Sophie Sandiford is best known as the “mannequin” who broke down in tears on Gogglebox after seeing a video of her brother Pete suffering from an injury. After her husband’s death, she started to channel her emotions into something positive by appearing on the popular show.
Sophie Sandiford and her brother Pete have been on the show for a while now. They are known for their heated arguments, with Sophie often in tears. The parents of these two siblings have also made an appearance on the show.

As they watched horrific images of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Gogglebox actress Sophie Sandiford couldn’t hold back her emotions as she imagined what it would be like if her brother Pete Sandiford went to war.
More than one million people have been evacuated from the nation in the days since Vladimir Putin initiated his offensive.
Under President Volodymyr Zelensky’s proclamation, males between the ages of 18 and 60 are prohibited from leaving the nation as reserves, and civilians are called upon to fight.
The stars of Gogglebox watched a news broadcast on the violence on the most recent episode of the show, which included video of an armoured vehicle running over a car, people leaving the country, and air attacks on Ukraine.

Pete, who has been on the Channel 4 show alongside his sister since 2017, said he didn’t know how he would react if forced to engage in a battle.
‘I’m not sure how I’d feel if I was detained and forced to fight in the war.’ What do you do, after all? You can’t say, “No, I’m not going,” but on the other hand, do I really want to get fired at and perhaps killed? What is more important to me?’ he stated

Sophie started crying as she said, ‘I’m choking up just thinking about it.’ ‘Cause I’d simply remain with you.’
In his efforts to soothe Sophie, Pete insisted on not letting her remain behind.
‘You wouldn’t, would you?’ You little soft a**e, I f**king wouldn’t allow you. You’re going to make me weep if you keep doing this, k***head. ‘We’ve arrived, you f**king moron!’ he exclaimed.

‘I know, but it’s just terrifying,’ she said, wiping away her tears.
Several Gogglebox viewers expressed their sadness at Pete and Sophie’s talk on Twitter, with one writing, “Thanks Sophie and Pete, I’m now a blubbering mess!”
‘Sophie & Pete choked me up, it’s true you can’t help but put yourselves in their shoes,’ someone else commented.
‘Pete and Sophie just crushed my heart,’ said another, while a third said, ‘Pete and Sophie have me bawling.’ They have such a deep sibling relationship.’
Channel 4 has further information.
It was claimed today that 100 people may have been buried beneath debris after a residential neighborhood near Kyiv was bombarded the day before.
After authorities enacted laws that the broadcaster’s director-general Tim Davie claimed looked to ‘criminalise the practice of independent journalism,’ the broadcaster has announced that it is ‘temporarily halting’ all News activities in Russia.
Gogglebox is back on Channel 4 next Friday at 9 p.m.
