Fans of Holly Willoughby have been left flabbergasted by a throwback clip to her time on Holly & Stephen's Saturday Showdown.
The This Morning presenter, now 39, appeared on the Saturday morning's children's show from 2004 to 2006 alongside fellow ITV regular Stephen Mulhern, which was previously called Ministry of Mayhem.
Now, in an old clip that has been uploaded to both Instagram and TikTok, Holly can be seen in a foxy Father Christmas outfit that included a strapless red dress and layered hair for a festive special.
Wearing a garish Christmas jumper, Stephen, now 43-years-old, hands a present to Holly and says: "Here's the deal. If you open it you must wear it for the whole show."

Then Stephen leaned in to kiss her on the lips, with Holly responding: "No! Stephen, you don't count!"
Stephen replied: "What do you mean, I don't count? Whoever you are under the mistletoe with you must kiss".
