Sophie Sandiford has celebrated her brother Pete’s 27th birthday by sharing an epic throwback photo of when they were young children.
The 24-year-old is one of the most popular TV watchers on Channel 4’s Gogglebox and she has delighted fans with a glimpse into their childhood.
Posting a photo them both together, Pete looks like he is no older than the first years of primary school while Sophie is not much older than a toddler.
Pete already has a cheeky grin to his face as he rocks a back-turned cap and substantial sunglasses.
He has classic looking tracksuit trousers which are finished off with velco-strapped trainers, which became the focus of an exchange on Instagram between the siblings.
Sophie paid tribute to Pete in her caption, writing: “Happy birthday to the best big brother in the world!
“May there be many more years that I make you dress up in silly costumes, we laugh, cry and scream our heads off.
“Where ever life takes us, I hope we remain best friends forever. Wishing you all the happiness the world has to offer. Love ya r kid.”
Pete replied to the comment: “The Velcro on those shoes was a bit long – need another pair of them.”
It would seem that his dream could come true, if he keeps himself off Santa’s naughty list.
Sophie wrote: “@sandifordpete maybe Father Christmas might bring you some with some chord pants if you’re lucky.”
The photos and comments brought a warm response among Sophie’s 262,000 followers, who celebrated the Gogglebox favourites.”
One fan wrote: “Adorable. Happy birthday Pete! You two have me howling with laughter every week.”
Another added: “You two are hilarious on gogglebox! Ace to watch how close you both are.”
Pete is no stranger to dressing up and he was recently subject of numerous complaints to Ofcom after he dressed up in sexy lingerie for a joke stunt on the show.
He had younger sister Sophie Sandiford snorting with horrified glee as he hobbled into their living room trussed up in a lacy black body, a tight zip-up mini skirt, fishnets and spiky black high heels.
Pete finished off the outrageous look with a black curly wig and attempted to sit down without flashing too much as Sophie screamed with laughter.Nearly stumbling as he made his way to safety, Pete moaned: “Oh my God, I’m going to have to take these heels off – how do women wear this s**t?”
“I look like a d***head, honestly – this outfit says: ‘I’m getting c**k tonight’,” he joked.
Sophie interjected to laugh, “That is the look we were going for”, as Pete hit back to insist: “Well it’s not the look I want to give off!”
*Gogglebox continues next Friday at 9pm on Channel 4
