Fans know and love Luke Jacobz from his appearances in Home and Away and McLeod’s Daughters, but they’ve never seen him like this before.

The 40-year-old, who also won Dancing With The Stars: All Stars earlier this year, shared a throwback snap on social media looking unrecognisable from his current self.

Taking to Instagram, Luke said that he stumbled across the adorable photo thanks to his mother.

“Mum just found this little pic hidden in a box,” he captioned the rare snap of himself.

“All I know is, I was a handful as a child but was loved unconditionally. Our parents shape us to be the people we are, so I’ll always be forever grateful!

“Love you Ma!”

A number of fans took to the comments to compliment the Aussie personality, with many saying that he looks “so cute”.

“It was already known then that he was a heartbreaker,” one fan wrote, with another adding, “Clearly destined for greatness”.


“That grin has mischief written all over it,” someone else remarked.

“What a sweet innocent little face! How times have changed,” a fourth user joked.

Luke’s mother also replied to the post, saying: “Plenty more where that came from!”

After a nine-year hiatus, Luke Jacobz returned to Home and Away as his character Angelo Rosetta for four months last year.

The Aussie soap is set to return on Monday 9 August after a two-week break for the Olympics, with Channel 7 declaring that there will be plenty of ‘happily ever afters, heartbreak and new beginnings’.

Viewers were left on a cliffhanger last month when it was revealed that Dean, Nikau and Mia - as well as her unborn baby - were involved in a tragic car crash.

The mid-season finale ended with Dean and Mia unconscious in the vehicle right on the cliff’s edge, while Nikau had been thrown out of the car when his passenger door separated.

Former Neighbours actors Harley Bonner and Jacqui Purvis are also set to make their Summer Bay debut when the series resumes.
