TOWIE fans know Chloe Brockett is a standout character on the show.

However, she hasn't always been the main event. In fact, as a child, she appeared as a background character in a BBC adaptation of Just William. So cute.

"When I was eight I did a lot of acting," she explained.

"This was when I worked on a programme on BBC called Just William. Lily James was playing his sister and I remember her being so lovely and beautiful ".

Chloe also shared a photo of herself with Daniel Roche.

"The boy playing William was called Daniel, I remember being a bit starstruck because he was also in Outnumbered.

"I loved acting when I was younger... (still do now really )," she teased.

Chloe Brockett's first appearance on TOWIE

Chloe also reflected on her life before going on TOWIE and admitted that days before she was approached by the producer, she wasn't in the best place.

"Found this video from my 18th birthday. My mum paid for me and (a friend) to go to Paris, I had no money at all and no job.

"I remember I got this dress from Zara, kept the label in and then took it back after this trip. It's crazy because six days later I was asked to meet the producers of TOWIE. How crazy," she added.

The reality star went on to reflect on how difficult she found fame at first.

"I remember having such a mix of emotions. I was sad because I used to get so so so much hate online (I felt like the whole country hated me) and I'd fallen out with my closest friends, all in front of the nation .

"But I was so happy to be on TOWIE, I'd gone from having no job and no direction (I'd just quit my job in the salon) to now doing something so exciting!

"I'd just turned 18 so I feel like it was quite a lot to deal with ," she added.
