Gogglebox star Pete Sandiford has revealed his baby’s name in a hilarious Instagram post – and his famous great uncle joined in with the banter in the comments.

Pete and his wife, Paige, have remained tight-lipped about family life, getting married in secret and not revealing many details about their son, who was born earlier this year.

He revealed his baby to Gogglebox viewers back in September but failed to mention his name – but the latest Instagram update has revealed that the little boy is called Jimmy.

Pete, from Blackpool, is pictured holding his crying newborn baby and the photo is captioned: “Jimmy wishing his daddy a happy birthday.”

Many people took to the comments section to wish Pete a happy birthday, including a children’s television icon.

However, this wasn’t a random post as Pete and Sophie Sandiford are actually related to the Chuckle Brothers - Barry and Paul Elliott.

One half of the Chuckle Brothers, Paul Elliott, replied to the post and said: “Fancy frightening little Jimmy on your birthday ... Happy birthday mate have a good un.”

Paul has shared multiple photos of himself with the Sandiford siblings as he is their great uncle.



In one post he shared a throwback image of the trio, which was taken back in 2018.

In another which was taken in 2019, Paul shared an image of a lunch date he took the family out on.

On Twitter, he wrote: “Look who we had a very nice lunch with @pinklarkholme, #ProudUncle, @Petesandiford, @PeteandSophie, @llucyjohnson”.



When Barry passed away in August 2018, Sophie paid tribute to her uncle, writing: “You filled millions of childhoods with laughter and entertainment including mine and Peter’s. You will be sadly missed by many. Rest in peace Uncle Barry.”
