Lydia posted the picture on Instagram to mark Jessica's 31st birthday and it shows the girls back when TOWIE had just launched.
In the photo, Lydia is sporting a side fringe while Jessica - to put it politely - appears to have mistaken creosote for fake tan. Oops!
Captioning the shot, Lydia said: "Throwing it back to 6 years ago when all the craziness began. So glad I got to experience it with you @jesswright77 Happy Birthday sweets."
Jessica seemed most amused by the shot and replied to Lydia: "Haha thanks Lyd. Why am I pulling the oddest face?!!!!!!!! This pic looks nothing like me on that day!!!!!! X"
Meanwhile, many other of Jessica's co-stars, friends and family have also been busy wishing her a happy birthday.
Gemma Collins tweeted: "Happy birthday to the very beautiful @MissJessWright_,best looking girl in Essex!" While Chloe Sims added: "Happy birthday @MissJessWright_!"
Jess's family have also shared their wishes on Twitter, with her brother Mark tweeting: "Happy birthday to my wonderful sister @MissJessWright_ today. Have a great one and we'll see you later. Love ya x." Mark's wife, Michelle Keegan, added: "Happy birthday @MissJessWright_ hope you're having a lovely day so far!!!! Sending you lots of love! xxxxx."
But Carol Wright, Jessica's mum, wins the award for the best tweet. She said: "Happy birthday to my beautiful baby girl @MissJessWright_ you make us so proud every day love mummy and daddy x x"
Happy Birthday, Jess!
