Sophie has recently had her fair share of heartache, splitting from boyfriend Joel Corry earlier in the year.
In a heartbreaking, she revealed that her boyfriend of six years dumped her over the phone.
“I got out of the Geordie Shore house in September after filming and got a phone call from Joel,” she told new! magazine. “He was like, ‘I don’t know what it is Soph, but I just don’t think it’s going to work.’
“I was instantly like, ‘What the hell, is there another girl?’ He said there wasn’t but went, ‘I just don’t think that you and me will have a future because it’s just not what I want and I know you do. You want to settle down, and it’s understandable, but it’s just not for me and it’s not what I want.'”
She added: “I’m not angry that it was over the phone, because I was in Newcastle and he was in London. But I moved to Essex for Joel so I’m packing up and going back to Newcastle.”
