You're not going to believe this - Gogglebox siblings Sophie and Pete Sandiford are related to none other than the Chuckle brothers!

Mind. Blown.

As it turns out, Sophie and Pete are the niece and nephew of the TV comedy duo - Paul Chuckle and the late Barry Chuckle, who sadly passed away in 2018.

Fans were shocked when Paul took to his Twitter account to post an image of the pair, captioning it "proud uncle".

"Look who we had a very nice lunch with," he wrote, alongside a picture with the siblings.

And when eagle-eyed fans commented on the tweet, asking if they were related, Paul replied confirming they indeed are!


Awww, small world, eh?

Fans were mind blown at the news, with one writing: "Ahh I didn't know you guy were related! Makes sense now, they're the funniest on gogglebox!"

While another said: "Nooo?! How fabulous and totally makes sense....now I know why you both make me chuckle so much."


Meanwhile, when Barry sadly passed away in 2018, Sophie took to her social media to pay tribute to her uncle, who she said filled her life with laughter and entertainment.

"A truly lovely and funny man to be around. You filled millions of childhoods with laughter and entertainment including mine and Peters," she said.

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



The new series of Gogglebox is set to arrive on Channel 4 at the end of this week, on Friday 11th September. It's believed there will be 15 episodes in total.

Fans can look forward to seeing all their favourites, such as the Siddiqui family, sisters Ellie and Izzi Warner, friends Mary and Marina and couple Giles and Mary.

We can't wait to tune in.
