Shameless star Tina Malone looks unrecognisable in Jeremy Kyle Show appearance eight years ago

TINA Malone once appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show and completely different compared to now.

The Shameless actress went on the show to chat to Jeremy about her struggles with alcohol and bankruptcy and her plans to have IVF at 50.

She also showed off her jaw-dropping 11 stone weight loss – proving just how much she'd shed by squeezing her and Jeremy into one of her old dresses.

When Jeremy grilled Tina – who rose to fame as Shameless' outspoken Mimi – on her decision to start the process so late in life, she defended herself and later insisted she had no regrets.

Tina, who married husband Paul Chase in 2010, hit back at those criticising her, saying: “Unless these people are paying my mortgage, sleeping in my bed or walking my dogs, I really don’t give two s**** what they think.

“People can call me a silly fat, selfish, old b******. I truly don’t care. I’m having a baby with the man I love. And that’s no one else’s business but ours.

“Paul and I have wanted a baby for two years but the time was never right. I was working 80-hour weeks on Shameless.

"I was too fat, too skint, and too happy at being part of a new couple. So I thought, why get pregnant at 47?

"Why not just wait until I’m 50, which I have?"

Tina, who is also mum to 39-year-old Danielle from another relationship, and Paul welcomed baby girl Flame in December 2013.

Earlier this year Tina backed new mum Naomi Campbell, who also had a baby at 50.

Insisting that older mums are "wiser", she told Closer: "I'm blessed to have had two beautiful incredible girls but I can honestly say being a mature mum was one million times better.

"It was brilliant. At 18, it was damn hard trying to carve out a career with a child on my own.

"Experience is also the best thing in life so as an older mum, I'm wiser and stronger."
