Sophie is a housemate on Big Brother 2013: Secret & Lies
Age 20; Star Sign Cancer; Home Town East London
Sophie is feisty and Cockney born and bred in the East End of London. She was brought up around the gypsy community and describes her grandad as a “gypsy gangster”. She classes herself as a bit of a tomboy and “not a bimbo”, as she follows football and kick boxing.
Although she is a dental nurse, she hates working and is a self-confessed, spoilt daddy’s girl. She is close to her mum too – the family are all very loud and “in each other’s faces”. Her dad owns a scrap yard, which is a family business where her grandad, uncle and cousins all work. When she was younger she would go ‘scrapping’ with her dad, which involved picking up and finding pieces of scrap and metal.
Sophie says she gets bored of things easily and quickly moves on to the next thing. She says that her best trait is that she is funny and is happy to make fun of herself. She doesn’t take life too seriously. She says: “I have webbed feet and I’m always joking about them. You have to laugh at yourself”. Her friends would describe has as a “pusher” because she is always winding them up and pushing them to do things that they don’t want to do. She hates bitchy people, but says: “I’ll get on with anyone who gets on with me!”
Sophie admits that her worst trait is that she can have a temper. She hates being a dental nurse and says: “I can’t stand seeing the same old teeth every day. I hate it”. Sophie aims to have a change of career after Big Brother.
