The Office's Lucy Davis looks very different 19yrs after playing Dawn Tinsley as she appears on Loose Women | The Sun

THE Office fans were delighted today when Lucy Davis appeared unexpectedly on Loose Women.

The 49-year-old actress is best known in the UK for playing Dawn Tinsley, the receptionist in the Ricky Gervais comedy.

She played the role for two years before the show ended with Dawn hooking up with salesman Tim Canterbury, played by Martin Freeman.

Lucy appeared on Loose Women 19 years after that finale talking to Denise Welch about her life in the US.

Appearing with her hair in pigtails and wearing dungarees, a choker and a chain, she spoke to Denise in Santa Monica, California.

The former soap actress, 64, was in America for a special series where she tracks down stars who were once on TV back in the UK.
