She was on TV before Corrie

Tina O'Brien has served up some serious nostalgia by revealing old pictures from her first acting job on Children's Ward.

The Coronation Street actress began her career on the ITV children's programme in the 1990s.

Her pictures showed a baby-faced Tina in scenes from the popular show, before she found fame as Sarah Platt on Corrie.

Tina, 35, wrote alongside the snaps: "#throwbackthursday first ever TV job working for @itv’s Children’s Ward age 12/13 I think 😊."

Tina also praised her Corrie co-stars Jane Danson, Samia Longchambon and Alan Halsall, who also starred on Children's Ward in their early careers.

"Spent the entire shoot in awe of my fellow young cast mates @realjanedanson @samia_longchambon @alanhalsall never knowing we’d be back together at @coronationstreet years later 😊❤️," Tina gushed.

A couple of years after her stint on Children's Ward Tina would go on to get the role of Sarah in Corrie.
