This is Esther McVey, Conservative MP and the nation's employment minister.
But politics wasn't always her thing. Here she is aged 23 with Simon Parkin and Philippa Forrester, her co-hosts on BBC kids’ show But First This in 1991.
A YouTube clip shows McVey teeing up some classic programmes, including kids' gameshow Clockwise.
And who could forget the brilliance of Playdays.
It was McVey's first major job as a TV presenter. Working with screaming kids must have set her up well for the House of Commons.
