RTE star Grainne Seoige looks unrecognizable in archival footage from Sky News.
An old Sky News Ireland archive clip from 2005 has resurfaced with the popular Irish broadcaster.
48 years old was a presenter for the Irish Sky News program a few days ago.
The Irish Channel launched in May 2004 and was discontinued just two years later, in November 2006.
The Galway native is only 31 years old in archival footage from 17 years ago.
In the video, Grainne has much shorter hair with fringes and wears a pink glitter coat and a gray felt jacket in the video.
After her stint at Sky News Ireland, she left the news and became a mainstay on RTÉ hosting numerous shows including The All Ireland Talent Show, Seoige and O’Shea, Crimecall, Up for the Match and Put’ I’m Under Pressure.
This year, Grainne is competing as one of the contestants on Dancing With The Stars.
The presenter revealed what was on her mind when she stumbled during her first gig on Dancing With The Stars.
Grainne took to the stage to waltz with professional partner John Nolan to the tune With You I’m Born Again.
The pair scored a total of 14 points from the judges but Brian Redmond pointed out a small error that caused Grainne to slip.
He said: “There was a little slip there and that happened at the exact moment I could see it starting to bloom.”
Grainne explained the reason behind the slip and acknowledged the judges were fair in their comments.
The presenter said: “I really think they’re mostly fair, to be honest.
“The funny thing is that my little stumble, which Brian drew attention to, was because I kicked my leg higher than I ever did before.
“You know with the adrenaline of the show, you just go find things, fly around.”
When asked what was going on in her head at the time, the Galway girl said it was empty.
She told Lottie Ryan on the Dancing With The Stars podcast: “It’s okay, just carry on for him [John] gave me the urge – keep it up. “
Her partner added: “The show must go on.”
