Anne Hegerty is currently busy breaking Bushtuker Trial records and stealing the hearts of the nation on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, and we cannot get enough of our favourite Chaser's jungle antics.

A throwback photo of Anne, 60, has just emerged from her days of working as a journalist at South Wales Argus, and she looks almost unrecognisable.

The snap was taken in 1983, when she was 25 years old, and shows her sporting long curly hair, as opposed to the shorter style she's known for today.

Anne caused controversy earlier this week after it was claimed by viewers that she 'cheated' in the 'Sick Chair Challenge' Bushtuker Trial. The task involved consuming jungle-based delicacies, and one of these was a pint of fish eye juice.

After Anne, who has been exempt from many tasks on medical grounds, managed to down the juice in record time 12 seconds with apparent ease, many viewers voiced their suspicion that the task was a fix.

It has been claimed that the glass contained Coca Cola rather than anything gruesome, with many viewers even claiming to have seen bubbles in the drink.

One person tweeted: "Anne’s drink was definitely coke or ice coffee no way was it fish eye juice! She didn’t gag yet the other day she was gagging when they were talking about spit and sweat."

Another added: "Is Anne drinking blended fish eyes or coke 🤣 #imaceleb #imacelebrity @imacelebrity".

A third wrote: "#ImACeleb anne was drinking coke or pepsi, you can see the bubbles at the top of the glass".
