They look SO different!

Francesca Shillcock

Beloved sitcom Outnumbered has returned to our screens much to the delight of fans that have loved the show since it came out back thirteen years ago. The hit sitcom, starring Hugh Dennis and Ramona Marquez, is now available to watch on Netflix and we can't wait to re-watch them all! The series first appeared on TV back in 2007 so it's safe to say that the cast have certainly changed over the years. Here's what they looked like then and what they look like now...

This is what the cast used to look like when the show first aired

Tyger Drew-Honey – Jake

Given the actors that played the children of the Brockman family were kids when they started – it'll come as no surprise that they're the ones that have changed the most over the years. Actor Tyger, once a baby-faced Jake, is now a matured 24-year-old who has gone on to find work in other TV shows such as Death in Paradise and Doctors.

Hugh Dennis – Dad

Hugh Dennis played Pete Brockman in the show – a dad constantly at his wits ends as he juggles family life. Years may have passed, but the comedian, now 58, is still looking sharp as ever. As well as Outnumbered, the actor is well-known for his work in Not Going Out, Mock the Week and stand-up comedy.

 Apart from a slightly different hair style, and no longer sporting her mum-on-the-go look featured on the show, Claire, 54, looks just as radiant.
