Loose Women stun viewers with throwback school photos

They had a blast from the past

Ruth Langsford and Janet Street-Porter were unrecognisable when they revealed their old childhood pictures on Loose Women today.

Ruth, 58, and Janet, 72, shared the black and white throwback snaps and people had trouble recognising them.

Ruth’s photo showed her next to a school friend and nobody was sure which one she was as she looked so different.

Janet then asked: “Which one is you?” She added: “The one with the dodgy hair grip?”

Ruth laughed and then had to point out that she is the girl on the right in the old snap.

Reminiscing on her school days, she said that she was “gawky looking” as a child, adding: “No make-up or anything like that.”

Meanwhile, Janet’s picture showed her looking like butter wouldn’t melt and she wore thick-rimmed glasses.

The women were discussing whether or not fake tan should be banned in schools.

Stacey said she was for it as she used to feel “pressured” to look a certain way when she was a student.
