Normal service resumed shortly after as Sophie took her usual place beside her brother with a cup of tea in one of her impressive animal-themed mugs from the pair's infamous collection.

This is the first time that Jimmy has appeared on the show, although he was heard during the opening episode of the current series when Pete took a quick call from his wife Paige and the sweet moment was caught on camera.

Paige's voice and Jimmy's cute babbling could be heard on the other end of the phone before Pete wrapped up their conversation. "Alright well I'll let you go and sort Jimmy out. I love you, miss you, bye-bye," he said before making kissing noises and hanging up.

Not much is known about Pete's other half besides the fact that she is an emergency services call handler and has a degree in English and linguistics. The TV star has always been tight-lipped about their relationship, but it's believed that they have been together since at least October 2020, as that's when Pete shared his first Instagram photo featuring his other half
