TOWIE star Lewis Bloor and his former co-star Sam Faiers look totally different in a throwback photo of the pair that has surfaced on Twitter.

On Wednesday (7 October), one Twitter user shared the old snap to the social media site, tagging both the Essex faves in their tweet.

And coming across the it, Lewis couldn't resist retweeting the photo, revealing it has been nearly ten years since he and Sam posed for it to be taken.

Ten years?! That would make Sam around 15 or 16.

While there's no mistaking Sam for herself in the photo, Lewis looks totally different as a teen. Check out his spikey hair and six pack!

Sam and Lewis knew each other way before their TOWIE days and even dated when they were growing up, with Lewis admitting Sam was his "first love". Despite ending their romance before the show, that didn't stop Lewis proving his feelings for his former flame were still there on his debut back in 2013.

At that point, though, Sam had moved on with co-star Joey Essex and the pair's on/off romance had viewers hooked until they eventually split for good in October last year.

Fast forward a decade from the moment that throwback snap was taken and Sam and Lewis have remained good friends.

While Lewis is still starring on The Only Way Is Essex, Sam left the show at the end of series 11. She has gone on to star on Celebrity Big Brother and has now built up her own beauty franchise, as well as running her very own fitness training site too.

Currently loved-up with boyfriend Paul Knightley, Sam confirmed back in August that she is pregnant.

She is expecting the couple's first child and, already six months gone, is expected to welcome their new arrival early next year.

TOWIE episode to air 7 Oct 2015
Nicole Bass and Danielle Armstrong


Nicole headed to Marbs with the TOWIE cast.

Lewis, meanwhile, has found himself reunited with another ex while filming for TOWIE.

This series, Nicole Bass has joined the cast, following her split with Lewis last year.

Revealing the pair ended on bad terms, Nicole told Danielle Armstrong: "He was going out partying, you know how boys do, they go through this stage where they think the grass is greener. I went to see him, there was a necklace on the side, it ended a bit sour."

However, it seems Lewis might be looking to make amends. Insisting he has grown up a lot, the Essex boy revealed his feelings haven't changed towards Nicole.

"If I had the head on my shoulders I do now I would probably be with her," he claimed. "When I'm with her, I forget about everything else. She has the best giggle. It makes me happy when I'm with her."

If he does want to win Nicole back, Lewis may have some competition from Michael Hassini. The TOWIE newcomer had asked to take Nicole out when they head back to Essex after Marbs, and recent pictures show the pair enjoying a date!

TOWIE continues Sunday 11 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
