It wasn't just the photo with Simon that fans went wild over. Others showed a young Zoe pouting on the red carpet, on stage with Sara Cox and Davina McCall, holding up a BRIT award with Frank Skinner and backstage again with Sara Cox.

Zoe delighted fans with her trip down memory lane

Davina was among the first to react, recalling how she was "terrified" of Zoe back in the day. She wrote: "Awwwwww we are together!!! I was terrified of you then!! I thought you were so trendy and cool."

Others loved the reminder of the 90s fashion, with many pointing out Zoe's two-tone denim skirt in a snap with Sara. "Two-tone denim skirts. What a memory!" said one fan.

Another wrote: "Aha! That denim skirt… I copied that design and sold a few off the back of that picture when I was a poor student at fashion college! Merci Zoé."
