Gogglebox viewers were left emotional watching Sophie Sandiford burst into tears after hearing that the UK was going back into lockdown.
The families were seen watching Boris Johnson’s briefing from last weekend, where he announced that the UK would be entering into another four-week lockdown from November 5.
While most of the families were left exasperated by the news, the one that took it the hardest was Sophie, who was seen bursting into tears as she found the news so overwhelming.
Wiping away the tears, Sophie said: ‘It’s like last time, so my work will shut. It’s just sad, isn’t it, cos it’s just s**t for everybody and it’s going to get worse because more people are going to lose their jobs. It’s just awful.’
Others added: ‘When @PeteandSophie started to get upset I felt like my sister was crying, I instantly wanted to hug her, its such a scary and uncertain time’ and ‘Just had my first tear over #Lockdown2. Sending Sophie a big virtual hug.’
Pete and Sophie are firm fan favourites as others added: ‘Poor little Sophie. What a lovely sweet lass she is. Breaking her heart over everything people are going through because of #covid19 and #lockdown2uk What a lovely soul. Pete is adorable too, making a fuss of her. Awwwwwwwwwww. My heart.’

Elsewhere Mary compared the coronavirus to a ‘biblical plague’ while Giles rushed off to wash his hands again, explaining: ‘It’s making me paranoid. I realised that I have been out, touched a gate and I haven’t washed my hands and a lot of other people touched that gate.’
Julie Malone had an altogether bleaker outlook on the situation, saying: ‘We’re all going to end up in church halls, aren’t we… the survivors, and most of the country dead like in a horror film.’
Tom Malone Sr didn’t take too well to that, responding: ‘F**king hell Julie! Rein it in a bit will you, for f**ks sake! It’s not a zombie movie.’
Gogglebox continues Friday from 9pm on Channel 4.
