THE Big Breakfast fans were left cooing in delight as the Teletubbies original sun baby made an appearance.

Jess Smith became one of the most famous faces on kids TV back in the late 1990s as the baby who appeared in the sun on the hit BBC show.

She made an appearance on Saturday's Big Breakfast where fans were delighted to see her all grown up.

One wrote on Twitter: "The sun baby! How cute! :)."

The picture saw Jess holding a little girl, with many mistaking the child as her own, including BBC Radio 1 presenter, Greg James, who tweeted: "This has made me feel 800 years old".
