Gogglebox favourites Sophie and Pete Sandiford had an extra special guest join them on Friday night in the form of the new dad’s baby son, with fans calling him a ‘natural’.

The Channel 4 show returned tonight, with everyone’s favourite sofa critics giving their verdicts on some of the biggest TV moments of the week.

But there was someone else joining the cast this evening as Pete’s young son Jimmy was in on the action too, two months after he made his debut.

The brother-and-sister duo was seen fawning over the baby in the opening moments of the show as Pete sat holding the youngster on his lap.

Viewers quickly commented on the adorable introduction, with one writing on Twitter: ‘Pete’s son is adorable #Gogglebox #gogglebox #GoggleboxFriday.’

‘Blimey, that baby looks very much like Pete! #Gogglebox,’ another commented.


A third said: ‘Awww I miss that stage of babies……Pete does have a cute baby #Gogglebox.’

‘Oh, how cute is Pete’s baby! his pj’s #Gogglebox,’ added a fan, with another sharing: ‘Kudos to Pete.  Shout out to all the good Dads #Gogglebox.’

Pete, 26, revealed the name of the newborn just a few hours before he was seen on-screens, in a very cute Instagram post on Friday afternoon.

He shared a photo of himself and his son, who was dressed in an animal-themed towel, with the caption: ‘Jimmy wishing his daddy a happy birthday,’ tagging his sister Sophie and wife Paige in the post.

On Friday night, Jimmy was dressed in little stripy pyjamas with a small white blanket on top.

Pete confirmed he and his wife Paige had welcomed the baby back in September.

Speaking at the NTA’s, Pete confirmed the arrival, telling The Mirror: ‘It’s a bit overwhelming, got it all going on at the moment.

He went on to reflect on what it was like to be a parent for the first time, adding: ‘I’ve been up all night. I slept on the train here. [I’ve usually] got suitcases under my eyes, you just got me at a good time now.’

Gogglebox airs Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 4.
