Gemma Collins, 39, took to Instagram to pay honor to a friend's birthday by posting a series of throwback photos from the past.
Some of us adore celebrity nostalgia – I suppose it's because it gives us a glimpse into life before the spotlight.
Gemma Collins, a former TOWIE star, is known for her ultra-glam style and bright, outspoken demeanor, and she appears to have constantly smiled as a teen.

The photos show Gemma Collins and her companion shouting on a rollercoaster and enjoying nights out, although in a questionable choice of net top – but it's comforting to know we weren't the only ones fooled by some strange 80s/90s fashion faux pas.
Gemma captioned the photos as follows:
“The BEST FRIEND I could ever have wished for… you ground me always. 36 years of friendship."

Fans were quick to comment, praising Gemma's transformation over the years and even comparing her to Holly Willoughby from This Morning.
One comment said: “Gem you’ve been gorg since day 1”.
While another said: “You look like Holly Willoughby when you were younger."

I'm not sure I see the likeness, but maybe I'm looking at it from the incorrect perspective.
The GC is currently living her best life on a yacht, posting videos of herself in a leopard one-piece flaunting her three-stone weight loss.
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to cause alarm among Brits, she advised followers to "keep calm and carry on."

Gemma wrote: “Happy Sunday beautiful people. This is a message from your QUEEN… I am speaking… I saw a very concerning video that there was no toilet rolls left in the supermarkets whilst being away!!.
“This is all I’m gonna say WE MUST KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON… #inspirationalwomensday”.
On that, my 'queen,' I agree with you.
