Pete and Sophie’s new family addition

During last week’s episode of the Channel 4 show, the siblings showed off their new Corgi called Colin.

Colin even tried to drink a cup of coffee which was on the table.

Pete said: “Woah, don’t be drinking the brew!”

Sophie added: “He’ll be off his [bleep].”
