Gogglebox’s Sophie Sandiford’s new Irish boyfriend has already met great uncle Paul Chuckle

She’s best known for appearing alongside her brother, Pete, on hit Channel 4 show, Gogglebox, but Sophie Sandiford has a new man in her life as she’s introduced her hunky new Irish boyfriend to the world.

In a picture posted to her Instagram account on Sunday, Sophie, 26, revealed her new boyfriend, Ben McKeown, in the sweet snap which also featured Pete, 28, and his wife, Paige, at a wedding.

The fan-favourite brother and sister duo’s famous great uncle, Paul Elliot, 74, or Paul Chuckle as he was known as part of the Chuckle Brothers, also attended the wedding, and has given her boyfriend the seal of approval.

Commenting on her post, he said: “Looking good guys great to see you all yesterday with @juliejohnson31 @cunny246 to celebrate Jack and @emma_louuise_ wedding.

“You all look stunning but didn't look like that at end of the night!”

Sophie replied to her uncle, saying: “Such a lovely day! See you all again soon, lots of love to you and auntie sue xx”

Paul wrote back: “Fabulous day and so good to see you all again xx.”

Sophie looked fantastic in the snap, in a psychedelic printed dress in shades of blue, pink, beige and black.

She wore her caramel tresses in loose curls and accessorised with strappy heels and a white clutch bag as she beamed whilst holding a glass of champagne.


Her new man smiled alongside her, looking dapper in a three-piece suit and a pink tie to match his girlfriend’s outfit.

The snap prompted Sophie’s fans to comment on the post, with one saying: “Is Sophie loved up?”

Another wrote: “Aww you Look Lovely Sophie and so Happy.”

The snap also commanded attention for another reason, as Sophie’s followers flocked to comment about Pete’s “stunning” wife, Paige.

One said: “That’s Pete’s wife?!” with a shocked emoji.

Someone else said: ”Is that Peter's girlfriend there?” and after someone replied "his wife” they said: "She's gorgeous.”

Another said: “She’s stunning”.

One cheeky comment said: “Nahhhh Pete is punching”. P

Pete and Paige married in a secret ceremony in May 2021, and welcomed their son, Jimmy in September 2021.

The tiny tot made his TV debut alongside his dad and auntie the same month, with fans taking to Twitter to gush over the newborn.

One wrote: "Omg Pete and his baby my heart!!!”

Another added: "Oh Pete mate! What a great start to a new #Gogglebox series. Your boy is a smasher."
