Gogglebox star Sophie Sandiford gave fans glimpse into family life with rare picture of sister

Sophie Sandiford shared a sweet photo of her rarely-seen sister Lucy and fans couldn’t believe how alike they looked

Blackpool Gogglebox star Sophie Sandiford has shared a rare picture with her lookalike sister as fans all ask the same question.

The floristry business owner has been away from our television screens since the end of May when the 19th series of Gogglebox concluded. Over the last three months the 26-year-old has shared very little of her summer activities with her followers on Instagram.

The Gogglebox fan favourite broke her social media silence in June with snaps of her posing in a poncho at Leyland Festival with her brother Pete and his wife. Last night (August 29) made her first post in eight weeks with a rare image with her sister Lucy, giving fans a glimpse into her family life.

She captioned the black and white post “Sis” with a loveheart emoji as she tagged Lucy in the post. Sophie is normally seen with older brother Pete on the sofa as they give their witty and cutting remarks on the week’s TV offering but not much is known about the rest of their family off-screen.

Followers raced to comment on the image, with many in disbelief at how alike they looked while others asked when Gogglebox is returning for season 20.

Eileen said “Double trouble” while Mick said “You look like twins more than sisters.”

Darren added “Looking great, look so alike” and Ali asked “Beautiful girls and gorgeous picture @sophiesandiford. Does @llucyjohnson share the family humour?”

Tony then asked “When you back on tele?” before another fan joined in saying “When are you back?!! Friday nights aren’t the same without the GB crew!”

A third agreed, saying “We need you back on the TV” while another said “Can’t wait to see you and Pete in September”

Channel 4 bosses have confirmed series 20 will return on Friday, September 9. Although it hasn’t yet been confirmed who will take part in the upcoming new series, other iconic cast members such as Jenny and Lee, The Malones, Ellie and Izzi, and The Siddiqus are expected to feature.
