Pamela Andeson became a household name as busty lifeguard CJ Parker on nineties series Baywatch.
And Lily James had quite the swimwear to fill on set of her upcoming series Pam And Tommy.
The 32-year-old English actress looked every bit the blonde bombshell as she donned Anderson’s iconic skintight red one-piece swimsuit while filming a Baywatch scene in Malibu on Wednesday.

Lily was a dead ringer for Pamela, now 58, as she appeared to be wearing prosthetics designed to emulate Pamela’s famously busty appearance – said to have been the result of two breast implant surgeries in the early 1990s, increasing her breast size to a 34D, and then to a 34DD respectively.
Not seen on set was her co-star Sebastian Stan who is playing Pam’s ex-husband and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
The upcoming Hulu series is based on Pamela’s tumultuous three-year-marriage to rock star Tommy Lee (played by Sebastian Stan) – which saw them tie the knot in 1995 and take part in their notorious sex tape.
Pamela, 53, and Tommy, 58, – who had two kids together, sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 23 – were considered to be one of the wildest celebrity couples of their time.
Simply stunning: The 32-year-old English actress certainly gave fans flashbacks of the 90’s series as she wore the bright swimwear on the set of the Pam And Tommy series for Hulu

‘Here’s a peek at Pam & Tommy, coming to @Hulu. Based on the true scandal that started it all, featuring Lily James, Sebastian Stan and @SethRogen … ready to rewind? #PamAndTommy, ‘ the tweet read.
However, Pamela has reportedly branded the show ‘a joke and cheap knock-off’ according to a source report earlier this week.
Insiders told The Sun that the star deems the ‘God awful’ programme ‘a joke’ and has never heard of Lily or Sebastian, who have already been praised for their transformation – although seemingly without Pamela’s seal of approval.
‘Pamela has no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never…,’ a source told the publication.
‘She’s never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them. She and her family think the show is a cheap knock-off.’
The insider then added: ‘The whole thing is a joke to them.’
Lily and Sebastian showed off their incredible resemblances to the former couple last Friday as they appeared to mimic the famous 2005 photo of Pamela, 53, tugging on Tommy’s, 58, nipple ring with her teeth.
While a different snap saw Lily in an all-black leather outfit that highlighted her cleavage in a black leather vest as she transformed into the blonde bombshell.
The raunchy photos were shared on the Twitter page for the Pam And Tommy series on Friday.
In a black-and-white photo, Sebastian went shirtless with drawn on inkings, he also wore a pair of high-waisted jeans, chain belt and a padlock necklace.

The actor sported a similar shaggy hairdo and soul patch to the Mötley Crüe drummer.
Lily wore a racy plaid top and showed off a Barb Wire tattoo on her arm, while also wearing her blond wig styled up.
While some have marveled at the potentially wacky idea of re-telling the pair’s love life for a TV show, it is certainly being helmed by some top talent.
The television show is being directed by Australian filmmaker Craig Gillespie, who directed the Oscar-winning movie I, Tonya starring Margot Robbie and Allison Janney.
Gillespie also directed indie hit Lars and the Real Girl starring Ryan Gosling, and the new Disney blockbuster Cruella starring Emma Stone.

Wow! The show hit headlines last week when first look images showed Lily James, 32, and Sebastian Stan, 38, bear an uncanny likeness to the iconic couple, however it seems the model, 53, is less than impressed at the forthcoming show
