Gogglebox Star Pete Sandiford Becomes Dad For First Time

Gogglebox star Pete Sandiford and his partner Paige Yeomans have welcomed their baby son.

Pete, who joined the show in 2017, shared the happy news with the Mirror at the National Television Awards last night (9 September).

He said: "He's a cool little lad, takes after his mum not me!"

Pete then joked: "I've been up all night, I slept on the train here - got suitcases under my eyes, you just got me at a good time now."

Pete stars alongside his sister Sophie in the Channel 4 reality show, where he broke the news that his partner was expecting back in April.

In sweet scenes, Pete handed Sophie his phone which had scan photos on it and told her she was going to be an auntie.

Seemingly still getting his head around the news, he added: "Innit mad? I am actually going to be a dad to somebody."

To which Sophie replied: "Crazy. Life's coming at you fast."

The tot has been born into quite the celebrity family - because as well as his dad and auntie being TV regulars, he's also related to Paul Elliott.

Yep, that's right - the Sandifords are related to none other than the Chuckle Brothers, also known as Paul Elliott and his late brother Barry.

Proud great uncle Paul has shared several posts about Pete and Sophie over the years.

Following Barry's death in August 2018, Sophie also posted a photo of herself and Pete with their uncles to pay tribute to him - saying he was 'a truly lovely and funny man to be around'.

She said: "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 will be back on our screens in the next series of Gogglebox which is set to land on Channel 4 next Friday (17 September).
