Former Homes Under the Hammer presenter Lucy Alexander trained at drama college with many famous faces, including Louie Spence. And during her time there, the mum-of-two made many lifelong friends, including EastEnders actress Tamzin Outhwaite. The pair met at the London Studio Centre as teenagers, and often went on holiday together. Recently, they revealed they used to look very similar while appearing on Kate Thornton's White Wine Question Time podcast, and they weren't joking! On Tuesday, Lucy went on a trip down memory lane and shared a photo of the pair from their college days, and reminisced about that time in their lives.

While Lucy went on to pursue a successful TV career focusing on property, Tamsin found fame as Mel Owen in EastEnders.

The pair have remained great friends

Lucy's fans might well be seeing her on the next series of Strictly Come Dancing later in the year – that's if she has anything to do with it! Last year, the TV star revealed to the Express that she would "love to" take part in the BBC One dance show. "That would be the icing on the cake," she said. Lucy added: "I've got a little bit of dancing in the locker. I can dance, I used to be in the dance group. Not a lot of people know that." More recently, Lucy went to watch Anton du Beke in his new musical, Anton and Erin: Dance Those Magical Musicals.
