Outnumbered Karen star Ramona Marquez looks unrecognisable as she poses for snap

Former child star Ramona Marquez has undergone a major transformation since her debut on hit BBC sitcom Outnumbered almost 16 years ago.

The actress, who played the role of Karen Brockman, has evolved from a curly-haired cheeky youngster to a sophisticated and edgy adult.

Ramona was only six years old when she landed the role of Karen in the British family comedy in 2007.

She played the character for seven years until she was 13.

The series then returned for a one-off Christmas special in 2016, giving fans one last glimpse of the beloved family.

However, it was a recent TikTok video that went viral over the weekend that reminded fans of Ramona's transformation.

In the video, Ramona confirmed: "Everybody told me that I sound like CG5, probably because I am CG5," the TikTok began, before reminding fans who Ramona is best known for.

"Everybody tells me that I look like the little girl from Outnumbered…" the audio finished, as the former actress smiled to the camera.

In another snap, the star stuck her tongue out to show off her piercing, and also put her finger tattoos and an adornment of silver rings on display.

Flashing her midriff, the star wore a plain long-sleeved top and black drawstring trousers as she posed for the mirror selfie.

Fans were stunned as Ramona looks vastly different from her on-screen persona.

While she still has Karen's recognisably cheeky grin, she now sports straightened brunette locks and a choppy fringe.

Fans were quick to express their disbelief at Ramona's transformation, with many unable to believe that she is the same little girl who played Karen.

"OH MY GOD YOU WERE MY CHILDHOOD," one person screamed, while another declared, "Karen is literally me."

Some fans even aspired to be like Karen when they grew up, while another added: "Not me instantly knowing it's you just from growing up watching you religiously."

Ramona rose to fame alongside her former on-screen brothers Daniel Roche, now 20, who portrayed Ben, and Tyger Drew-Honey, now 24, who played oldest sibling Jake.

Seen together in 2019, the trio looked unrecognisable in photographs from a day they spent together in July that year.

Outnumbered was watched by 9.4 million viewers at its peak and ran for five series between 2007 and 2014, with a one-off Christmas special in 2016.
