In April 2020, she broke down in tears in an emotional Twitter post as she revealed her sister-in-law's daughter had passed away.

Meanwhile, this is further pain for Sandra, who earlier this year admitted to The Sun that she was back on benefits, four years after leaving Gogglebox.

As the show’s popularity grew, duo Sandi and Sandra were invited to every red carpet event, and enjoying the life of luxury.

But, in 2016, Sandi left to pursue other career opportunities, including a stint on Celebrity Big Brother.

“It was hard,” Sandra told The Sun in March. “I had a panic attack, thinking I was going to go back on benefits.”

Sandra managed to find a friend to go on the show with her, but claims producers weren’t keen on having someone with an American accent, so she eventually opted for her daughter Chanchez Martin.

However, she eventually left Gogglebox, two years years after Sandi.

Since then Sandra has appeared on a number of other shows including Celebrity First Dates and 100 years younger in 21 days.
