A TOWIE star was unrecognisable in an incredible throwback snap with her rarely-seen daughter.
The 40-year-old star carried her little one in her arms in the snap taken seven years ago.
She looked totally different with brown hair and a dark tan, while her little girl was pictured in her primary school uniform of a summer dress and blue cardigan.
The snap is of Chloe Sims and her daughter Madison.
The 40-year-old has been a single mum since 2005 after her relationship with Mady’s dad Stephen broke down.
Matthew has always been a good co-parent and Chloe has said that “Madison’s dad and his family have always helped”.
Shedding light on why they went their separate ways, Chloe said in a past interview: “I was with Maddie’s dad, Matthew, for seven years, but we ended up like brother and sister and that isn’t what I want.”
Chloe’s special bond with her daughter is all the more touching as the star was left by her own mother at the age of just three.
