The Chase's Anne Hegerty, aka The Governess, is known for her trademark grey suit on the popular ITV quiz show, but on Thursday, fans were in for a shock when she showcased a stunning new look on Loose Women. The 59-year-old, who was given a makeover by the show's team before appearing on the panel, looked fantastic in feminine pastel shades, replacing The Governess's uniform for a soft pink kimono from New Look and a bold print dress from Asos. Beauty-wise, Anne was given a much softer make-under. Her complexion was enhanced with natural foundation and sweep of rose-hued blusher to compliment her outfit, while a smoky eye and pale pink lipstick completed her look.

Anne told the panel that she didn’t miss wearing her trademark suit, admitting: "I don't know if I'd say I hate it. You know I love doing The Chase, it's fantastic, I hope it goes on being fantastic, but yeah that is not what I would chosen to wear."

While on the show, Anne also revealed that she was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome in 2005, which led to her eventually losing her job as a proofreader. The TV star then had to go on benefits before joining The Chase. Anne's emotional backstory lead to fans urging her to write a book. "Could have listened to you for ages on Loose Women. Have you written a book? I'd read it," one wrote. Another said: "So interesting to hear about Anne Gegerty. Good on you for being open, you are probably helping others now and are so relatable."
