Balamory’s Miss Hoolie almost unrecognisable as she fronts new CBeebies show 18 years on from TV debut | The Sun

BALAMORY'S Miss Hoolie looks completely unrecognisable as she fronts a brand new kids TV show.

Julie Wilson Nimmo, who played the beloved school teacher, looks worlds away from her character.

The pre-school series, which aired on CBeebies between 2002 and 2005, featured characters wearing distinctive colours that matched their houses.

Now, 18 years on from her role, Julie will front a brand new children's TV series with her partner Greg Hemphill.

The pair will play the role of on screen couple of Mr and Mrs Sawdust.

And the 51-year-old actress has debuted a new look as she revealed her red long hair.

During her time on Balamory Julie sported a flipped bob haircut with a green jacket, scarf and hat.

Her new TV series, Olga da Polga, is based on Paddington creator Michael Bond's children's books based on a guinea pig.

The much-loved pet guinea pig lives with her owners, eight year-old Karen and her mum and dad.

Julie recently appeared on ITV's This Morning alongside her co-star Andrew Angew who played PC Plum.

Speaking about the beloved show, Nimmo said: "There was no-one on our show cutting about, thinking look, we've arrived on this show. We were one of the first shows on Cbeebies channel, which wasn't even a thing at the time.

"We just loved the script and we were just so excited. It sounds really cheesy but we all just fell in love with each other and all just got on like a house on fire."
