Gogglebox star Pete Sandiford has revealed that he has become a dad after welcoming a son with his fiancée Paige Yeomans.

The Channel 4 star, who accepted the award for best Factual at the National Television Awards alongside his sister Sophie Sandiford, described how he was 'overwhelmed' by his new role as a father but described how his little boy was a 'cool lad'.

Speaking about becoming a father, Pete told The Mirror, "It's a bit overwhelming, got it all going on at the moment!"

The TV personality, 26, also revealed how he was lacking in sleep and said that he had a nap on the train from Blackpool to the star-studded event, which is sponsored by OK!, at London's O2 Arena.

Pete first announced the baby news in April during an episode of Gogglebox as viewers watched on from the comfort of their own homes.

Proper little baby now," Pete's sister Sophie, 23, said as she held up a picture of an ultrasound, before adding: "My little niece or nephew. They look like me?"

Amused, Pete joked "No, he'll be good looking like me or Paige," as Sophie responded: "You cheeky git!"

Pete, who was recently trolled after sharing a snap of himself with Paige, then said: "Ain't it mad? I am actually going to be a dad to somebody," as Sophie agreed: "Crazy!"

It comes after Gogglebox's Julie Malone paid tribute to the cast members who have sadly died in an emotional speech at the NTAs.

The cast and crew of the show, including Tom and Julie Malone and Pete and Sophie Sandiford, accepted the award for best Factual.

Brother and sister Pete and Sophie, from Blackpool, took to the stage to thank the production team and co-stars for their dedication to the show.

Sophie handed the mic to Julie who paid tribute to Andy Michael, who died aged 61 in August following a short illness, Pete McGarry, who died aged 71 just days after he was diagnosed with bowel cancer in June, Mary Cook, who died aged 92 in August, and June Bernicoff who died aged 82 in May last year.

Holding the award, Julie, who looked gorgeous in a off-shoulder purple dress, said: "On behalf of all the Gogglebox families I'd just like to say thank you for this award and on a sadder note I would like to nominate it to all of the people we have lost sadly over the past 18 months to two years.

"That's Andy, Pete, Mary and everybody's favourite grandma June who is now reunited with Leon. Thank you so much."

The Channel 4 show was nominated alongside Gordon, Gino and Fred: American Road Trip, Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs and Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death.
