James Martin sent his fans into a meltdown when he shared an old school photograph of him from his 21st birthday.

The TV chef's Instagram followers couldn't help but point out his younger self's resemblance to a young Prince William - and we totally see it!

In the throwback snap, James can be seen enjoying a glass of fizz while rocking a pin striped waist coat and a rather funky tie while flashing a handsome smile to the camera.

'This one is funny...my 21st birthday at @chewtonglen...25 odd years later and 8 weeks ago I’m back cooking with my name on the door,' James penned beside the image, sending his adoring fans into a frenzy.

The foodie pro went on to share some more old images, including an utterly adorable one of him as a little boy with a face full of freckles.

'Ha, ha me aged 10ish...mother sending me pictures 📷,' he wrote beside the cute pic.

The restaurant owner and cooking expert, who lives in a mystery village, also posted a lovely photo of him and his little sister as children, in which they can be seen sporting some seriously 70s style fashion.

'Me and my sis...check out my flares 🤣,' James joked.

'And not just flares....corded flares! 😂 Oh how fashion has changed 😊,' one fan wrote in the comment section.

'All I'm hearing with seeing them flares is night fever night, fever by Bee Gees 😂,' laughed a second amused follower.
