Former Made In Chelsea star Stevie Johnson treated fans to a *gem* of a photo taken of him eleven years ago.

We love a good dig through the family albums and nothing makes us smile more than when a famous face proves they too took a while to blossom in life. Stevie caught us unaware last night and as we opened up his latest Snapchat, we were greeted by this hilarious childhood snap of the Chelsea boy back in 2004...

How funny, right?

While there's no denying the boy in the picture is Stevie (he looks just the same sans the rugged beard he's now sporting), it's safe to say the reality star has now tamed his tearaway hair and is sporting perfect gnashers thanks to his braces in his younger years.

Finding the funny side of his teenage self, Stevie wrote alongside his childhood find: "Being badass since 2004."

And while his caption did make us 'lol' a little, we can't help but think Stevie was far more adorable than he's trying to make out. Totally more a cutie than bad boy, don't cha think?

Sadly, photo updates are all we have of Stevie lately as he decided to leave Made In Chelsea at the end of the show's ninth series.

Skipping out on the cast's trip to LA, Stevie chose to hang up his boots instead, insisting it was "the right time" for him to walk away.

Addressing his exit on his blog, Stevie said: "It is a sad moment for me, but I believe the right decision going forward. I cannot offer the show as much as I used to, and whilst I always enjoyed having my whole life on camera for the viewers to see, I don't want to continue if I can only give 50%."

Stevie had previously revealed his girlfriend Cressida Stewart (who he has been dating for over a year now) wouldn't join him on the show, as she was focusing on her own career offscreen.

While fans had hoped to see her, Stevie said he had decided to put his relationship first instead, admitting he didn't want to push Cressida into appearing.

Reflecting on his three years on the E4 reality show, Stevie told fans he'd had a blast.

"I've had the time of my life... Hell, I even grew a beard," he joked. "From Stevie, to Steve, to Stefan, and now finally back to Stevie, I have gone full circle over the last 3 years."

"I never believed the show would go on to be as successful as it has, and I am privileged to have been a part of it," he added. "I've made friends forever, and Made In Chelsea will always hold a special place in my heart."

Stevie has since teased that he has a few projects in the pipeline that he is willing to share, but for now, it seems we'll have to stay glued to his Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat to not miss out on moments like his "badass" teenage self.
