BBC Breakfast's Nina Warhurst looks unrecognisable in throwback pics from Casualty role | The Sun

NINA Warhurst has shared jaw-dropping throwback pics from her time as an actor on Casualty during the 90s.

The BBC Breakfast presenter once played a "spiky teen" on the medical soap back in 1997 – and she looks completely unrecognisable in newly-surfaced images.

Despite her impressive broadcasting career, Nina's acting credit in the Christmas special of Casualty was her first on-screen role.

Nina took to Twitter on Tuesday to celebrate the BBC's 100th birthday with a series of throwback snaps from her Casualty stint.

The star looked dramatically different as a youngster, especially given the fact that her character landed herself in hospital with several cuts across her cheek.

Alongside the archive snaps, Nina wrote: "Happy Birthday BBC! Howling at finding my first appearance with Auntie.

"Casualty… a spiky teen in polyester, keeping boys a secret, causing parents endless headaches – very method for me in 1997."

Nina later poked fun at her younger self in a follow-up tweet that read: "And if you didn’t over pluck your eyebrows creating a vast chasm between the two, were you even there in the 90s?"

Nina's BBC Breakfast pal Naga Munchetty was left thrilled by her colleague's acting career and replied: "Love this! Who knew?"

Her co-host Jon Kay demanded footage as he chimed in: "This is true TV gold. Where is the actual tape? We need to see it…"

And former anchor Dan Walker, who now works at 5 News, quipped: "No hi-vis?"

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays from 6am on BBC One.
