Former Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley has shared an unrecognisable throwback picture of herself from before she joined the ITV soap.
The 37-year-old star was doing a Q&A with her fans on Instagram Stories on Tuesday evening.
However, fans of Catherine were more interested in seeing old photos of the star and her weight loss journey.
One fan asked: “Do you have any more photos from your incredible weight loss journey?”
The mum-of-one then shared a picture of herself alongside a pal outside a theatre.
However, the star looked unbelievably different to how she is now.
In the picture, Catherine had her hair tied back, minimal makeup and was a size 22.
Catherine, who is now married to fitness consultant Tom Pitfield, 35, previously revealed she lost six stone in weight.
She lost the staggering amount before joining the cobbles and playing likeable barmaid Eva Price.
Catherine then went on to lose another two stone months after giving birth to her baby boy Alfie in 2015.
The soap star revealed that she went from a size 22 to a size 8-10.

She admitted that getting into shape had transformed her whole life and her outlook.
Earlier this year, the actress went into detail about she was motivated to get fit.
During a Instagram fan Q&A, Catherine told her fans: “I couldn't walk up the stairs without gasping for breath.
“I had zero energy and my skin was terrible. Educating myself on nutrition was the best thing I ever did.”
Catherine went on to say that she struggled with her weight as a teen and it wasn’t until a director told her she was “too fat to play a leading lady" that she decided to make a change.
It comes as she was also asked if she would ever join X-rated website OnlyFans.

Celebs such as reality star Kerry Katona, Love Island star Megan Barton-Hanson and Hollywood actress Bella Thorne have all signed up to the subscription only site.
However, Catherine soon laughed the idea off and joked: “No. Come on. I don’t want to put people off their dinner. She breast fed, babe. They’re not the same.”
Catherine was also asked about what it was like taking on the role of Eva Price on Coronation Street.
The actress was asked: “Do you really speak like Eva or do you have a totally different voice?”
Catherine cheekily responded: ”I am Mancunian. Eva was also Mancunian. But I played on it with Eva. I did make her slightly more Noel Gallagher than I am.”
