Martine McCutcheon grew up on our screens, but before she ever appeared on telly in Bluebirds, or performing as 1/3 of teen girl band Milan, and long before she set foot in Albert Square, the actor worked as a child model. And one campaign was for none other than the iconic Tammy Girl brand.
The star delighted fans and followers on Instagram sharing a playful snap of herself as a wide eyed 11-year-old modelling for the brand back in 1987/8.
Pre-teen Martine is wearing a Sylvester cat sweatshirt, the popular Loony Tunes character, with a dark skirt and tights. Posing with two messy buns, and her hands up in a mock shock, 45 year-old-Martine was using the photo to illustrate her shock at where the nice weather had gone.
Writing in the caption; "Erm… Exsqueeze me guys… But where’s the sun gone?! 🤷🏻♀️☀️🤷🏻♀️ Me and my 11 year old self (modelling for Tammy girl) are a bit in shock - I thought it was meant to be lovely all week & it’s my birthday on Saturday! Let’s put it out there “Shine on Saturday! Shine on saturday!” 😆🙈💋🎁🎂🎈🥳 "
Martine, who turns 46 on Saturday 14 May, stirred up a lot of nostalgia with the 34 year old photo shoot, with the comments filling up with those who remembered the iconic brand.
One wrote: "😍❤️ Tammy girl was my ultimate favourite treat 😂🙌 not heard or seen that for years #blastfromthepast 👏❤️", while another commented: "Tammy Girl, that takes me back!!! THE place to shop! 😍"
And they're not wrong!
Of course a national treasure like Martine was the perfect model for a high street institution like Tammy Girl.
