The TV star wrote alongside the snap: "WOW!!! #throwbackthursday - that must be 2002!!! Before @maddiemaddieee!!!"

Nadia and Mark's blast from the past comes shortly after the mum-of-two bravely opened up to her followers about her struggles with anxiety during the lockdown. The TV star confessed she has been crying more than ever since the restrictions were put in place, just days after her father Nadim underwent heart surgery. "In the first week, I wasn't dealing with it well at all. My dad had just had a heart operation and I was so frantic. I was watching the news 24/7 and I had high anxiety," she told The Mirror. She added: "I'm crying more than I've ever cried and I find myself wondering what the world will look like when we come out of all of this. I know we're lucky because we've got quite a big house and garden, I have a husband I like and children who are well-behaved."

However it seems that Nadia will be able to regain a hint of normality as of next week as Loose Women is set to return next week. However, in keeping with social distancing guidelines, there will be some adjustments to the show. Three women will be in the studio with one panellist joining via video link. There will also be some pre-recorded shows across the week, in addition, to live shows on Mondays and Wednesdays to limit the footfall at the studios.
