by Press room

Gogglebox’s Sophie Sandiford gushed over her new Irish boyfriend Ben McKeown on Friday’s episode of the show, lifting the lid on their relationship for the first time.  

Sophie, 24, who stars on the Channel 4 show with her brother Pete, 26, chatted about her new romance, after sharing a cosy picture with him earlier this month. 

Sat on their usual sofas, Pete asked how it was all going with the new man, to which she replied: ‘Really good, yeah. I’ve snared myself a hunk.’

Pete then cheekily replied of his disputed height: ‘I still don’t think he’s six foot. I don’t give a s*** what anybody says. Until my tape measure says he’s six foot.’

Sophie then shared details of her brother and boyfriend’s first meeting, when Pete told Ben he thought he would be taller.

Sophie said: ‘You’re looking up to him and then saying, ‘I thought you were at least six foot’, when he is.’

Pete replied defensively: ‘He doesn’t look six foot, and then added: ‘Lies. Already built on lies. Oh dear.’

Sophie then joked: ‘Just because he makes you look like one of The Borrowers.’

Earlier this month Sophie introduced fans to her new boyfriend Ben in a loved-up image posted to her Instagram account. 

She posed for a glam photo with her new beau and her brother’s wife Paige Yeomans as they attended a wedding together. 

The TV siblings’ famous great uncle – comic legend Paul Chuckle – gave his niece and her new Irish lover his seal of approval as he shared a sweet message after seeing them at the wedding.

‘You all look stunning but didn’t look like that at end of the night!’

Sophie replied: ‘Such a lovely day! See you all again soon, lots of love to you and auntie sue xx’

Meanwhile, her brother Pete and his wife Paige married in a secret ceremony and became parents for the first time in 2021 after she gave birth to a baby boy, who has appeared on Gogglebox with his dad and aunt Sophie.

He revealed to OK! at the National Television Awards shortly after the birth: ‘[Being a dad is] tiring. The lack of sleep is not cool but it’s definitely worth it.

‘He’s basically a miniature version of me and Paige and that’s what I always wanted so I feel well lucky.’ 

Pete and Sophie also boast a celebrity great uncle – Paul Elliott, perhaps better known as children’s television entertainer Paul Chuckle.

Television star Paul, 74, who appeared on BBC programme ChuckleVision from 1987 to 2009 with his brother Barry Elliott, shared a throwback snap of himself with Pete and Sophie, both 26, from 2018 on Twitter last month.

He could be seen sitting between the pair on a sofa while out together, captioning the picture: ‘This day 2018 with my great niece and nephew.’

Pete and Sophie’s other great uncle, Paul’s brother Barry, died after a battle with cancer at the age of 73 on 5 August 2018.

Sophie wrote on social media at the time: ‘A truly lovely and funny man to be around. 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.’

Pete and Sophie, who have two other siblings called Harry and Lucy who don’t appear on the show, have been regulars on Gogglebox since 2018.
