GOGGLEBOX star Sophie Sandiford broke down in tears on the Channel 4 show tonight after a second national lockdown was announced
The 24-year-old, who appears on the show with her brother Pete, cried as they watched PM Boris Johnson outline the new measures.
Noticing his sister wiping away a tear, the 26-yaer-old asked her: “Are you all right?”
She replied, with her voice breaking: “It’s just sad, innit, it’s just s**t for everybody.
“It just gets even worse and more people are going to lose their jobs and things like that. It’s just awful.”
He told her: “Don’t be upset kid. No, because you’ll set me off.”
Viewers at home were emotional too, with one writing: “So true, was really moving, summed up mood/feelings of entire country and beyond.”
Another tweeted: “Seeing someone like Sophie who’s always funny and happy cry about the state of the country does hit home about how utterly s**t things are at the moment.”
A third wrote: “I think every single person can relate to Sophie’s emotions on #Gogglebox tonight.”
Another posted: “So Sophie on @C4Gogglebox has just made me feel sad and like I wanted to give her a massive hug – you speak for many of us hun xxx.”
