Looking equally as impressive, her co-star Jason Bradbury opted for the same colour scheme with blue chunky boots, a silver bodysuit and a cape.

"Throwback to 7 years ago today. Absolutely no recollection of why we were dressed like this but I’m sure it was in the name of science... @jasonbradbury #thegadgetshow #throwback," Rachel captioned the Instagram post.

"Love the retro sci-fi look. Reminds me of the film Barbarella," wrote one, and another joked: "I thought this was an 80s album cover." A third added: "Doctor who audition....?"

Regardless, the outfits were a big hit with fans, and several were loving Rachel's blue hair. "Is it only me thinking the blue wig suits you. Lol," remarked one, while a second commented: "Bring that wig back for Countdown."

Rachel is married to Strictly Come Dancing professional Pasha Kovalev, after the pair met on the dancing competition in 2013. They share daughter Maven, now one, who she recently revealed is taking after her dad with her dancing abilities!

Fans were left wondering if the couple were expecting their second child after Rachel shared another throwback photo taken when she was pregnant with Maven. 

The TV star modelled a gorgeous glittering dress from Hope and Ivy as she cradled her baby bump. Former Strictly professional Iveta Lukosiute wrote: "Are you expecting #2? Congratulations," to which Rachel sweetly replied: "No this was just recorded a while ago! We'll keep you posted, your little family of 4 is so gorgeous to see."
