Guess who! Can you recognise this popular television host?

He’s regularly seen gracing our television screens in the morning and has built a name for himself by providing a bunch of laughs.

He dropped out of school at the tender age of 15 and was employed by the Sydney Morning Herald as a copyboy.

He then went on to become the youngest national newsreader in the country for Seven Network when he just 17 years old.

And then in 1993 he garnered fame when he landed a presenting gig for the hit television show The Price Is Right.

His new-found popularity landed him the role of hosting Cash Bonanza and Wheel of Fortune, making him one of the most sought-after media personalities.

Have you guessed who the freckle faced boy is yet?

If you guessed Larry Emdur then you guessed correctly.

Taking to Instagram, the goofy television host posted a throwback photo of himself from when he was a young boy in school.

“Don’t know what happened to my freckles, but wish they were still there,” he wrote in the caption.

Speaking to New Idea, the 53-year-old revealed how he never predicted the height of his success, as he thought it wouldn’t last.

“They said it might last six or 12 months. Ten years? Never!”

“We’ve accomplished a lot together over the last 10 years,” he said during The Morning Show.

“After a decade sitting side-by-side on The Morning Show, we’ve realised that chemistry is key when it comes to your co-host.”
