Gogglebox star Sophie Sandiford shares she is training as a florist

Gogglebox star Sophie Sandiford has revealed she is training to be a florist.

Sophie worked for Debenhams before being laid off by the retail giant due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And now the 26-year-old has decided to swap clothes for carnations in a completely different career change.

An emotional Sophie sobbed on TV to her brother Pete after discovering she might be made redundant.

But the resilient reality star is ready to embrace a new challenge.

And Sophie has received plenty of support from fans who have wished her well in her new endeavours.

One delighted fan tweeted: "@PeteandSophie I love that you're going to be learning florist but as a florist of almost 20yrs I have no idea how you're going to get anything done with those gloves on."

Another added: "@PeteandSophie is definitely the florist I'd end up spending 2 hours just gossiping with."

Siblings Sophie and Peter, who live together in Blackpool, are popular on the hit ITV show, especially for their dry sense of humour.

But in December last year Sophie lost her job at Debenhams and was worried about her future career despite earnings from the show.

She shared a photo of herself on her social media with a staff key chain and said: "We might be going but we are going with a smile #debenhams."

Speaking on the show the previous month, Sophie admitted to her bro: "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!"

In the same show Pete revealed he had become engaged to his girlfriend Paige Yeomans.

Sophie enquired: "Do you feel any different now that you've got engaged?"

"Yeah, I think," he replied. "I feel like an even bigger responsibility. I don't know why. I'm going to have a wife."

"Yes, you're going to have a wife," Sophie pointed out.
