Gogglebox’s Sophie has viewers in tears as she sobs over new lockdown terror

Gogglebox star Sophie Sandiford broke down in tears on Friday’s show as she watched Boris Johnson’s new lockdown announcement.

The 24-year-old watches the telly with her brother Pete, 26, and the Northern duo always have viewers in stitches with their cheeky quips.

But it was a rare sombre moment for Sophie as she suddenly burst into tears, being comforted by her big brother.

Sophie works as a window dresser, and as the new lockdown closed all non-essential shops, Sophie was utterly terrified she would lose her job.

Pete asked: “What do they class as non-essential shops?”

Sophie replied: “If you don’t sell food, it’s just like last time. So my work will shut.”

“You alright?” he asked her, as he noticed she was silently crying.

Pete begged his little sister not to get upset otherwise he would too

“It’s just sad isn’t it,” she replied, wiping away her tears. “It’s just s**t for everybody, it’s going to get even worse, more people are going to lose their jobs and things like that, it’s just awful.”

Pete said: “Aww don’t get upset kid, don’t because you’ll set me off!”

Viewers took to Twitter to share how much they felt for Sophie, as one wrote: “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.”
