Gogglebox fans have gone wild after show favourite Pete Sandiford revealed his wife Paige Yeomans is pregnant with their second child during the latest episode of the Channel 4 show.

Pete and Paige are already parents to one-year-old son Jimmy and the little one made a rare appearance on the show as his dad casually let slip the news that another baby Sandiford is on the way.

Jimmy was sitting on Pete's sister Sophie Sandiford's lap when his dad told him, "You're going to have to make the most of the attention Jimbers, now you're going to have a little brother or sister coming. You're going to have to milk it!"

Sophie added, "Yeah, you're going to be a big brother," before both she and Pete cheered at the exciting news.

Pete was the second Gogglebox star to announce baby news in the same episode as Ellie Warner had revealed she was pregnant at the start of the show when she shared a baby scan picture with her sister Izzi.

Fans were loving the double pregnancy announcement and took to social media to share their excitement, with one tweeting, "2 new babies on #Gogglebox what lovely news 😄😄."

Another wrote, "Second pregnancy announcement?! 🥲🥲 Congratulations to Pete and his wife! 👶🏻 #Gogglebox."

A third remarked, "Aw so happy for Ellie and Pete! #Gogglebox."

Pete's first child Jimmy was born last September. Opening up about being a new dad while appearing on the red carpet at the National Television Awards in the same month, Pete told the Mirror, "It's a bit overwhelming, got it all going on at the moment!

"He's a cool little lad, takes after his mum not me!"
