She wrote: “Mum, thank you for always being there, for always knowing what to say, for always making me laugh, for always supporting me in everything I do, but most importantly thank you for being you.

“I genuinely don’t know what I’d do without you. Love you so much mum.”

Oh wow I saw the photo I thought it was your sister.

The picture shocked Gogglebox fans in the comments who thought Sophie was the “double” of Julie. Others said they thought the pair looked like sisters, or even twins.

One said: “Wow, twins.”

A second echoed that, commenting: “I thought it was your twin.”

A third wrote: “Wow, she literally looks like yours and Peter’s twin.”

“Oh wow I saw the photo I thought it was your sister,” said a fourth.

Someone else put: “Omg you are double of each other, look like sisters.”

Sophie’s new career path

It follows Sophie’s news that she has landed herself a new job.

The Channel 4 favourite spoke about becoming a florist during Friday’s (March 12) episode of the show.

Sophie was tearful last year as she announced she was made redundant from her job at Debenhams, following the department store chain’s collapse.

But she’s now training to become a florist.

During Gogglebox, she showed Pete her new gloves and he said: “I was wondering what they were in the kitchen.”

She told him: “It’s my new gloves for my floristry course.”

Pete joked: “They’re golfing gloves.”

As they chatted about Sophie’s budding new career, Pete asked why she would need gloves.

Sophie explained: “Because [when] conditioning the flowers – when you’re pulling the leaves off – you need a bit of protection.”

Pete then quipped, causing them both to double over with laughter: “Well if you’re dealing with roses you’re used to dealing with little [bleep] aren’t you?”
