Googlebox Sophie Sandiford thrills with unrecognisable throwback of brother Pete

Gogglebox favourites Sophie and Pete Sandiford look unrecognisable in a childhood throwback snap.

Sophie, 24, logged into her Instagram account on Thursday to pay mark her older sibling Pete's 27th birthday.

She shared an hilarious photo of her and her brother from their younger days wearing retro 90s attire in view of her 262,000 followers.

The northern lass looked adorable in plain yellow t-shirt, blue jeans and some gun lasses in her hand.

Pete already has a cheeky grin to his face as he rocked a back-turned cap and substantial sunglasses.

His classic looking tracksuit trousers are finished off with some iconic Velco-strapped trainers.

Sophie captioned the post: "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.

"Whereever life takes us, I hope we remain best friends forever. Wishing you all the happiness the world has to offer. Love ya r kid @sandifordpete."

Sophie's followers rushed to the comments section to wish Pete a happy birthday and told her how much they love their sibling bond.

One fan penned: "Adorable. Happy birthday Pete! You two have me howling with laughter every week."

Another added: "My favourite siblings. Happy Birthday Pete."

A third person posted: "This world needs more real honest, sincere relationships, like you two."

While a fourth said: "You two are hilarious on gogglebox! Ace to watch how close you both are."

Sophie and Pete, from Blackpool, catapulted to fame back in 2017 as part of the tenth series of Gogglebox and have been fan favourites ever since.

Their relationship, which mainly consists of taking the mick out of each other and endless drinking cups of tea, has been a hit with fans.

Sophie broke down in tears over the new lockdown rules during a recent episode of the Channel 4 series.

The duo were watching Boris Johnson's announcement for the second lockdown, which is scheduled to end on December 2.

But as they watched the Prime Minister, Pete noticed his younger sister had gone quiet and asked on her to check on her.

Sophie wiped away tears and sobbed as she said: "It's just sad, isn't it? It's s*** for everybody and it's gonna get ever worse.

"More people will lose their jobs, it's just awful."

Pete comforted his sister and urged her to stop crying, saying it would set him off otherwise.

Before getting upset, Sophie remarked that her place of work would be forced to close during the second lockdown.

Sophie works as a shop window dresser, while her brother Pete has a job in insurance outside of the show.

Gogglebox continues on Channel 4 on Friday at 9pm
