Gogglebox Sophie Sandifords mystery man exposed as famous uncle gives approval

Over the weekend Gogglebox 's Sophie Sandiford ignited romance rumours after she posed with a mystery man at a wedding – but now Sophie's new beau's identity has been revealed.

The hunky fella that she could be seen standing beside at a pal's wedding, alongside her brother Pete Sandiford and his wife Paige Yeomans, has been revealed to be a hunky Irishman named Ben.

According to The Sun his name is Ben McKeown, and the publication reports he is from Northern Ireland and studied at Glasgow University.

Ben has reportedly already met Sophie and Pete's famous great uncle, Paul Chuckle, and it seems he has his approval.

The ChuckleVision legend commented on the infamous snap of the quartet that Sophie posted on Instagram.

Paul penned: "Looking good guys great to see you all yesterday with @juliejohnson31 @cunny246 to celebrate Jack and @emma_louuise_ wedding..

"You all look stunning but didn’t look like that at end of the night!"

Sophie replied: "Such a lovely day! See you all again soon, lots of love to you and auntie sue xx."

Sophie hasn't spoken out about her rumoured boyfriend, but Daily Star has contacted her rep to obtain comment.

This comes after she posted the snap over the weekend and a slew of romance rumours were ignited.

Standing alongside who we think to be Ben, her brother Pete and his wife Paige, Sophie could be seen wearing a colourful dress and holding a white handbag.

Looking ultra glamorous, she beamed for the camera clearly content with the company she was in.

After the snap was uploaded, comments and speculation came in thick and fast.

One fan took to the comments to ask: "Is Sophie loved up?"

Another quizzed: "Are you engaged?"

While someone cheekily quipped: "Your boy looks like Giovanni from Strictly."

And a fourth added: "Wow you two!!!!! Looking great and your partners."

Not much is known about Sophie's love life because she keeps it under wraps, but her brother Pete is happily married to his wife Paige, whom he welcomed son Jimmy with last September.

Gogglebox airs every Friday at 9pm on Channel 4 and All4.
