The Blackpool siblings returned with their iconic mugs to the show as Sophie, 23, asked her big brother how felt about becoming a husband.
“Do you feel any different now that you’ve got engaged?” she asked the 26-year-old.
He replied “Yeah, I think. I feel like an even bigger responsibility. I don’t know why. I’m going to have a wife.”
“Yes, you’re going to have a wife,” Sophie agreed.

Sophie wanted to know who he would choose as his best man.
“Well it’s going to be my best wo-man, isn’t it?” Pete told her. “It will be you.”
“Correct. “Course it will! I’ll not be wearing a tux, I’ll be wearing my own dress,” Sophie clarified.
Pete protested: “Woah! You’re going to have to wear a suit.”

“I’m not going to be wearing a friggin’ suit,” she replied.
When Pete asked why she refused to wear the suit, Sophie explained: “No way am I… listen! Right, actually I know your mates, I’m not copying any of them. I’ll bring me own!”
Gogglebox viewers were thrilled at Pete’s happy news, while some of his more keen fans expressed disappointment that he was off the market.
“PETE GOT ENGAGED! Amazing,” wrote one Twitter user.
