India Willoughby shared a throwback photo to her Twitter page of presenter Bradley Walsh from his pro football days.

India, who is an avid Twitter user, posted the throwback snap to her 42,000 followers on Wednesday evening at the same time as ITV's hit game show, The Chase, which Bradley hosts.

The Celebrity Big Brother star captioned the snap: "Photo from my good friend @JC – who's this?"

However, fans quickly guessed that it was Bradley behind the snap, despite it being from many years ago.

In the photo Bradley is wearing red and white stripes as he's donning his old Brentford football team uniform with his long brunette hair.

Before Bradley was a successful TV presenter, he also had a successful footballing career.

The star played for Wormley Rovers, Brentford, Barnet, Tring Town, Boreham Wood and Chalfont St Peter.

However, his career was cut short after a series of ankle fractures when he was just 22 years old.

Bradley has still kept up with his football though as he has since played in Soccer Aid, both as a player and a coach.

Fans loved the throwback pic and guessed who it was.

One fan replied to the tweet: "Looks like Bradley Walsh India if I not mistaken? P.S. was & is still a good looking man."

A second person said: "Recognise that face. @BradleyWalsh Xxxx."

Since his football career Bradley has worked hard to be a successful actor and presenter.

In terms of his acting career, Bradley's next project is to star in The Darling Buds of May reboot, called The Larkins.

Joanna Scanlan, who is a star of The Thick of It and No Offence, is set to play Ma Larkin opposite Bradley’s Pop Larkin.

Bradley's son Barney, 23 is also due to make an appearance on the show as he is set to play policeman PC Harness on the reboot.

Other people set to appear include Doctor Who star Peter Davison, Downton Abbey's Robert Bathurst and Lydia Page, who is best known for starring in the CBBC series, The Worst Witch.

Bradley and his son Barney starred in their own TV show, Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad, which has proved to be a huge success.

Bradley appeared on This Morning on Wednesday as he showed off his custom made James Bond car.

He explained that the car took three and a half years to make, as he wanted a car that was brand new but had a classic look.
