Gogglebox’s Pete Sandiford gets birthday message from famous uncle Paul Chuckle

Gogglebox star Pete Sandiford received a hilarious birthday message from his famous uncle this week.

The 27-year-old shared a rare snap of his special day with his newborn son, who he finally revealed to his 435,000 followers is called Jimmy.

The Channel 4 star tagged his sister and co-star Sophie and his new wife Paige in the post.

He captioned the sweet photo: "Jimmy wishing his daddy a happy birthday."

However, the newborn looked furious as he stared at his father while Pete laughed at the camera.

Pete's famous great-uncle, Paul Chuckle, 74, commented: "Fancy frightening little Jimmy on your birthday [laughing face emoji].

"Happy Birthday mate a good un x," he added, ending the post by adding a birthday cake emoji.

The comedy veteran announced they were related three years ago.

He wrote: "This day 2018 with my great niece and nephew."

A few days later, Paul – whose real name is Paul Elliott – told fans he is a "proud uncle" to the pair in another snap.

Paul and his little brother Barry were among the biggest names in children's TV for decades as The Chuckle Brothers.

Barry sadly died in August 2018, and Sophie paid tribute to her beloved great uncle calling him a "truly lovely and funny man to be around."

She wrote: "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. Lots of love from me, to you."

Making people laugh must run in the family as Sophie and Pete followed in their great uncles' footsteps, starring on Gogglebox. And they've appeared in plenty of sweet snaps with their uncles previously.

Pete's Channel 4 co-stars also wished the star happy birthday, joining Paul in the comments section to show him their love.

Ellie Warner wrote: "Happy birthday daddy cool!"

Daniel Lustig added: "Happy birthday mate x."

Katie Price's ex Kris Boyson also joined in writing: "Happy Birthday you funny f**ker!"

Pete's son Jimmy made his debut on Gogglebox earlier this season cradled in the new father's arms.

The 27-year-old admitted he felt quite "overwhelmed" by his new fathering role.
