GMB’s Charlotte Hawkins looks almost unrecognisable in unearthed throwback clip

Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins looks almost unrecognisable as ITV bosses shared a 90s throwback clip of the blonde bombshell at the beginning of her journalism career.

During Thursday’s instalment of the popular breakfast show, the blonde bombshell, 47, presented the show alongside Ben Shepherd as she replaced long-standing host Kate Garraway.

This week, the TV presenter has stepped in for the long-standing host as she continues to help her husband Derek Draper who was rushed into hospital earlier this month after his health took a “serious turn for the worse.”

Towards the end of the show, the dynamic duo went on to welcome actor and director Dexter Fletcher onto the show, where the mum-of-one thanked him for inspiring her to follow a career path in journalism.

As they welcomed the 56-year-old Snatch actor onto the show, she explained to the Hollywood star how his show 1989 comedy show Press Gang was the nudge she needed to start her broadcast career as a newsreader.

Charlotte told the actor: “I was saying earlier that I owe you a thank you because I was such a huge fan of press gang and for me that was what made me want to be a journalist.

“Now I'm taking you back in time now but it was such an influential programme, wasn’t it?”

Flattered at her compliment, the actor explained how he still remains proud of the BBC One show today, adding: “I was very proud of that and I'm sure Steven is and a lot of the other guys as well.”

It was at this point that ITV bosses flashed a throwback clip of the blonde beauty on the show, as Ben shared his surprise at her TV segment from the 1990s.

The Tipping Point host quipped: “There's a very young Charlotte, this is what you inspired Dexter” as the loving mum cringed, saying: “Yes I know, back in the day you see.”

The director couldn’t help but chuckle at the unearthed clip as he pondered if she had also taken inspiration from his full head of short curly hair.

She could be seen sporting a 90s cropped bob which featured a side parting and a sweeping fringe across her forehead.

For the recoding, the TV star opted for a bright red blazer that included striking shoulder pads which she layered over a black minidress and knee-high boots.

He joked: “Well I can see the influence there!” as Charlotte admitted: “I'd gone a bit more Dexter Fletcher with the hair there haven’t I?”
