Martine McCutcheon delighted her fans this week by posting a throwback photo from her EastEnders days, taken at the first ever National Television Awards. The snapshot included pop star Robbie Williams and Patsy Palmer – who played Martine's on-screen best friend Bianca Butcher in the BBC One soap. Martine captioned the photo, which also featured TV presenter Dani Behr and actor Max Beesley: "#flashback Look at our little baby faces. if I’m not mistaken, this picture was taken after the first ever @officialntas and we were at Browns nightclub... It was the 90’s and we were so young! I loved this night."

Shortly after the photo was posted, fans took to the comments section, with one writing: "Time has flown! The nineties were awesome!" Another joked: "So much nineties! All you need now is a Spice Girl in the photo and you've got the lot!" Eamonn Holmes – who was absent from this year's NTAs due to ill health – was quick to remind Martine who hosted the first ever awards show. He wrote: "And do you remember who was hosting the first ever NTAs? Do you want a clue???" Zoe Ball also took a trip down memory lane after seeing the photo, adding: "OH MY MY you lil beaut! And Dani Behr and Lee Sharpe."
