'I'm getting married again!' - Gogglebox star Sandra Martin announces engagement
New home and new man for reality star
Former ‘Gogglebox’ star Sandra Martin is getting married.
The 56-year-old reality star - who starred in the Channel 4 show alongside best pal Sandi Bogle from its beginnings in 2013 until her exit in 2017 - took to Twitter on Monday to reveal she is set to marry for the fourth time in February next year, after proposing to her boyfriend.

In a series of tweets, Sandra - who is also known as Queen Bee - wrote: “NOT ONLY I GOT A NEW PERMANENT HOME WHOOP WHOOP. I GOT A NEW PERMANENT RELATIONSHIP WITH MY BOYFRIEND AND TING XXX.
“Yes yes yes..he said YES YES. AM GETTING MARRIED AGAIN. MY 4TH MARRIAGE. BOOYACKA XXX (sic)”
Sandra then posted a video in which she explained that she was selecting an engagement ring for her unnamed beau.
She said in the clip: “I’m just getting my fiancé his engagement ring. I hope he gets me one! Yes, Queen Bee life. I’ve been married three times and divorced, but I’m getting married again! Valentine’s Day. I proposed to him and he said yes. Uh oh! Anyway, I know that was a big surprise, but we’re in love.”
And in the caption, she wrote: “LOOKING FORWARD TO TO MY ENGAGEMENT RING FROM METO U..AND YOU TO ME (sic)”
Since announcing the news, Sandra has since pinned a new tweet to her profile, in which she displayed a picture of herself with her boyfriend and claimed he was the reason for her recent move to Birmingham from her home in Brixton, South London.
The bride-to-be was made homeless and jumping between hotels after quitting the show, but she recently revealed she's been given a place in an old people's home.
On bouncing back after having to accept benefits after spending the money she made on the programme - which reportedly earns stars around £1,500 a month - Sandra told The Sun Online: "When I left the show I had to give up my house so I hit the road.
"I went to live in hotels from July to December. I went back on benefits but I'm not on them anymore at the moment because I'm doing panto.
"I was homeless and penniless but I'm back now. I'm queen bee."
