Gogglebox fans would be forgiven for not recognising star of the sofa Sophie Sandiford in her latest Instagram snap.

Sporting a gorgeous plunging silk geometric print dress and nude platform heels, Sophie looks incredible with her chocolate-brown hair coiffed to perfection.

Smiling at the camera, holding a glass of fizz, the star's post provoked a flurry of excitement from her fans.

One excitedly posted: "Looking absolutely fantastic!" While another simply said: "Stunning" followed by a heart emoji.

The 24-year-old reality star is best known for making the nation laugh on Friday nights on the Channel 4 show, alongside her older brother Pete, 26.

The Northern duo provide a barrel of entertainment for viewers with their cheeky quips, but behind the smiles and cameras, Sophie's life took a tumble last year as she sadly lost her day job as a window dresser at the department store – due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sophie showed her emotions as she let her tears flow during Gogglebox filming as she discussed the pandemic with her brother Pete and her fears of losing her job.

"It's just sad isn't it," she replied, wiping away her tears. "It's just s**t for everybody, it's going to get even worse, more people are going to lose their jobs and things like that, it's just awful."

Pete said: "Aww don't get upset kid, don't because you'll set me off!"

Sophie announced the news she had lost her retail job in December 2020, with a photo of herself and a friend at the entrance of Debenhams wearing a pattered face mask and a staff key chain that appeared to have a bottle of hand sanitiser attached to it.

She captioned the photo: "We might be going but we are going with a smile #debenhams ".

However the fan favourite has embarked on an exciting new chapter in her life since losing her job in retail.

In recent months, Sophie has carved herself a new career as a florist – a completely different move to her former job at Debenhams.

Overjoyed with the move, Sophie announced it on Gogglebox – telling her brother about her intense training course.

She revealed pink leather gardening gloves after Pete mistook them for golfing gloves.

Sophie explained: "They're not golfing gloves, they're [for] floristry.

The TV personality lives with her brother in Blackpool, which means they have been able to film for Gogglebox during lockdown.

The two siblings initially lived with their parents in the first series, but it's unknown if they are still living with their parents, or if they have their own place.

Sophie's brother Pete works in the insurance industry and is engaged to Paige Yeomans.
