As a serious TV presenter and one of the faces of family-friendly Daybreak, Christine Bleakley is sure to cringe over some old photos of herself in sexy fancy dress.

The Sun has come across snaps of the 31-year-old when she was just starting out in her TV career in her native Northern Ireland - and some of them are a little bit more saucy than the girl next door image she has now!

Although one shows her looking funny in a Dolly Parton outfit, another depicts her wearing firefighter fancy dress that could get a few male pulses racing.

It is thought that the snaps came from an old calendar, but Christine might be wishing they had stayed buried.

However, the opportunity to dress up is not completely over for the presenter, as she was required to don a bright pink My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding-style dress for Daybreak last week.
