Ruth Langsford, 57, laughed as husband Eamonn Holmes shared an adorable snap from her childhood as they presented This Morning today.
Ruth could be seen wearing a sweet nurse costume as she played with a brand new doll, surrounded by new presents in a nostalgic Christmas snap.
Her coiffed blonde locks were nowhere to be seen, instead, she sported a very short fringe under her cap.
The presenter was years away from her characteristically polished make-up look, being seen instead with cute freckles peppering her nose and cheeks.
The ITV favourite cringed with embarrassment when her other half, 57, flashed the image up on screens for the nation to see, as he called her “simple”, mocking her open mouth.
“That awful haircut,” he continued, as Ruth exclaimed: “Look at my freckles like cornflakes!”
That was one of the happiest moments in my life,” she said, explaining about the Christmas presents in the picture, pointing out a farmyard that her father had made from scratch for her.
The nurse’s outfit, she also admitted, she had asked Father Christmas to bring.
“That’s all lovely, but whoever carried out that haircut, were they arrested?” Eamonn joked, as Ruth laughed at her unfortunate styling.
Tomorrow night, the This Morning host will take to the dance floor for the first live show of Strictly Come Dancing as she begins her campaign to take home the glitterball trophy.
This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
