Gogglebox’s Sophie Sandiford looks besotted as she holds hands with boyfriend

Gogglebox star Sophie Sandiford has been seen holding hands with boyfriend Ben McKeown in their first public outing together, confirming their relationship while out on a loved-up stroll.

The 24 year old was seen beaming as she was pictured linking arms with her Irish bearded beau as they visited Maddison’s Café Bar in Blackpool.

Sophie looked casually stylish wearing a light brown jumper dress with semi-sheer black tights and a pair of black chunky lace-up boots and a matching Gucci handbag to complete the look.

The lovable TV star wore her ombre brown hair loosely showing of slight waves and sported natural make-up as she ventured out with boyfriend Ben, who was dressed in a black T-shirt and puffer jacket, grey jeans and white and yellow trainers.

The pair looked to be enjoying their day out together as they travelled down by the coast in Sophie’s blue Citroen car before heading into the nearby café.

Sophie introduced her new boyfriend to fans in March as she posted a photo of Ben with herself and her brother Pete, 26, and his wife Paige while attending a wedding.

The Channel 4 star’s famous great uncle Paul Chuckle of the Chuckle Brothers seemed to give his approval of the pairing as he commented: “Looking good guys great to see you all yesterday with @juliejohnson31 @cunny246 to celebrate Jack and @emma_louuise_ wedding…”


At the time, Sophie had not actually confirmed her new relationship, leaving fans questioning who mystery man Ben was.

Struck by his handsome looks, many were also taken by Ben’s tall stature which lead to an argument on a recent episode of Gogglebox as Sophie’s brother Pete clashed with her over her boyfriend’s height.

"You, first time meeting him 'oh, I thought you'd be taller,' as you looked up at him,” Sophie said.

“And then saying 'I thought you were at least 6ft' when he is 6ft.”

Not convinced at Ben’s tall measurement, Pete replied "He doesn't look 6ft…lies, already built on lies."

Sophie clapped back: "Just because he makes you look like one of the Borrowers!"

Fans joined in on the discourse as they gave their opinions on that they reckoned Ben’s height is.

“There is no way he is over 6ft", one person wrote on social media, adding laughing face emojis.

Another added: "Pete's right he's only 5ft 4….", while someone else said: "Decent for 5ft 11!"
