofield, 59, and 40 year old Holly Willoughby about her new podcast with daughter Rosie, 26.
While reflecting on her history within the industry, a series of clips came onto the screen from 1994 of Lorraine at the age of 36 with her then-newborn baby girl.
Rosie may now be an adult, but Lorraine hasn't aged a day, still even sporting a similar hair style.
In one video she sports dark brown short hair with a fringe and wears an oversized black shirt with a blue and red vest on as she cradles her little one.
A second sees her dressed in a green shirt with a wide collar as she sports a pair of clear-framed glasses.
The footage shows the star's hair styled with a side parting while she wears minimal makeup.
Speaking about that time of her life, Lorraine told Holly and Phillip how she was told she would "never make it" in the television industry due to her accent.
"I was told at the time by GMTV not to come back," she explained. "But, yeah, they told me not to come back."
Lorraine went on: "That was a real sliding door moment because what happened was, I ended up getting my own show because of that.
"Because there was a mother and baby company that wanted us to do specials on GMTV, which I did."

Clearly shocked, Phillip then reiterated: "But you were told though that you were never going to make it on TV."
To which Lorraine replied: "Phillip, I was told that.
"That was the head of the BBC – BBC Scotland at the time.
"I thought he was bringing me into his office to tell me I got a job as a reporter and he just said, 'You'll never make it in television because of your accent. You'll have to go to elocution lessons.'
"But that was ages ago, that was 1984."
Phillip then revealed: "We just heard that the same man told Martin Frizell, our editor, that he would never make it either. So what rubbish advice, he knew nothing!"
