Sandra's BFF has left the sofa, and we can't cope :((((
We have some sad news for Gogglebox fans… one of our favourite pairings is splitting up. NOOOO.
If you watched Friday’s episode, you’ll have noticed that Sandi Bogle was missing from the sofa, leaving her BFF Sandra Martin to appear with her daughter Chanchez.
Of course, viewers were very confused – and VERY concerned that the pair may have fallen out.
Tweets included: ‘Have Sandy and Sandra fallen out? Brad and Angelina was enough pain for one year #gogglebox,’ and: ‘Hope Sandy & Sandra haven’t fallen out [sic].’
A show source later reassured fans that nothing had changed, telling MailOnline: ‘Sandi had other commitments which meant she was unable to take part in filming for tonight’s episode.
‘It’s a real shame because it’s the 100th show and it would have been amazing to have a proper celebration.
‘They are real characters and viewers love them together. Sandi will be back at a later date.’
However, it’s now been confirmed that Chanchez will be taking Sandi’s place for the foreseeable future.
An insider says: ‘We are delighted that Sandra’s daughter Chanchez is to join the show next series. She’s a great addition to the cast.
‘Sandi has decided to leave the show to pursue her singing career and other opportunities and we wish her all the very best.’
Sandra has since made it clear that everything’s A-okay between her and her bezzie, Tweeting: ‘TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN .ME AND SANDI IS FRINDZ 4 LIFE..AM NOT REPEAT DIS AGAIN.SO PLEASE SURPOURT HER &JACK ROSE XMAS SINGLE 4 A G.O.S.H🎅🎅🎅 [sic].’
Phew. And it seems as though Sandi’s music career is already on the up.
She’s joined forces with 15-year-old singer-songwriter Jack Rose to release a new version of White Christmas, with all proceeds going to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
What a wonderful cause. Wishing you lots of luck for the future, Sandi!
