Gogglebox star Pete Sandiford is no doubt a fan-favourite armchair critic on the popular Channel 4 reality show.

The 29-year-old and his sister Sophie often have us laughing away with their clever quips and one-liners every Friday night on the programme. But when he's not giving his opinion on the week's biggest TV shows, what does he do for work? Find out all we know below…

What does Gogglebox's Pete Sandiford do for a living?

While Pete has become a household name thanks to his regular appearances on Gogglebox, which he joined with Sophie back in 2017, their Channel 4 pay cheques aren't quite enough to make it a full-time job.

So when he's not settling down to watch TV with his younger sister, Pete works as a building company boss, while Sophie is a florist.

Both siblings have made a career change in recent years, as Pete previously worked in insurance while Sophie held a retail position at Debenhams until it fell into administration in 2019. 

Pete is also a doting dad to his one-year-old son, Jimmy, whom he welcomed with his wife Paige in September 2021, four months after they tied the knot in a stunning coastal ceremony.

Speaking about fatherhood while attending the NTAs in 2021, Pete told HELLO! and other reporters: "It's a bit overwhelming, got it all going on at the moment! I've been up all night, I slept on the train here - got suitcases under my eyes, you just got me at a good time now."

The couple's family of three is set to expand in the coming months as Paige is pregnant with their second child. 

The expectant dad announced the happy news during an episode of Gogglebox that aired in December last year. Speaking to his son Jimmy, who made a special appearance on the programme, he said: "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!"
