Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Gogglebox's Sophie Sandiford recently unveiled her new career move of floristry after she lost her job during lockdown.

The 24-year-old Channel 4 star, who entertains fans each week alongside her brother Pete, lost her day job as a window dresser at Debenhams.

Sophie was gutted as she was made redundant as the department store chain collapsed during lockdown.

During an emotional moment on Gogglebox before she lost her job, Sophie burst into tears after hearing all non-essential shops were set to close during the pandemic.

Peter asked her what classed as a 'non-essential shop'.

Sophie tearfully said: "If you don't sell food, it's just like last time. So my work will shut."

Sophie recently revealed her new area of work as she's pursuing a career in floristry.

During Gogglebox, the star told her brother about her training course as she showed off her new gardening gloves.

She revealed the pink leather gardening gloves after Pete thought they were golfing gloves.

Sophie corrected her brother as she explained: "They're not golfing gloves, they're [for] floristry.

"It's called conditioning the flowers – when you're pulling the leaves off – you need a bit of protection."

In a different episode, Sophie revealed what she's been working on while training in the flower-themed career.

She said to her sibling: "I've been practising my flowers, do you want to see the bouquets I've made?"

"Go on then, let's have a look," he replied.

Sophie warned: "It's got eucalyptus in."

Peter yelled: "I've got eucalyptus in my eye! Why didn't you tell me not to rub my eyes?!"

"Obviously I'll have to put a little disclaimer on," Sophie replied as Pete said: "I'm suing."

"I'm gonna ruin your business now before it's even started darling!" he joked.

After losing her job, Sophie returned to Debenhams for the first time after restrictions relaxed.

She posted a snap to her Instagram page as she posed alongside one of her colleagues.

Sophie captioned the photograph: "We might be going but we are going with a smile," followed by a heart emoji and the hashtag 'Debenhams'.
