Gogglebox stars Sophie and Pete Sandiford seen in cute throwback photo with famous family relatives

Gogglebox stars Sophie and Pete Sandiford have previously revealed they have famous faces in their family, with an old photo of them with their great uncles – the Chuckle Brothers – surfacing on Facebook.

The siblings, who are famed for their funny one-liners and impressive collection of mugs on Channel 4’s Gogglebox, are actually related to Paul and Barry Chuckle.

The Chuckle Brothers are famed for entertaining on children’s TV, presenting their game show To Me, To You – coined from their famous catchphrase – and securing their own show Chuckle Vision, which went on to be one of the longest-running kids’ shows on BBC.

The throwback photo, shared on Facebook, shows a baby Pete and Sophie spending time with their great uncles.

They were sat on their dad’s knee, while Paul and Barry were alongside Pete and Sophie flashing a smile for the camera.

Pete had shared the same photo to Instagram in 2018 to mark the death of his great uncle Barry – revealing the family connection.

Barry died aged 73 in August that year, with Pete honouring his relative as he wrote: ‘We are lucky enough to call him Uncle Barry ❤❤.’

Sophie also paid tribute to the star on social media. She tweeted: ‘You filled millions of childhoods with laughter and entertainment including mine and Peter’s.

‘You will be sadly missed by many. Rest in peace uncle Barry. Lots of love from me, to you.’

In 2019, Paul shared a picture of himself with the reality stars and referred to Sophie and Pete as his ‘great niece and nephew’.

 

He tweeted: ‘This day 2018 with my great niece and nephew @PeteandSophie #Gogglebox.’

Last year, Paul said of the pair in an interview with Metro: ‘I think they’re the funniest couple on [Gogglebox]. They’re just lovely kids.’

Pete and Sophie, from Blackpool, made their Gogglebox debut in 2017, after joining the show’s 10th series.

While Pete works in insurance, Sophie is a merchandiser and dresses up shop windows. She was previously employed by Debenhams but revealed in December she’d lost her job, following the retailer’s collapse.

Gogglebox is set to return to Channel 4 in February and is available to watch via catch up on All 4.
